Gotta Love New Stamps:

Good Morning Everyone!

Once again, I apologize for not getting a chance to post yesterday; but I was busy busy having fun fun fun with my new stamps!! Oh, how I love to see the brown truck pull up in front of my house!! I made these two cards and I also made a little card stock purse, which I haven't taken a picture of yet; but I will try to a little later when the light's a bit better. The two new sets I got in my most recent order are "Sip by Sip" and "Lovely as a Tree". I know, it's hard to believe that I just got this set.
Another new thing that I got in my order was some water color crayons. This is the first time I've used these and I'll admit there is still a bit of a learning curve with those. I used them on my Sip by Sip card for the little coffee cups. I colored them with the crayons and then brushed a piece of water color paper with a little bit of water and then stamped the image. I also used some markers and the aqua painters again to get the colors the way I wanted. I will definitely be experimenting more with these. The "Happy Hellos" in the quote bubble didn't quite fit; but by then I wasn't going back to do the whole image again.

For the "Thank you" card I used versa mark and my Stampin Pastels for the tree image. Simple and easy; but I liked the elegant appearance of the card. The rest of the card was fairly straight forward.
Ok, so that's all for me right now. I will be back later with Beate's weekend sketch, color inspiration and Friday GH Chatter!
