I am trying to get back upstairs to do more crafting. My time is almost non-existent now with 2 kids. But I had a rare opportunity last night, and opted to fore go some sleep time to do a couple of things. Taylor is having "Cupcake Challenge #29" and so I decided to start with it. I broke out some stuff I bought a long time ago and hadn't really done much of anything with. Stamp set is Carte Postale by Stampin' Up! and it's coordinating scrapbook papers, combined with Basic Grey cardstock.
I also used grey and pale plum inks for the Merci circles. These were simple to do with my circle punches and I instantly was able to write out 2 more thank you notes for baby gifts!
Next I have the window and flowers from Stampin' Up!'s new set called Window Dressing. I got to use it at the catalog premiere party that my friend Heather hosted. I stamped the images and then took it home, along with the new In Color cardstock in Pacific Point which is very nice. I added some Basic Grey cardstock for matting. The images were watercolored with Earth Elements colors, including Not Quite Navy, which was very close to the new color.
As I said, I was keeping things simple to start back. Thanks for coming to check it out.
P.S. I have some pics from a simple Valentine craft that I made for my 3 coworkers. I'll post soon.
