Over the Hill - THE STAMP DOCTOR

Hi everyone! I am here today sharing a couple of cards I created using the set called Over the Hill Vintage Stamps. These cards were so easy to put together I was able to get two birthday cards created in no time. 
Let me show you what I did.

I first cut out some birthday theme'd cardstock. Since I was making a "Vintage" theme card, I stuck with the brown and beige tones.

I also used the die called Large Bow Die. I cut that on some coordinating cardstock and also cut a strip of the same paper. 

I adhered the strip towards the bottom of my cardstock and popped up the bow with some foam tape. 

I then stamped my sentiment  on some lighter brown cardstock using brown ink. I rounded the edges and adhered the sentiment just above my bow.

The stamp set had two other great sentiments that also worked well for the inside of my cards!

Shaker Easter Card

Hello friends! I am here today sharing a shaker card using some fabulous Easter paper from THE STAMP DOCTOR. The Easter Egg paper was so cute, i decided to cut it up and use the eggs in a shaker card.

There are also several other small dies that would work great for shaker cards as well. I was able to use the small egg die to add add some additional eggs that coordinated with my paper. 

I had several pieces of coordinating cardstock to choose from, but I ended up going with the blue and green plaid.  I did cut out some eggs using this cardstock as well.

I created a frame and added some acetate for my window  I then added some foam tape around the edges.  

I was careful to add my eggs and some coordinating sequence to create a fun Easter card.

STAMPlorations - Water Color challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to another challenge over at STAMPlorations. Our theme this month is Watercolors. This can be either really easy or really difficult. I went the easy route.

I used my Nuvo Aqua flows and some water to create this background. It is a very easy technique with a stunning background. 

 The stamp I am using is called Best Version of You. I also used the arrow stamp from the Scribbly Splattery Grunge Set.  I took the inspiration of the sketch as well for my card. 

I hope you will be able to join our challenge this month and play along. Don't forget to use STAMPGIRLMONICA for your 20% discount.
