Happy Sunday!

 Hi everyone,

it's Christine on this lovely sunday! (Spring shows here in Germany - I love it!). My weekends are always crafty, so I have two cards to share with you:

For the first card I created a nice, bold watercolor-background. I put some distress inks onto my crafty sheet (I used worn lipstick and mustard seed - they work so cool together, for sure one of my favorite combos for watercolor techniques), added some water with my mister and put white cardstock on it. I never use watercolor-paper, but it still works. After it dries I put it underneath a heavy box to flatten out. 
Then I used the gorgeous, brand new Diamonds stamp and white embossed it onto that bright background. I also added some shadows to the diamonds for even more dimension. The sentiment is a mix-and match of different stamps from On the corner additions. That's it - so easy, yet eyecatching!

The second card is all about nautical. I have a few paper pads with nautical papers. I picked this one because it matched a few of my DYI enamel dots very well and I badly wanted to use them. I rounded some corners and stitching lines to add some more interest to this very simple card. Hope Anchors is such an amazing combo of sentiment and image.


  1. Such wonderful cards, really lovin' the new release!

  2. I love that watercolor background of the first card!!!! It's beautiful! And the triangles are just so cool!!! I love them so much!! And your anchor card is awesome with the sunbursted cardstock
