Just a note...

Hi Everyone!  

Today's been a busy day, so I thought I'd leave you with just a little note... 

Today's card is a small one (4x4), but I thought it was perfect for a short note.  I thought I would try and stretch my stamps a bit and use one of the Stampin' Up! Christmas sets "Watercolor Winter."  It's a really pretty set that includes a poinsettia base image and an overlay (outline) image.  I stamped the poinsettia first with the lighter pool party ink and then with the darker baja breeze ink.  I then added some color to the center of the flower with copics and stickles. 

I used the pretty patterned paper for my color scheme, which incorporated the pool color in the flower and the navy ink from the sentiment.  I also wanted to pull the orange color, but I didn't have any paper that color.... but I did coincidently have a very similar ink color...

I just rubbed memento "peanut brittle" ink on a strip of vanilla card stock and voila!  The perfect color paper to finish the card!  The card was finished by rounding the opposite edges. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  



  1. So clever--love the shape of the card and the color!

  2. Very pretty - I love that poinsettia stamp. Good idea to make your own matching coloured card!


Many thanks for each and every thoughtful comment! Your feedback is genuinely appreciated--I only hope you enjoy my cards as much as I enjoy your comments!
