Floral Cards

You Make Me Smile

It's been a few months since I've posted anything on my blog.  I had this crazy idea that I was going to purge my craft room and then I was going to do the same to all the rooms in my house. Well, my project started out gangbusters but petered out just as quickly. I also told myself I couldn't craft until it was finished. Ha! 

If I had time to just work on my purging project without interruptions I probably would have finished it by now. Too many things get in the way and I've found I only have time to work on it in chunks. I don't get much done during the week. I'm just too exhausted when I get home from work and going through things is the last thing that I want to do! 

So, I just decided enough is enough and I miss crafting. It's my therapy and helps keep me sane. I'm just going to craft and slowly work on my project in between craft projects. Someday I'll get it finished. 

For my card projects, I watercolored some flowers last night and let them dry naturally until I could die cut them tonight when I got home from work. I used distress oxide inks and Zig clean color brush markers for my color. The stamp and die set is one of my favorites from Gina K called Painted Autumn. I just love this set! I did some stenciling for the backgrounds. The stenciling on the card below is very subtle and on the card above the stenciling stands out more. I'll list the product names below. 

I'm not sure where the stencil for the card below comes from, but I think it's from Stampin' Up. I didn't pay attention to the names of the ink colors I used, I just played around until I found three colors for each card that I liked together.
