Robin in the Garden

I needed some pretty cards to send and give to all my dear friends. I made several cards using Artistic Outpost stamps. I used the Play Date Cafe Challenge Color Combo - Purple, Lilac, and Lime Green. Sounds a little wild but it really makes a pretty, girlie card. This card also qualifies for the Paper Take Weekly Challenge theme "in the Garden".

Stamps Used: Birds of a Feather (robin) and Bluebird (sentiment) both from Artistic Outpost. DP: Fancy Pants Designs - used on every card.
CS: Purple - Bazzill, Pale Plum - Stampin' Up, Lime Green.
Ink: Grape Jelly - Momento. Ribbons all from Micheal's.
I also made a series of the same card in Pink. The first pink card uses Chocolate Chip ink and CS from Stampin' Up.

For the second pink card, I stamped the robin in Handsome Hunter ink and used the matching CS from Stampin' Up.

The third pink card uses Old Olive ink and CS from Stampin' Up.

So, now my "to send box" has all these pretty cards in it ready to go out. I already delivered one. This is an easy way to make multiples. Find a good layout and just change the colors. Each card is different but, you don't have to spend two hours designing a layout for each card you make. That's my tip for the day! Okay, better get going.
