Rainbow clouds

Hey everyone

Todays card is to cheer you up.  It’s grey and drizzly here in N.E Scotland today (even tho its summer) and so I thought a rainbow of colours was appropriate.

I used two Simon Says Stamp Love makes a home cloud dies to create my own stencil and then used clarity brushes and distress inks to create my background.

I trimmed it down and added to a minty cardbase. I stamped the SSS Happy Days kite with distress inks again in a rainbow assortment and fussy cut it out.  I then adhered everything together with some foam tape and a dash of clear wink of Stella.

Coffee OCD

Clearly besotted

Hey everyone

The sentiment in today’s card really speaks to me – These days Inlive for my coffee.  Do you have OCD? Obsessive Coffee Disorder?

It’s the current Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and nothing says summer more to me than the gorgeous Lawn Fawn plaid paper used on today’s card. I paired the paper with a lovely scallop rectangle die by Winnie and Walter Audrey’s cutaway set along with clearly besotted (retired) coffee stamp set.
