Easy Events Cards

 Hi there! Here is a cute set of cards so easily made using the Stampin'Up! stamp set Easy Events. This set has 8 sweet designs that cover every occasion, so if you are new to stamping this set makes a great starting point to your stamping collection.

These cards are 4 x 4 inches. The images have been stamped on Whisper White card using black Staz-on ink - great to use when colouring in images as the ink will not bleed into your lighter colours. The images were coloured using Stampin'Up! Stampn'Write markers.

 The tree above was coloured using a blender pen but the rest of the images were coloured direct to card.

The coloured cardstock was stamped in co-ordinating ink colours using the stamp set Confetti. I have a hard time leaving blank space on my cards so love little filler or background type stamps, they are perfect for filling in those blank spots.

As a lovely gift you could make up a set of these cards and pop them into a hand crafted gift box, they would make someone very happy.

 If you wanted to jazz these up a bit more you could add glitter highlights or add an extra layer to the stamped image by highlighting an aspect of one of the images. For example you could restamp the image, colour just the icing of the cupcake and cut it out and adhere over your image already on the card.

Also to make the images "pop" i have outlined them in Sahara Sand marker. It's a bit hard to tell in the photos. The other way to make your images look clean and crisp is matting them onto black card.
You can mix and match colours, there is so much fun to be had with this cute set!

I've used smooth card stock apart form the Sending you Love card where I used Wild Wasabi textured card. Other colours used are Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Peach Parfait and Daffodil Delight card.

I hope you have lots of fum creating these cute cards!
