Note Cards for All Seasons

Ever since I first laid eyes on A Year of Sweets 1, 2 and 3 I've wanted to make a set of note cards using a variety of some of the images. Today I have a set of 4 to show you made with yummy Fabriano note cards. I stamped the images using Palette Hybrid Noir Black ink and then I watercolored them with SU re-inkers and an aquapainter. It was a nice break from Copics.

Each image was paired with a sentiment from A Year of Sweet Sentiments. I just LOVE that set! So many possibilities.

Rain or Shine - I'm here for you!

Thinking of You.
Warmest Wishes

You're the Pick of the Patch!


I added some taffeta ribbon and a Kaiser Craft red pearl to each card and I colored each cuppie with Regal Rose and Bordering Blue (similar to the way Jessie their creator colors them) to keep the set coordinating.

I hope you enjoyed this set of cards and I hope it's sparked some ideas for you. I just love sets of simple cards like this - they make great gifts. Another gift idea for a crafty friend would be to stamp these, but leave them un-colored and simply package them up with some pretty ribbon. If you don't have any Fabriano note cards you could stamp the images on panels of good quality watercolor paper and simply mount those panels on colored cardstock card bases. So many images and sentiments to play with!!! Have fun!

And have a sweet week.
