Vivid Greetings #5 and #6

OK. I decided I needed to use the last two little stamps of the Stampin' Up! Vivid Greetings set. I wasn't sure I would, but a tiny bit of inspiration came to me, so here they are. The little candle and the little heart are the ones from the set. Another set done! :)

I was thinking these stamps would make nice teeny tiny cards, but who makes teeny tiny cards??? But, that made me think of my teeny tiny envelope punch. Well, the punch is big, but the envelope is teeny tiny! The punch is from Marvy. So I punched out the envelope from yellow cardstock, folded it up and glued it together. I inked up the candle stamp with markers and stamped it on a small piece of cardstock which really IS a card, as it's folded in half. I cut a piece of white cardstock, matted it with the same yellow, mounted it on foam squares and added it to a card base. I glued the envelope to it, but the little "card" is simply inserted a little bit. I may decided to glue it in later. I also added Star Dust Stickles to the flame. 
This card was done the same way, except I forgot to mount the panel on foam squares. I added Star Dust Stickles to the heart. The little greeting stamps are from a set from Papertrey Ink. I love the sentiments and the fonts, but they are SO SO tiny that they have rarely been used by me. (I think they later came out with the same set, but bigger stamps.)

Edited to add: Bea - this set from Inkadinkado is called "Beauty Stems." Here is a link to Amazon so that you can see what it looks like. I think it's a beautiful set!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A teeny tiny "great job" goes to you, Lynette! These little bitty cards are darling and so inspiring in a big way!

Just love the cards!! If it's okay I might steal your idea to make a card for my friend. As always a beautiful job! Thanks too for the info on the stamp.

You made me laugh, Lynette! Who makes teeny tiny cards? They would be darling gift enclosures, but they're SUPER cute on the front of a regular-size card. Love the fresh colors!
