I've just acquired (from the retiring catalogue) Stampin' Up!'s Bubble Over stamps and Bottles and Bubbles framelits. I got them because I thought they'd be useful - I hadn't realised they'd be fun!
I've used them here in response Cas(e) this Sketch's challenge #323 and Sunday Stamper's SSC205: Masculine Musings. I think making a beer card is a pretty safe bet - there'll be a bloke who needs it, somewhere!

One layer flowers

An inviting challenge from Less Is More for Challenge #394 - One Layer Buds and Petals - led me to make this card. I've decided that I need to use Very Vanilla card more, so that was my starting point. I do like this lovely flower stamp - it's more versatile than it first appears, maybe because you can vary the intensity of the flowers with different colours.

Ingredients: Stampin' Up! card in Very Vanilla, watercolour pencils in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green, Stazon black ink, Derwent Inktense watercolour pencil in Shiraz, francheville rhinestones.
