Hello and welcome to my blog! I want to show you the fun cards I designed using Simon Says Stamp’s May card kit–it is a beauty! I love the floral stamp set included called Delicate Flowers and the Moda Scrap pattern papers–these were my favorite items in the kit. In designing these cards I was all over the map; I used a lot of my favorite techniques to create them. (Also, the lilac and tulip you see in these pictures are fresh from my garden! I’m loving the spring weather! Now, if it would just stop raining. Lol!)
I hope these designs inspire you to try out some of these super fun techniques!
