With Sympathy



Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a card using one of the new
stamps just released at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
called Floral Pattern Background.  I combined
it with a sentiment from Keep in Touch, Too.
I simply love the font!
Both sets are available now for pre-order.

My card design was inspired by the latest


I kept my card CAS while making
the background stand out using the
Floral Pattern Background stamp.
I played with various shades of blue
distress ink by tapping each color
on a acrylic stamping block,
lightly spritzing it with water and stamping
the block onto the stamp.
Next I spritzed some water color paper
and stamped my now water colored stamp
onto the paper.

I like how the shades of blue mixed
and the overall affect. So many ways
 to use the Floral Pattern Background stamp!

Have a wonderful day!

Lovely Lotus



Happy summer weekend friends!

I'm up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog
today with this new stamp set called Lovely Lotus,
which is available for pre-order right now!

The images in this set are just so pretty
colored with markers, pencils or water colored
like my card is.  I heat embossed the images in white
and then using just my pointer finger :) spread the colors
around.  Next I went over the areas 
that I wanted to highlight with a brush.

You can find plenty of inspiration for this set
up on the blog here.  Go check it out!
My design teamies are A-mazing!
