Travel Cards

I have been doing a number of "cute" or "whimsical cards lately, so I thought I would switch and post something a little different.  I love the images on these two cards.  They are from Hampton Arts.  They are great images to use as there are so versatile.

The first card shows only a partial image from the Hampton Art stamp.  I cut it to fit the beautiful Cheery Lynn die,  I like the fact that there are a number of different little images which can be colored.  This I did with Copic markers.
Finishing off  the card, I attached a ready-made embellishment which says "Dream" with a small butterfly attached.  This is what I am doing  now as we  almost made a trip to Paris this summer, but decided otherwise.  Now I can only dream of going.

My second card is also a travel-inspired card; I put the Hampton Art image on a very small mat of burgundy and then place that on some beautiful designer paper which is gold and has copper in the design  All of this is placed on a burgundy base card.  I didn't put a sentiment on this card as I didn't want to distract from the image.  Again, Copic markers were used to color.


  1. Your travel cards are great! I especially like the 2nd one with all the textures and color contrasts. Very pretty!

  2. Ooh, nice! Hampton has some great stamps - love how you used them.

  3. Beautiful, Vicki! Love that second one especially, on the burgundy. Great colors.

  4. I have that Hampton stamp. I love what you did with it.
