quick cards to go

often people come into the store looking for some inspiration or a new product to jump start their creativity and what i usually tell them is to use a card they have already made as a blueprint for a new card, and then usually once you've started stamping and putting things down on paper more ideas will start flowing.

well, to take it one step farther, i sometimes just about completely re-make a card, changing only the paper. it's pretty amazing how different something can look even when all you switch up is a card base and the patterned paper.

here are 3 cards i made using one of my all time favorite stamps, "to go cup" from a muse. it's such an easy stamp to paper piece with and a tiny bit of paper piecing can really make something pop! i also always use a white glaze pen to make the to go lid look like plastic.

just a random, easy tip from someone who usually appreciates a good idea to help her through a creative slump!
