Nothing But Time

Wouldn't it be nice to have nothing but time to do whatever we want? Time can be a good thing. I really like having time to do the things I want. I've enjoyed having the time to work on these cards. It's the first time I've used this stamp set, and it's been fun to play with. It's kind of fun seeing how just changing the colors, can change the mood of the card.

Watercolor Field Flowers

I had fun making this set of five cards on Christmas morning. (The husband was working and the daughter hadn't arrived yet.) The perfect opportunity to play and not feel guilty. See all those flowers, stems and leaves? They were all cut with the Silhouette. My color choices came from the colors used in the Watercolor Wonder DSP. Aren't they a beautiful combination?

Along with the Watercolor Wonder DSP, I used:
Stamps - Field Flowers, Upsy Daisy
Paper - Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango
Punches - Decorative Label, Lace Ribbon, Modern Label, Word Window
Embossing Folders - Perfect Polka Dots, Square Lattice

Eleanor Everywhere

More fun with my Silhouette! Again, they all look very similar, but there are subtle differences. You can't really tell from the pictures, but one flower on each of the cards is raised up using dimensionals.
