Cards for Non Crafters


Mike likes to look over my shoulder while I'm browsing the internet.  He's spying on me in plain sight!  Every once in awhile I'll point out a card that I love.  First, he only likes bright colors. Second, he pretty much doesn't like anything that looks "too crafty."  So I tried this same experiment with some non crafty friends (an experiment I ran a few years ago).  Same result (except for his obsession with color).  Cards we love may leave non crafters cold.

So I decided to make a few cards that I hope my non crafty friends will love -- literally just paper and ink (my favorite kind to make!). Plus they are so easy to mail.

Used a bunch of inks (cubes make it easy to get different colors).


I used You Are My Fave, a fun set in a great font from a new company, The Stamp Market.  (Can we handle a new company? I guess so!)



MOOD WHEN DONE = Colorful!

  1. Love these ... just couldn't convince myself I needed any of their stamps, but after seeing these I am closer to changing my mind.

  3. These are lovely and I love bright colors, too, Mike :-) I never thought of the non-crafters not caring for our layered, glittery, popped-up die cut cards. I will save myself some time and effort and make simpler ones for my pen pals - thanks for the info. I love that stamp.

  4. I'm a crafter, yet I love this kind of simple card. Furthermore, the bright colors are fantastic. Quick to make, quick to blog about, easy to mail. I love those colorful matching envelopes, too.

  5. ps: Had to go look at their stamps. Hadn't heard of this company. Can't help but love that Bloomed stamp set. I'd probably find a way to make it time consuming, sheesh.

  6. Nice cards, I really love that stamp set. When you first mentioned this company that was the set that caught my eye.

  7. Great cards! Thanks for these and the new company info! I ordered the set because I can make quick cards and guy cards! Sometimes, I want to send a card just because, but can't think of anything quick, these are quick and thoughtful too! Buy USA!
