Melon, Cantaloupe, & Tangerine cards

I am on the road to recovery from bronchitis so there will be some new posts now - finally!

I seem to be gravitating toward melon, cantaloupe, and tangerine on my cards, the colors feel fresh and spring-like. At least it will look like spring on my blog even if it doesn't look like spring outside yet.

The above card was made with the Peaceful Petals, Secret Garden, & See Ya Later stamp sets. I really love the way water-coloring looks and have been trying to get the hang of it.

Along with adding envelope liners to make my cards special I have been including a stamped shape to carry the design inside the card. 

It's difficult to get the Shimmery White paper to show up on a photo, but it adds a pretty shine to any project. It's the same shimmer on both sides too which is nice.

This final card is clean & simple: two strips of washi tape, a stamp, a button, and some twine. It's a fun design for those times when you need to make a card in a hurry.

Thanks for stopping by!
