Happy Monday!

Just popping in quickly to share this clean and simple one layer card using stamps that were in my stash for so long. I have this Close to my Heart stamp set, more of a valentine themed stamps waiting for me to play with it. Now is the time as Valentine’s will be just around the corner.

I just changed the sentiment differently as I intend to send this to someone special.

My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch N Scrap, card sketch # 65.

Holiday card

Hello there!

A quick and easy holiday card using minimal supplies.

I embossed the card base using an embossing folder. Then added the small tree and snowflake in the die cut circles,

I also embossed the sentiment Naughty or Nice from Sarah Hurley‘s Christmas Red Cup and Labels stamp set.

Great to use small elements in stamp sets to make as your focal point isn’t it?

I used a card sketch inspiration from Match the Sketch # 100.

Watercolored ornaments

Happy Saturday!

Today is a soft watercoloring to color these lovely Christmas ornaments. I used stamps from Sarah Hurley special edition stamp set by Jaine Drake.

I used the sentiment in the Robins set, while the ornaments are from the Traditional Christmas Ornaments.

I started with soft coloring then adding more colors after drying each of the watercolor layer. Love the soft effect it makes. I added some sequins for more spark.

Hey there

Hey there! It’s still been pretty quite here at blog I know. I have been working on some projects and need to  take as much time I have to complete them.

Anyhow, I’m back today for a quick card for Paper Smooches, Anything Goes (wk1) Challenge, Oct 4-10.

I used the Zoo Crew stamp set and combined it with Surf and Turf stamp set and Sentiment Sampler.

The Zoo Crew stamp is the first stamp set I bought from Paper Smooches. Love it to bits :)
