Funky Fossil Designs - Lotus Reflections

 Hi Everyone,

I made this card with the newly released set "Lotus Reflections" from Funky Fossil Designs



I used a background from my stash made with a Gel Press plate. Stamped the stamp onto the background. Stamped the lotus flower on a piece of scrap paper. Cut it out, colored it and added it to my card. Also added some colored circles - they are also part of the stamp design. Trimmed the card. Added Washi tape at the bottom.


I hope you liked this. Happy Stamping!

Topflight Stamps - Valentine's Day

 Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
This week's theme is Valentine's Day.


I made the background with my gel plate. Made myself a stencil for the moon and used bleach to get rid of the background color - of course you could have masked it first, but this was a background from my stash......I stamped the background with Lavinia stamps and stamped the rabbits on scrap paper, colored them and cut them out. Added them to my little scene.


I didn't think this needed a sentiment, so I left it as it is.
 I hope you liked this!
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.
