Thanks So Much

Sometimes inspiration comes from not only other papercrafters, but other products. When I first saw the In Symmetry Stamp Set, I was reminded of the Bloom by Bloom stamp set we had a few years ago. There were several beautiful cards I had seen from the Bloom by Bloom set that I still wanted to make, like this one from Julie Davison! It’s super simple- only 3 layers- and I love it! I used the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper, a little ink and some Just Jade ribbon and that’s it. So fun.

Miles Apart But Still in My Heart on Your Birthday

The solitary Poppy is stunning against a yellow watercolor background surrounded by bright colors. I combined three stamp sets and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch from my stash to whip up this cute card. The Pattern Party exclusive Host Designer Series Paper rounded out the fun with the colorful hearts background. This is my first time using the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set and I feel like we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the coming months. Such a simple way to add interest to a layer while still keeping the card light.
