Bright Wishes with a Touch of Nature

There are some stamp sets that look too difficult for me to work with. The Bright Wishes stamp set from the Annual Catalog was one. Until Hunter picked it out…and I decided to give it a go with the Stampin’ Blends. It was so enjoyable and relaxing coloring it in and I love the soft colors. I am so glad Hunter is always ready to pick a set that takes me out of my comfort zone. She’s an awesome enabler, too 🙂

Simple Touch of Sympathy

Unfortunately, there are times in our lives that we need to make sympathy cards. I prefer floral cards with a small spot of color. I enjoy sponging color onto the wooden Touches of Nature Elements. Just make sure you protect your table. Use a scrap of paper and sponge onto the wooden piece while it’s laying on it. If you try to hold it while sponging, the ink will not cover it completely. This card also uses a couple retired products, but you can always substitute similar ribbon and Designer Series Paper.
