Hello there! Glad you could stop by and take a peek at a couple of cards I made this weekend. The first one I will enter into the Out of a Hat Challenge and showcases one of my favourite go-to stamp sets – Close To My Heart’s Love Life.I have used this set on many projects. It has some fabulous shapes and swirls that are great for a variety of projects. Here, I wanted to utilize the big swirl and stars, so I went for a simple card that could be used for a birthday or to congratulate someone.
The colours were pulled from the background paper that I received in a prize pack from Vivian over at ContadinaK (thanks Vivian!). If you have a few moments go check out her blog. It’s chock full of beautiful handcrafted projects. And she does video tutorials too!My second card uses a water colour background, which I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while. After brushing on the water colours (green, blue, purple) and letting them dry, I stamped the flowers on with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them in with Copic markers.
This card is really pretty in person. One of the many things on my paper crafting to-do list is to learn how to take better photos. So many things to learn!
Hope you are having an excellent weekend. Here’s to a great week. Talk at you soon!
