Hello lovely peeps in blogland! How are you? The hubs and I are just back from our delightful ocean vacation to Carmel-by-the-Sea, and I'm still relaxed and moving slow. Ahhhh. Five days with no television, no laptop and no phone calls. It was nice to 'check out' for a minute. We had a romantic time talking and just being together. We were celebrating being a couple for 20 years. He's still the person I want to hang out with the most! I'm very lucky. I also took some pix with my new camera, did some shopping, had dinner with my fav aunt and uncle and mostly, breathed the ocean air. I'll try to get busy and post some photos here to share.
Today I'm sharing some Summer cards I made a week or so ago. Again, with the orange and yellow! Must be ready to switch color palettes! Both cards are light hearted and CAS in design. Hope you like 'em! After I post this I need to get in gear and start working on my June Taylored Expressions cards. Thank you for coming by today!
First up a sweet bicycle card I made using stamps from Printworks. I bought these stamps at the RSC in April and finally got 'em inky!
The card base and the stamped layer are both watercolor paper. I colored the images with watercolor pencils. The saying is stamped on vellum with stayz-on ink. Super sweet and simple.
The flowers are a separate stamp, so I popped them up on some foam tape for dimention. My coloring is loose and flowy, not in the lines. This makes the project more casual.
My second card is made with a cute stamp set from Unity! I thought it was really fun and happy! Orange is perfect for Summer projects. And, I paired it with some lime green, and just a wee touch of prisma glitter!
