Pocket cards

Two cards to show you today. These are darling pocket cards. I used a set called "Blooming with Love" from Stampin up. The images were stamped onto watercolor paper and colored in with a aqua painter.

Happy Stamping!

a hidden message

This is a new look for a card. It has a hinge (brad) top to slide up and show a secret message. I used watercolor paper which I stamped on and painted in the image with an aqua painter.

Happy Stamping!

A Tree with some shading

The card today was stamped using the "Branching Out" stamp set from Stampin up.

I guess you can see I could not decide if I wanted a complete circle or not. I sponged in the shading with a sponge after I embossed the tree image. It is hard to see in picture but I used a window sheet to transfer a shadow of the tree in the water.

Happy Stamping!
