Good morning, I hope everyone's ok. I took a break from crafting over the Christmas & I think it's because of that that I really struggled to come up with ideas for this month on the blog - ideas that weren't Christmas cards, that is. I could have made dozens more of them. :)
So, my first two cards are REALLY simple. No fancy techniques, no layers. Here's the first one.......
I used one of the stamps from the Hobby Art Decorative Backgrounds set, inking it Split Pea Versacolor ink & using first & second generation stamping. The large seedhead from
Anna's Collection - Just For You was stamped with Boysenberry Versacolor & the sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with
Black Versacolor. I then added the bee, stamped with gold ink.
(The Hobby Art stamps are currently on special offer on the website - 30% off)
I made a top folding card & used a piece of Citrine card from Anna Marie Designs as an in between layer.
The second card is just as simple.............
It's another top folding card, I stamped another of the HA Decorative Background stamps onto the sides with Black Versacolor. I die cut three circles in the white card, stamped three different images from the Anna's Collection - Just For You set onto smaller white circles with old ink & attached another piece of Citrine to the back. I finished with the sentiment & a white adhesive pearl.
And that's it for today. I shall be back on Friday, when I will - hopefully - have something a little more involved to show you.

Until next time, happy crafting.
