Mailable Monday # 142


Happy Mailable Monday!

Today I'm posting three cards, and will be speaking about what I call the 

power of "three"

When you are making simple no layer cards you still can achieve depth

with just three stamps, and three colors....the power of three!

This card features the dragonfly inked with Night of Navy from 

Awesomely Artistic stamp set. Leaf inked with Garden Green, from Timeless

Textures stamp set, and the bottom stamp was inked with Crumb Cake.  

Start with your lightest color when layering the stamps. 


Okay lets check out the second card. The lace stamp is from 

Grateful Bunch with Smokey Gray ink. 

Teacup is from Thanks a Latte inked with Rose Red. 

The last color with the cactus is Always Artichoke. With this card

the teacup was the perfect place to add a greeting, but as you see in the first

card a greeting on the front is not always needed. 


And here is my last example using the power of three. 

I inked the vine with Old Olive, the flowers were gone over with Cajun Craze marker. 

There is a splotch of Crushed Curry, and the third stamp using the straight lines

was also done in Cajun Craze. Again I didn't use a greeting on the front, but this

type of card would function great as a note card, or if a greeting is needed it can be stamped on the 

inside. 

So get out your stamps and ink, and use that power of three to create some great

Mailable Monday cards.
