Stinkin' cute!

Hey!

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the monsoon... Here at my place, we still are waiting to be blessed with rains! Feels like summer hasn't gone yet.

Coming to this post, I recently bought some Simon Says Stamp stuff and I couldn't wait to make some cards...

Here they are...

I kept them very simple to make the images take the center stage.

For my first card, I sponged some shabby shutters distress ink on the card base (4''x4'') and doodled some flowers with my white gel pen. Stamped the sentiment with Ranger Jet black Archival ink. stamped some dots from 'Best fishes' stamp set with Picked Raspberry distress ink (third generation stamping).

On a piece of watercolor card stock, I stamped the image of the adorable princess from the 'Princess' stamp set and tried my best to make her look pretty. :) I added Wink of Stella on her gown to make it shine.


The next card is pretty straight forward. Used the 'Stinkin' Cute' stamp setI just wanted to highlight the adorable image. I stamped the image on a water color paper, colored with distress inks and fussy cut it out. On the base card, I sponged some distress ink a and stuck the image. I stamped circles that are quite inconspicuous. I finished the card with the sentiments.


Submitting the first two cards to Kraft Zone challenge which is CAS cards.

As soon as I saw the fish bowl stamp in the 'Best fishes' stamp set, I knew I wanted to make a shaped card. 

I stamped the fish bowl on a scored and folded card in such a way that the upper border of the image aligns with the top fold of the card. I hand cut the shape and the base was ready.
Then using the Memory Box 'Waves' stencil, inked with tumbled glass and chipped sapphire inks very lightly





Here is how it opens (Sorry for the bad angle of the picture. It was the best I could do to show it... :))



Submitting all these cards to Simon Says stamp Wednesday Challenge I used Wink of Stella on all the cards to add sparkle.

Hope you like the cards...

See you soon!
