Card Set (Artful Delight)

Good morning!! Today I have a card set to share with you that I made using the June kit from Artful Delight...





Supplies Used From The Artful Delight June Kit: Crate Paper Portrait Paper - Honeymoon; Bazzill Cardstock - Coral
Other Supplies Used: Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; Hero Arts Background Stamp - Friend Definition; Ali Edwards Stamp Sets - Simply You, Loving Words & Sentimentally Ali; Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches; Recollections Pearls

Aren't those pretty?? I am so in love with all of the bright colors to choose from in the kit this month. :)

I've had a really bad creative block lately and one piece of advice that I received from my good friend Mel was to try and go simple and see if that helped any. Well, this was my first attempt at simple and I loooooove it!! This set of 8 cards only took me about an hour to make, and seriously, sometimes I can spend an hour on one card...yes, ONE. So making all of these in that amount of time, and loving how they turned out has really helped me. I think I may even feel a layout coming on soon...finally!

So if any of you out there might be going through the same thing I've been going through, try going simple and see if it works for you. You never know what might happen! Picking up a June kit from Artul Delight might help too. ;)
