No Stamps Needed

I love cards that I can make without any stamps at all!!  Saves me the time of pulling out the right stamp set, the inks, the cleaner, etc.  And I don't have to worry about chasing my kids away from a project. 

For this card, I was inspired by the Three Bugs in a Rug Bird-day collection.  The paper is double sided and cardstock weight.  All I had to do was edge punch the bird paper, add the sticker sentiment, and add the buttons.  Very simple but still memorable.

For paper only cards I also like to use Stampin' Up's Simply Scrappin kits. These kits take the guess work out of colour combinations and provide 6 sheets of stickers, 6 sheets of designer paper and 8 sheets of textured cardstock.  I made 10 open house invites with only a small portion of one kit and I only used one stamp (You're invited) along with some ribbon.

Edge Punch:  EK Success.  Loving their new punches that lock down for easier storage.
Buttons:  Stampin' Up! Designer Buttons.  2008-2009 In colours.  I was really disappointed that SU didn't come out with designer buttons for this years In colours.
