Wednesday's With Nature's Blessings Stamps - Our Story Is Just Beginning

This week I chose the Books stamp from Nature's Blessings Fine Art Stamps toBesid create a card.  I love the greeting "Our Story Is Just Beginning" that I added using BasicGrey alpha stickers.  That can apply to many occasions like anniversary, new relationship or just sharing a book with a loved one! I used my gorgeous Staedler watercolor crayons and a water brush to color the stamp image.  I find coloring to be so therapeutic!

It was fun to think of all the ways you can use this stamp, but this card was fun because (1) I got to color! and (2) I was able to use up many scraps of paper and little embellishments that I had laying around on my desk. 

Do you have any other ideas on how to use this stamp?  I have a few, so expect to see more of this stamp in the coming weeks.

Wednesdays With Nature's Blessings Stamps

Welcome to a new weekly blog series!  

I have recently collaborated with an Etsy seller called Nature's Blessings Fine Art Stamps.  They are a newer stamp company with some absolutely stunning stamps with plans for growth.  They have agreed to send me a few stamps for me to play with! 

The first one I chose to create with is Peony and I love the way this card turned out!  I used a ton of Copics on this so it was a true pleasure to color and create!

Copic colors used:  0, G43, G82, G99, BV0000, V06, V15, V95, W1, W3 and W5

Here's my card:

(sorry the colors didn't photograph well.)

I'll be sharing another card using Nature's Blessings stamps next Wednesday.  If you like what you see, please comment below.  It would be a pleasure to keep working with Nature's Blessings, and leaving comments is a good way to let them know if my work will be helpful for their business.  Thanks!

LAYOUT SHARE: So Loved and Swimming Lessons

I took a break from card making this past weekend and made two layouts just for fun!  I really enjoyed it!  

That has put me behind in posting and sharing new cards, and also to work on the surprise video I mentioned in my last video.  I have taped the surprise twice and am just not happy with the quality (lighting issues, mainly) so I will be filming again in better lighting and will get that posted soon.

In the meantime, here is what I created using Studio Calico's Blue Note Scrapbook Kit from December, 2013 which is still available by the way.  Just sayin!

Title:  Swimming Lessons

Title:  So Loved

You can't see it from the photo but the three leaves under the title are sprinkled with Diamond Dust and they sparkle just like crushed glass....so pretty!
