Transform the plainest note cards into cheery, even elegant, stationery with nothing more than a stamp pad. Just run the edge of the paper and envelopes along the pad (use one that's soft and spongy). These bright colors are perfect for spring and summer, but you can swap them out for different shades to suit your mood or the occasion. For a more formal look, try a gold or silver stamp pad.
