Making a set of cards

Hi all!

I wanted to pop in and share some cards I've been working on. One of the things I've been trying to do is not just make one card at a time. I'm trying to find ways to make several cards at once so that I can stock up on cards. And, unfortunately, one type of card that's always needed is a sympathy or "praying for you" type of card. So, I have been making tons of them. Here's a couple of them:

 First, a MISTI tool is a wonderful thing! I truly don't think I'd be able to get so many cards done if it weren't for the MISTI. I used the Altenew stamp set "Thankful Peonies" and I can't say enough good things about this set! I LOVE it! It makes stamping look elegant yet it's very easy to do!

Second, the sentiment is from Hero Arts. Again, using the MISTI makes it so easy to stamp the sentiment quickly.

Lastly, the little sequins are also stamped. They're from a Hero Arts "Congrats" set. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the sequins but they are super cute!  Adding these little sequins finishes the cards. I think I've made close to 30 of these now in different color combos. They're on black cardstock and ready to send out.

I'll be entering the cards into 2 challenges--both of them "anything goes" challenges.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge and Word Art Wednesday. Still time to play along!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
