Just playing around....

Hi there,

So yesterday I mentioned that I was playing with the Simon Says Stamp August kit - finally.  After making my TMS card, I just kept going.  None of these are originals - they were inspirations from Pinterest. I don't know the original artists, although Tina Smith from Cards And Coffee is one of them.  She's very talented, just not very good about answering her email.

This first card I saw on Pinterest.  The original artist used a circle piece of card stock and stamped the sentiment.  Then added a bow with a paperclip.  I just wish it wasn't so rainy here so that the colors on my card are a little more true in the photo.  This is really lovely in real life.  I cut a piece of vellum using an old doily die from MFT.  I stamped the sentiment using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and because it was vellum it stayed wet long enough for me to add clear embossing powder.  The floral image was stamped on Ranger watercolor paper and colored with Zig Real Brush markers.  I tried to put stems in the jar but sort of made a mess.  I still like the overall card.

This next card was inspired by Tina Smith.  Mine didn't come out as good as hers, but I still like it.  This one I stamped the background flower stamp using Fog ink. 

This card was also inspired from Pinterest.  It's not exactly like the photo on Pinterest.  I did the sentiment strips a little differently.  I like how this turned out.

These were a lot of fun to create and I hope that whoever receives them in my donation box will enjoy them, too.

Thank you for stopping by.
