Yesterday marked the beginning of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog! On of the new hostess sets that you can earn is Because I Care. I have had so much fun creating with this stamp set already but these are my favorite cards I have done with it.
I really love this color combination and have made many cards with it already. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Basic Black. I already need to get more Cherry Cobbler, I never thought I would go through this much red when it is not Christmas or Valentines Day. The card idea was cased from Tina Dyck I only slightly tweaked it. I have made two slightly different versions.
Both flowers were water-colored using aquapainters on shimmery white cardstock, on the second flower I added white gel pen highlights to the centers of the blossoms. I like the water-coloring job on the first card better but I like what the gel pen adds.
