Happy Monday! It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge . This week our theme is “Keep it Simple.” These are cards you can make in about 10 minutes with some simple stamping.
As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.
For today’s card I used My Favorite Things “Beautiful Blooms” stamped simply and popped up for dimension. My sentiment is Simon Says Stamps “Friendship Messages” as designed by Kristina Werner. It’s all sitting on a nice kraft card base and Bob’s your uncle – it’s done.
Hope we’ll see your “Keep it Simple” cards over at the Cards in Envy challenge. You have until March 19th to enter.
Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. This month the theme is “Spring”.
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.
My Spring card today features “Hamlet Pigwit in the Planter”, which I colored using a few new colors of Daniel Smith watercolors. When I watercolor digital images, I used lightweight watercolor paper at 90 lbs and let your ink dry completely before you start. You may get some bleeding, but that is okay to use for shading.
Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has created.
Thanks for hopping with us today and may your spring days be thoroughly enjoyed. Our hop will end on Sunday March 12th 2017 at 6 am, and the winners will be posted on Wednesday March 15th at the From the Heart Stamps Blog. Please also visit us at the From the Heart Stamps Facebook group to share you cards and projects.
