Such Happy News

My eyes are naturally drawn to blues and greens, so when I first saw the Boho Indigo Medley, I was hooked. And a product medley takes all the guess work out out of it because everything coordinates just beautifully. The paper, die cuts, embossed paper, ribbon and adorable paper flowers are all ready to be used together. All I had to do was choose a layout, cut the paper, stamp the sentiments and voila! A beautiful card. It was so easy I made two using the same layout and different elements.

Sending You Sunshine

There’s something about watching the sunset over water that brings quiet peace and relaxation. Jo Anne Hewins captured that feeling perfectly in her version of this card. I had a good time recreating it myself. The Sending Sunshine stamp set makes it incredibly easy with overlapping stamps.

    3. Stamp the largest water stamp in Pool Party, overlapping the first layer.
    4. Next Stamp the Sun in Mango Melody and a smidge of Pumpkin Pie, overlapping the two water layers. To get the smidge of Pumpkin Pie, I first stamped the image in the Mango Melody, then pressed just the top edge of the sun onto the Pumpkin Pie ink pad. Practice on scrap paper first.

    6. Lastly stamp the Palm Fronds with Mossy Meadow ink.
