Inspired Stamps: Thinking Of you Trio of Cards

Happy Thursday, my blog friends! This week the design team was asked to make a trio of cards with a thinking of you theme. I was inspired by bricks when making these cards. I cut out strips of 6x6 paper from the latest Amy Tangerine paper pad at one inch wide and cut them at 1.5 inches. This will give you four "bricks" per one inch strip of paper. A whole piece will give you 24 "bricks", that's a lot of paper brick laying! I only cut about three strips from each of my four different patterned papers to make these three cards. Really simple and fun to make! I used the following Inspired Stamp sets: Thinking of You, Spring Sketches, and Butterflies and Blooms. I colored in the butterflies from Spring Sketches and the heart from Butterflies and Blooms with Copics, and made a butterfly contrail by drawing dots with a Memento ink Tuxedo Black marker and tracing over it in Copics. And as always (haha, srsly love this stuff), I added some burlap twine to the last card and two pearls.
