Wishing you Sunshine & Flowers!

Good Friday morning!

The designers from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps are joining together to showcase the lovely Sunshine & Flowers stamp set.  We are also issuing a challenge to create a card using at least 5 colors!  Fun, right?

I stamped the large floral image (which I LOVE!) on a watercolor paper die cut and embossed with white embossing powder and watercolored the image in, being sure to go over the edges of the image to help the white embossing pop.  I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and monochromatic so the focal image is center stage.

My second card was done basically the same way.  I stamped the smaller images in the set and the sentiment and embossed again with white embossing powder.  This time the paper wasn't watercolor, so I was a bit more careful with the amount of water I added.  

Love all these colors together - they make me so happy!

Now it's your turn!

Check out the SNSS company blog for all the specific details on today's featured stamp set as well as the winner from last week's challenge.  The designers have added their cards to the photo links below and we invite you to as well as you play along with our colorful challenge!

On a personal note....

I'm sorry it's been so quiet on my blog the past several weeks.  A month ago, we had water in our basement - our completely, lived-in, finished basement where my stamping studio is located, might I add... so, needless to say I haven't had access or time to create much for quite a while.  BUT, the remodeling work is over and my area is new and much improved and just waiting for me to have time to put things back so I can get working again!  I'm hoping with the long weekend ahead that I can get started on that process! ;)

Great use of color! Love that the cards have a lot of colors but don't look overwhelming.

Beautiful water colored cards and I like the doilies.
Sorry to hear about your basement. My stamping area is in the basement too.
