I'm a 45 year old married mother of one very busy 14 year old. I ventured into stamping and cardmaking a few years ago but only got serious about it a little over a year ago. I am a craft junkie and this one has stuck with me. It is so very addicting. There are lots of amazing people in this craft!! I currently run two Etsy shops - one with paper crafting supplies and the other has my handmade creations. Both can be accessed via links on the right side of my blog!
It's been a little while since my last Project Thursday post, but we are back with a new stamp set and a new set of project posts are ready to share with you.
For my project, I decided to attempt water coloring. The flowers in the Blossom Set are perfect to stamp onto watercolor paper and paint. I decided to keep this card super simple and do just that. One simple flower to stand out matted on Doll Pink Paper.
I'm in love with the flowers and the variety of the sentiments in this set.
I chose to keep it CAS again for my project - right down to the black & white. I made a card using one of the flowers and then to showcase the card, I will be using it with a gift bag die cut so the card can be displayed with the bag instead of tucked inside an envelope. It really makes the gift presentation so much nicer, I think.
I am going to try some watercoloring with these flowers in the near future, so stay tuned.
Now onto business - as with all of our releases, we are blog hopping and have a giveaway:
Taking a minute tonight to share a card I made last week.....
I splattered some white color mist onto a mini Kraft paper bag to use with a doily for the background and then added a die cut butterfly. The sentiment stamped on the bag says "Thank You". (not so clear in the picture)
Also - I have reduced the prices on almost all of the Destash stamps and some of the clearance ribbon in the shop! Stop over HERE and check it all out!
Literally..........last minute. I was supposed to have this post ready for early this morning. Oops!
The Precious Remembrance Design Team is sharing last minute Valentine's Day projects using the new Love Coupon Stamp Set.
For my project I made a gift tag using a black shipping tag and the cute coupon in the set. I die cut a couple of hearts from some Authentique papers and matched the tag to a silver glitter gift bag I bought a while back.
Here's a close up of the tag - the search-a-word paper is super cute too and I die cut it so that "love" was visible on the heart! I finished it off with a few sequins and some red metallic baker's twine.
