Today’s card uses the Beautiful You stamp set. This set is really something different. I love it!
These stamps are very artistic, they make beautiful scenes. And on top of that, they are amazingly easy to stamp! They give a clear crisp image.
It doesn’t take any time at all to make a great card! For this card I stamped the girl with the umbrella, then I stamped some designer series paper with the same stamp. I cut out the umbrella from the dsp and pieced it onto the umbrella on the girl. Super easy — and a big WOW!
I added a quick “sky” above the umbrella using the Sale-a-Bration set called Delicate Details (FREE with a $50 order!). Then I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and punched it out with a circle punch. Quick and done!
Oh, I forgot…I used Watercolor Pencils on her dress! It’s so much fun to color…so relaxing! And, making cards is relaxing, don’t you think? That’s something I really like about card making, it gives me a chance to get away into a world of colors and papers and lace (sometimes), and forget everything else. What about you? Why do you like card making? Let me know, I love your comments!
