Have some of these on hand ...

simple cards for any occasion.  I've used a Crafter's Companion Humphrey stamp and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used bright, cheery colors for this project.  I made a simple card.

Very plain - very simple.  But here's the fun part ...

I can use it for many different occasions!  I used the text that came in this set and text from another set too.  I put the text images on the same white card stock I used for the main image.  I used a pale gray ink .  I dug out my colored pencils and wrote over the text to imitate a child's writing with a crayon.  I drew over my text with bright green.  And added some yellow to some of the greetings.  I backed them onto blue card stock.  You would do this in whichever colors that coordinated with the colors you used in your main image.


When I made the first and last greeting, I only inked the "Happy" from the stamp.  Then I used another stamp beside it to create a new greeting.

I'm thinking that if I make several of the Humphrey cards in the same set of colors, and a bunch of greetings, I can be able to just whip out a card for any occasion at a moments notice.

Here are the five cards with Humphrey and the greetings I chose.


I hope you enjoy all the Humphrey stamps.  I also hope you enjoy my idea for having cards on hand for many different occasions.


Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
