Hi friends! Happy Wednesday, and happy Spring to you! Today I have a pair of cards to share that I made with the adorable Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton’s Nook and paper from Photoplay Paper’s Gypsy Rose collection.
This past weekend, I got together for crafting and dinner with some old stamping buddies of mine. Each of us designed and brought a project for the group to do, and this was mine. My friends are Stampin’Up peeps, so I knew they’d enjoy playing with something new. And it doesn’t get much cuter than the playful critters in this set, and all their cute accessories, too.
I made one card to bring with the pup and his stack of love letters, and a second there with the bear and his coffee. I know I’d smile if someone brought me all those cups! The images were stamped onto Bristol smooth cardstock and die cut with the matching dies. My friends really enjoyed trying out watercoloring with the Zig clean color markers. The design is based off a sketch from PageMaps. I printed out the January CardMaps, and am hoping to work my way through them.
Here is the fun sketch I used. How did I do?
Thanks so much for stopping by today! It’s actually snowing right now in my neck of the woods, so it certainly doesn’t feel very springlike on this second day of the season. Hope there’s sunny skies ahead for you.
