Cards I've Been Creating!

Just wanted to share a couple of cards that I have been creating and finally finished!

I've been making sets of five cards and envelopes to put in cello bags with a topper for gifts. This one uses Brocade Blue and Mellow Moss. I LOVE Mellow Moss, but haven't used it in a LONG time. Very Versatile was the stamp set that I used on this card.

My second card is this one:

I used an old Hostess Set from Stampin Up called A Little Bit of Happiness for this card. The base is Kraft, and I also used Ruby Red and So Saffron and Watercolor paper. After I stamped the flowers with Black Stazon, I watercolored with reinkers and my old faithful aqua painter! I used Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red and So Saffron reinkers.

While I was working on this card, I had adhered the stamped watercolor paper to the Kraft base and was paper piercing above the stamped image and realized that I was piercing through both layers of the card base! I was VERY upset and put the card aside for about 24 hours so I could calm down and redo it.
