Quick Cards with Sweet Nothings Collection

I'm always in a hurry when it comes to creating cards and it never seems like I have the right ones made up in advance. So recently I have started a card making series at Scrapbooker's Paradise called Fast & Fabulous where we make 8 different cards in 2 hours. Now this is a VERY fast paced class, but everyone seems to love the idea of walking away with so many finished cards that can be used for all different occasions. For the Spring Edition of Fast & Fabulous I used the Sweet Nothings Collection from Kaisercraft. I LOVE all the soft colors, flowers and butterflies in these papers and it was so easy to put together the 8 cards. In fact, I came up with even more ideas but had to stop myself before I ended up with a 4 hour class!

I love how these papers can be used for a masculine card!

I added the mini dress form die from Tim Holtz. It's a perfect size for cards.

This gorgeous vintage image is from LaBlanche. I stamped it with brown Stazon and then colored it using Cut n' Dry nibs and Distress inks. You could also use a water brush for this effect.

The chipboard butterfly was inked and then dipped into some hot UTEE (in a melting pot). The flecks are from glitter that was added to the melted UTEE. It gives the embellishment some nice dimension.

Clean and simple these papers get a chance to shine!

The pocket on the front is created with a small white bag from Canvas Corp. What a great place for a gift card.

Banners are all the rage right now and I have to admit that I have fallen in love with them. They are so easy to create and a great way to show off some of the amazing patterns in this collection.

I had to use as many butterflies as I could in this class! Tim Holtz Mover's & Shaper's butterflies are some of my favorites!

I hope you enjoyed these quick and simple cards and a few ideas for using your stash of Sweet Nothings papers by Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by,

Chelsey
