Quick post today...my arthritis meds are making me queasy! Yuck! Getting in the way of my stampin' mojo!
I made 2 cards last weekend that I had not yet posted. They feature the new stamp set Simply Soft. Love these floral images! Great for water-coloring! I went crazy on the first card...using all of the new in-colors. It was a personal challenge. Not thrilled with the result, but hey, I met my challenge! Card base is chocolate chip...I added 2 strips of pool party, embossed with petals a plenty folder. I stamped the image with stazon black on watercolor paper, then colored with all the new colors. I layered it on lucky limeade and calypso coral, and added some of the new polka dot ribbon. I made it a birthday card with my good friend Teeny Tiny Wishes and my punches.
The next card is much cleaner and simpler...and I like it so much better! I used a blushing bride card base. I stamped the image on watercolor paper, colored with wild wisteria and lucky limeade. I added some ribbon scraps from an earlier project (colored with my wisteria marker.) A strip of lucky limeade lines the bottom. I used my scallop trim punch, and the sentiment is from Kind Thanks.
Before I leave, I want to remind you there is still time to participate in the Friday Mashup challenge! Since I hosted this week,I want to see everybody!! LOL!! http://fridaymashup.com
