Making Cards Today!

Today was day 2 of my stay at home stay safe life! What have ya’ll been up to? I have made cards, did some mending/sewing, and chalking. I am trying to stay busy and stay away from the refrigerator! Why is it so hard to stop snacking all day! I guess the trick is to stay busy. Here are a few cards I made today.

I used Beautiful Friendship stamp set by Stampin’ Up for all of my flower and leaf images. I used Butterfly wishes for sentiments additions. They pair real nice with Beautiful Friendship! I used alot of ink colors. I will list below. I used several techniques as well. Simple stamping, stamping with Stampin Write markers, and watercolor with water painter brush were most of what was done on these.

If I can help you with any supplies I used please leave a comment or email me!
