Greetings friends!  I am so happy you stopped by today.  Today I wanted to share a series of cards that I made using some of the new "adulting" clear stamp phases.  They are fantastic! Times are really tough right now for all of us, so I thought these cards would be fun to send to friends or family who might need a pick me up.
 
One of the things I would like to point out about the cards today is that I used the same background stamp for all of them (Spiral Tiles CC384).  I simply changed the color of ink and paper to get very different looks.  I kept the layout the same though...just in case I wanted to give them away as a card set/gift.  I think having the cards match in some way makes for a much more cohesive look.  Plus, then you don't have to keep coming up with different layout ideas!
 
I listed the stamp sets for the phrases I used after each of the cards
 
Card 1- Pink
 
Card 2- Orange


Mondays CL1030
Card 3- Yellow


Card 4- Green



 Card 5- Teal

 

 Mondays CL1030

Card 6- Purple

 
Real Adult CL1028

I hope you enjoyed these cards!  The sentiments definitely make me smile.  Do you have a favorite?

Love these! How did you get that angle for the top of the card? Is that a die? Or did you measure? I am loving how it looks but don't know how you did it! (don't judge -- I'm old)
