This is a simple stamping card that I made on the Whispe White thick card base. I like to make my simple cards on a regular Whisper White card front, but I felt like challenging myself!. This stamp set makes every card look beautiful, it is so easy to work with. I may dress it up with some sequins or rhinestones when it comes time to send it. 

I am entering the following challenge:...

With our rental work schedule stretching on longer than we'd planned, I did not get my final 4th of July cards posted when I would have liked. But better late than never right? Here's a quick video showing the final creations that I mailed out well before the 4th.

I enjoyed two days of crafting at my mom's. This is one of my later projects, I had this in mind as a #simplestamping project.

I finally had the opportunity to go visit my mom. I was SOOOO ready to craft with her after almost a month of constant work on our rental. Though I can appreciate flexing very rusty home repair and maintenance skills periodically, I really missed crafting! This is the first project I worked on. I started out creating two busy backgrounds and this one was the better of the two.

This is the first project I made at my June craft day with Libby. I had good intentions of entering this in a color challenge but our rental rehab project derailed me so I am just now getting to blogging the projects from that day which was almost two weeks ago now.

This stamp set is distINKtive (Stampin' Up!s pixelizing term) with alot of depth giving it a watercolor looking result....
