Keep Dreaming


"Clean and simple" cards always appeal to me, and this week's CAS(e) this Sketch! (CTS182) is a really nice simple sketch.  Using a card base of Desert Sand cardstock, a bit of watercolor was washed onto some watercolor paper using the new Medium Flat Waterbrush.  An adorable turtle and sentiment from the Outback Adventure stamp set were stamped using Memento Black ink.  After stamping a couple of turtles onto a piece of White Daisy cardstock as a liner for the inside, the card is complete and ready to brighten someone's day.  



All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

Throwback ~ Fruit of the Vine

If you have been a CTMH consultant for several years, then you probably recognize this very "oldie, but goodie" Fruit of the Vine stamp set.  You may also notice the infamous Balloon String stamp that was used to add a bit of vines to the leaves.  If you remember using these stamps, please leave me a comment and let me know if it put a smile on your face to see this old favorite stamp set.  Bonus if you can identify the "throwback" ink colors used.  


One of the challenges this month for Heart 2 Heart Challenges is a "throwback" to dearly loved, retired Close To My Heart products.  And this Fruit of the Vine set was one of the first stamp sets that I purchased when first introduced to CTMH over 14 years ago.

For A "Magical" Friend


Enjoyed a fun "stamping day" with a friend today and created this "magical" card using the For a Friend stamp set and papers from the Magical kit.  Design of the card was inspired by Mojo Monday 458, which is full of layers and perfect for the variety of patterned papers in the Magical kit.  And this card is also perfect for the Magical challenge this month on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog.
