Hop To It!

Have you seen the latest from Simon Says Stamp?! The Hop To It release is live and it is fabulous! So many cute stamps and dies to choose from! And many have a spring time feel and I was QUITE ready for that here in snow-filled Massachusetts!

Thinking of You


I used the brand new Artful Flowers stamp set for this card. I LOVE these flowers! They just cry out for watercolors, so that is exactly what I did with them! I painted the flowers with watercolors and then used Spectrum Noir Aquas to add some depth of color to the stems. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold on a strip of grey paper, trimmed it into a banner, and adhered it with foam tape. A few simple sequins finish it off!
