Question Question of the Week: What's the quickest card you've stamped?

I don't know about you, but I'm finding it harder and harder to stamp. Find the time to stamp, that is. Sometimes, I'm lucky to get a half an hour to stamp that birthday or graduation card before I am out the door.

Quick, shouldn't always mean dirty (as in quick and dirty). Sometimes, the best cards are the ones that you dash out without over thinking.



This card took all but 20 minutes, tops. Assembled from bits and pieces and scraps of paper I had lying around and the " Words of Love " stamp set from this last release I had yet to ink up.

Pulled out the Heart Toppers , and there was the card. Truly, the thing that took the longest was searching for the rhinestones.

What is the quickest card you've ever stamped?

Adorable card, Alma! Here's a recent one for me that went fast. I find if there's no coloring or fussy cutting, I can make a speedy card.

paper & ICE: Neutral "Noelle"

So far mine is the one I made last night for this month's TCP Tues. - Used a bunch of die cuts I had lying around, one stamp set, stickers and very little stamping. Came together pretty quickly which was good considering I still had a migraine.

I only wish I could put together a card like this, period. Such a great layout and the colors are wonderful.

The quickest card I ever stamped doesn't use any TCP images (cards with my TCP images tend to be a real labor of LOVE )!

This one came out real CAS...I didn't have the heart to do much to it as it seemed perfect as is.

It's nice to see you on here more Bonnie (although I'm sad to see that you are still suffering from migraines)!

Gorgeous colors on your card!

Thanks Linda. I"m trying to "get out" more even with the pain. Doesn't always work, but I'm trying.

My cards are usually pretty involved, especially when I use image that needs coloring (that takes me a while!), but this is a card I had done to submit for publication, so I made sure to keep it simple:
