Just Breathe

Don't you just wish you were sitting in this chair right now? It just looks so peaceful.

With this card I used an empty clear block, an ink pad and the Stampin Spritzer to achieve a different type of watercolor. It does take some practice,, but I think this one came out pretty good for my first one.

I'm going to go find my peace. I hope you like my card. Leave me a message and let me know or just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

Enjoy Today

I've never owned an orchid. I've heard they are difficult to grow, and if it needs water to survive, well.... then I won't be owning one. My husband is the one that keeps our plants alive in my house. I love plants and flowers, but for some reason, watering them escapes my brain.

Now this orchid is something I can get used to. Isn't it stunning?? I had such a hard time deciding on what colors I wanted to make them, and for some reason blue jumped into my head. I don't know if you can even find a blue orchid, but does that really matter?
With all of the color choices you have using all of the Stampin' Up! ink pads, your color choices are unlimited!

This set comes as a bundle or as separate stamps and framelits. If you don't own a big shot you can fussy-cut out the pieces of orchid with scissors.

I hope you like this card. Leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "hi!"
Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

You Fill Me With Happiness

This is such a pretty card with all of the colors that are used. It could have so many possible uses for many different reasons.You can change up the colors and make it very personal for any of your favorite people.

This card is very stamp-challenging until you get used to it. It uses a technique called "Stamp Off." You ink up a stamp, and before you press onto your paper, stamp it onto a scrap piece or onto grid paper. That takes a layer of color off of the stamp. Then press your stap onto your paper. It comes out a shade lighter than normal. You then take the second stamp in the two-step set, ink it and press onto the first image in full color. This stamp set is made for this technique and makes the flowers look more three dimensional.

I hope you like this card. Leave me a message below and let me know, or just say "Hi!"
Thanks you for stopping by! Have a great day and Happy Stampin!
