Watercolor Wonder Note Cards - last sample

Finally, the last design in the Watercolor Wonder note card set and I might love this one the most!  I used the Blessed Easter single stamp and left the sentiment off of it. 

The flowers are colored in with Wild Wasabi, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral markers and my sentiment is from Countless sayings.

Note Cards day 2

I have a couple more cards to share today that I created with the Watercolor Wonder note cards.  For the first one, I used the Love and Sympathy and Springtime Hello stamp sets.

On the second one, I used the Petal Parade stamp set, some Watercolor Wonder dsp and candy dots.

Watercolor Note Cards

I don't normally make note size cards, but since I just LOVE the Watercolor Wonder patterns in the Occasions catalog, I decided to try the note card package.  Over the next few days I will share with you the quick and easy cards I created with the package (and I do mean QUICK and EASY!).  

A simple piece of card stock cut into a banner, a sentiment and mat and you have a beautiful note card to send to someone special!  The card on the right isn't any more difficult - just punch out a sentiment and add a strip of card stock, a Sweet Sorbet accessory flower and a candy dot!

Sweet Baby

The Late Night Stampers challenge right now is - Use a framelits or die on your project - let's see how creative we can get!  I chose to use the Banners framelits and Baby, We've Grown stamp set from the Occasions catalog

For the blue shoes, I used my Marina Mist marker on the stamp so I didn't get the "cute boy" saying included in my images.

Love you More

Isn't washi tape fun to play with?  I just put some random strips on the Whisper White layer before I added my image from the Love you More stamp set.

 To complete the card, I added some Natural 5/8" Chevron ribbon just behind the sentiment and image layer.

Wonderful Life

I thought the saying from Perfect Pennants (Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful) would look fun with the coffee cup from Perfect Blend.  And there is that Scalloped Tag Topper punch again too, LOL!  

While most of the designer series paper on these cards comes from the Quatrefancy specialty paper kit, there is a piece from Fresh Prints and the 2012-2014 in color stack as well.

Happy Dahlia

This card is currently one of my Stamp A Stack options and it uses two of my favorite stamp sets (I guess I have a lot of those!) - Regarding Dahlias and Hello Lovely.  It is a great assembly line card if you have a few to create!

Kind and Cozy - two ways

I seem to have a difficult time using the Kind and Cozy stamp set even though I really like the images.  For some reason, I just can't figure out fun ways to use it most of the time.
One thing I really like about the set is the circle that you pop out when you mount the image used above - as you can see I used the circle as a stamp as well to add some color to the middle of the outer image.

On each card, I used some scraps of Strawberry Slush that I had embossed with the Honeycomb folder and the circle with its stamped images.

Which one do you like better?

Mixed Thanks

I pulled out my Mixed Bunch stamp set for this card - it had been collecting dust!  It is paired with the Decorative Dots folder (SAB 2014) and Lots of thanks stamp set.

I chose these colors because I intended to use the Gingham Garden dsp and then decided against it when I put the card together.

A little Island Indigo baker's twine finished up the card on the outside.

And another stamped flower on the inside...
