NEW CARDS, NEW CARDS, NEW CARDS!!!






So I've finally gotten around to posting these babies. I took some supplies with me on my vacation, but wouldn't ya know it... I didn't bring all I needed. Oh well, I guess that's what I get for trying to pack stamping supplies at 10pm the night before I left. :o)
Anyhoo... Here are some cards that I've made and I hope you enjoy them. I really needed some kid birthday cards and I liked the black and red card I saw on SCS (Splitcoaststampers.com). I used Watercolor crayons to color the kids as well as the yellow and green card with the flowers. I was on a Watercolor crayon binge... couldn't get enough! I've heard of stampers using "Staz-on" black ink for their watercoloring and so I tried it. I love it! The black doesn't run at all! And although Stampin' Up! will say their black doesn't run on white and vanilla paper, my experience has shown me otherwise. I will have to buy the "Staz-on" cleaner as it stains the rubber on your stamps, I really think I will be using it a ton more!! The other two cards that are the same in design are different only in that one is done in pixie pink (the first) and the other in regal rose. They were more complex on SCS but I wanted one that I could personalize (b-day, anniver., etc) so I made it simple.
