Ta-Da! Here is the first card! It’s SO SO ADORABLE images. I love an image that a bear & hedgehog and a baby are looking up at the sky.  When I saw these images I immediately had an idea of this look/layout and the card turned out exactly what I thought.

This card making process is really simple. I stamped a bear holding a hedgehog image from the #30-646 starlight stamp set on the watercolor paper. After that, I stamped a baby image from #30-647 sweet sledder stamp set another watercolor paper. And then I cut the baby image with scissors. Next, I colored them with watercolor paints. I adhered the baby image to the panel and trim it off unnecessary part. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from #30-648 holy season stamp set.

Here is my last card for today! I love the color contrast of black and orange. By the way, orange is one of my favorite colors! It’s easy to make and the process is simple. I love a simple & easy process for making cards. I wanted everyone to make cards without struggling and stressful.

  1. To make a window with an orange background, first, I used #51-588 cozy nights cut with black cardstock to make a window.
  2. I stamped stars from #30-646 starlight stamp set  and a sentiment from #30-649 frosty hello using white pigment ink. Set aside.
  3. I stamped bear & hedgehog image from #30-643 cuppa stamp set on the A2 sized white cardstock. (before stamping the image, make sure the image should be the centre of the window area. )
  4. I colored the background with an orange marker.
  5. I stamped a sentiment “warm winter wishes” from #30-636 cozy cuteness stamp set.
  6. I wanted to add something else so I used an image from #30-645 delightful dachshund on some white cardstock and fussy cut it.
