Hey there! Well... we survived our yearly two days of snow here in the Pacific Northwest! The snow is pretty, but I really don't like driving it in. Since I didn't go anywhere except the store because of the snow I had some time to spend making a couple of cards. Both feature the word hello. First up is a card for the Inspired By challenge. It is a lovely inspiration photo of a pink pitcher full of what look to me like tiny purple flowers and greenery. It was so pretty I just had to play along. I thought I had an image in my stash that was similar, but I don't so I used some images from the Reverse Confetti Tall Blooms to create my little bundle of flowers. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored simply with Copic markers. I then die cut all the images with the matching die. I die cut the Reverse Confetti cover panel from pink cardstock and then several times from thin white cardstock. Everything was adhered together and then attached to a white cardstock card base. I arranged my floral images on the panel and then added the sentiment from the Tall Blooms set that I stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne in and die cut using a banner die from Reverse Confetti. I finished off the card with some little pearls from Trinity Stamps. I will also add this to the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge for February.
The second card was made just for fun and I used the sweet little stamp set called Happy Mail from Honey Bee Stamps. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and did simple watercoloring with the Altenew 12 pan watercolor set. Once everything was dry I die cut it with the matching die. Before I watercolored the envelope that the flowers are coming out of I had colored a patch of the cardstock to determine if I liked the color I had mixed up. I used that little patch to die cut the tag from and stamp the hello sentiment from Happy Mail on it. The tag was a little freebie from Trinity Stamps! I embossed the kraft panel with a swiss dot embossing folder and then adhered the envelope image to the panel. I finished off the card with some little jewels that I had also purchased from Trinity Stamps. I'm really loving the pearls and jewels I bought from them and can't wait to buy more!
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
