Lazy Day Results

Hello there!

I took a 'lazy day' today. :) I'm still not moving much and plan to get into bed early! Mama needs some rest! Part of my rest today was a little crafty time. I wanted to log in and share a couple of cards before I turn in early. :)

I had fun with the watercolor technique on my first card:

I clear embossed the Hero Arts background stamp onto my card panel. Then brushed on blue metallic gelato (rubbed on a craft mat and spritzed with water). I then layered Outdoor Denim (CTMH) ink over it after it dried. I applied it the same way, by rubbing on a craft mat, spritzing with water, and then brushing it on. The globe stamp is also Hero Arts and stamped in the same Outdoor Denim ink. The letter stickers are from Elle's Studio.
I was inspired to make this card specifically for The Hubs based on the inspiration found over at A Blog Named Hero.
I am also playing along with Addicted To CAS's challenge codeword:World.
Next up, I was playing with Paper Smooches again. :) I made this one based on both Curtain Call and Fusion inspiration. Kind of a wintery/Valentine thing going on. Love the colors.


I used my Warm Hearts stamp set by Paper Smooches.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
