Simple Cards

Happy Friday!
Today I wanted to share a couple of simple cards that I created with product from the March Hip Kit.

I love the October Afternoon Little Flyers in this kit...they just shout 'time to party!' Shall we celebrate a birthday or the arrival of spring with this card?

The grid stamp I used in the background is from the American Crafts Jared clear stamp set found in the March Embellishment Add-On Kit.

And this next card is soooooo super simple. It took no time at all! Which is perfect for me...because I always seem to need a birthday card at the very last minute!

The Pebbles dimensional embellishments from the kit are exactly 1" in diameter. So I used a 1" circle punch to create three circles out of the cheery yellow polka dot paper, lined them up, stitched them down...added the cute Pebbles embellishment (which already had stitching down the middle), added a sentiment using a Rubber Soul stamp...and there you have it! Super fun and simple birthday card!

For more daily inspiration, be sure to visit the Hip 2B Square blog and check out what the other designers have been creating with the March kit!

ps...Don't forget that there's still time to play along with the 'Show Me Your Chevron' theme over at the Paper Issues blog. There are fabulous kits up for grabs...and tons of inspiration! Be sure to link up by tomorrow, April 14th, for a chance to win! I didn't realize how much 'chevron' is in my stash...and it's sooooo fun!
