Wild Safari Love from Unity

Good morning! Dropping by with a couple more simple cards that I watercolored in the hospital waiting room last week using some new and newer Unity Stamp Company releases. Once I got home I die cut these both with a fabulous new die from Simon Says Stamp that just released today - Wonky Rectangles.


I love these sweet animal images - so simple and fun for watercoloring! See the touch of pink that I tucked into a few random parts of this one? I thought it added a fun girly touch!


And then how much sweeter could this one be for a new mama?!?!?


Because I had lots of time, I really took my time to layer bits of color and build from soft washes up to darker ones. I really love how that extra time to play worked out in the end.

Thinking of You - White, Kraft, Black, and Gold

Hello! I'm stopping by to share a card using the Cherish release from Simon Says Stamp that just released! I had fun combining a couple new stamp sets with a couple dies from previous releases for my simple color combo on this card!


I started off with some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and heat embossed a bunch of the floral images from the new Summer Flowers stamp set in white. I added some distress inking around the edges with Antique Linen distress ink, then added some splatters of Gold Watercolors and thinned down white paint. I die cut some white Basic Circles to create a bit of a focal point, then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the new Thoughtful Messages on a black Basic Banner. I layered them all together, then added some machine stitching around the edges and a few Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins to finish it off. I love how simple and elegant this stamp set can be - so fun!

Welcome to the World Little One

Good morning! Dropping by with another simple little card with some of my hospital watercoloring! This new little cutie from Unity Stamp Company is the current freebie with $75 purchase for the newest sale. It will be released a bit later on it's own for purchase! Seriously adorable though, isn't it? 


I had already watercolored it obviously, so when I got home I die cut it in a simple circle shape, added some pattern paper underneath, and then adhered everything together, adding a simple wrap of jute twine to finish it off.

Friends Fill Life's Garden

Good morning! Dropping by this morning with a little card I put together using a couple recently released stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and a few Altenew inks that I recently purchased and fell in love with! 


As I was swatching all my new ink colors, and looking at them all pretty and everything, I pulled up some color combos on Pinterest that I had been wanting to try, and jotted down the names of the colors for some of them. So when I sat down to make a card, I pulled out the ink colors that worked with this color combo:


I used the new Sending Flowers Stamp set - while it is designed for stamping on envelopes, but also works beautifully for cards like this! I added a sentiment from Friends of Life as well that went perfect with the florals. I die cut it with a Stitched Square, then used a hole punch to add some little half hole punches to each side tor est my jute twine in. A bit of Sparkling Clear Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh and some thin gold Glitter washi tape finish this card off.
