You Make My Heart Bloom


Just a simple card today.  I was making cards one night with a girlfriend.  It was very interesting to see the difference in styles.  After a couple of hours, she had assembly lined about 30 one-layer cards.  All of them stamped first and then coloured later.  I on the other hand had completed 4 case cards and a more elaborate design team card.  For me that had been a most productive night!  The awesome thing about it was that she pretty much opened every tin of stamps I owned.  I found this beautiful image that I had never inked before.  What was I thinking?!?  The card is stamped on cream rather than white and for that reason it does look so much better in real life, softer than a white card.

I really need to stamp with friends more often, it's so inspiring!

  3. This is cute - I love the look of clean and simple but when I do them they always look unfinished.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog - the gold baubles are die cut from some old gift tags I had lying around unused. Here is a link to them - http://cuddlybuddly.com/shop/v12351-marianne-design-creatables-dies-star-bauble-lr0183/

    Hope this helps / sorry if your purse cries "no more, no more!"
