Water colored thanks!

Hi There!

The 2 cards I have to share today look quite different than what you usually see here on my blog...I do believe you have to stay true to your style, but I also believe in trying new things, and every now and again step outside your comfort zone!

So here goes!






Stamps from a Sizzix stamp and die set.

I am sharing my cards here :

Less is more  ~ one layer with 2 of something on it

Simon says stamp  ~ water colors

CAS on Sunday  ~ Emboss it (heat embossing)

Crazy for CAS ~ one layer stamped card


Thanks so much for looking!

Hannelie...this is incredible! I am actually working with the exact same stamp/die set as I type this comment! Now how cool is that?

Stunning simplicity! That step outside your comfort zone - well worth it! Gorgeous result!

Vrou, vrou, vrou, dit is verskriklik mooi!!! So pragtig stylvol en elegant!!!! Daai blommetjies is ongelooflik mooi en die sentiment is pragtig daarby!!! Mal daaroor dat jy die sentiment so op die verf emboss het!! Ek probeer besluit watter een ek die meeste van hou, maar dis onmoontlik om te kies!!! Hierdie is vir seker wenners, vrou!!! Pragtig!!!

Groete!
