This month I decided to focus on items from the NEW Occasions catalog! I love the fresh, new, and younger feel of the items in this catalog! Its perfect for people in my age group!  I chose to work with the Happy Watercolor stamp set.  The thing that drew me to this set is the poppy flower which reminded me of my dad whom I called Poppy.  Since my actual watercolors skills are not very good, I love the way this set has a stamp that looks like you water colored already!


I love this stamp set! I used Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding inks and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and coordinating framelits. This would be a great Valentines day card for a friend or another special person in your life!

Supplies used:
Ink: Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding
Paper: Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White

  8. I don't have these stamps yet, and I don't normally like the look of watercolor, but the simple layout of this card is awesome and I may just end up getting it for my stamp a stack coming up! Wonderful!
