Up first is my HOT card. What's nicer (and warmer) than a nice super day spent at a picnic with a friend? That's what imagined when I saw this wonderful Penny Black Hedgehog Birthday Slapstick Stamp. The stamp is already mounted on cling mount and ready to be inked for your crafting pleasure!
All the gorgeous papers are from my new favorite paper pad: the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness 6x6 Paper Pad. I know, I know, I fall in love with every paper pad, but hey, just look at these gorgeous papers! The image was colored with Distress Reinkers using the Small Koi Water Brush and the background was colored with Dove Blender Pen with chalks. The butterflies were handmade and you can find my tutorial on how to make them HERE. The cake was topped off with Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Holo Iridescent.

Up next is my COLD card. We were getting pounded with rain here in Southern California all last month, which was absolutely awesome for me. I love the rain - I would never be using the umbrella like the cutie you see in this image :) Enough of my babble.
On this really simple card, I used the Crafter's Companion S.W.A.L.K. After the Rain rubber stamp, which is also colored with Distress Reinkers using the Small Koi Water Brush. I used the Waterfall Stickles to add a bit of glitter to the card. The DP is from the BasicGrey Marjolaine 6x6 Paper Pad, which I am fast running out of. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Snippets Set 1, which was one of the first sets I designed for Whimsy :)
This card is for the challenges at Annabelle Stamps - Sketch + Bling and Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes.
