Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here, just popping in with a very quick card share and a reminder that it’s OK to keep your projects simple! This easy card is simply layers of paper below my stamped and watercoloured image! I love how it turned out!I’ve been working at mixing my old stash with newer stash these days, it feels good pulling it out from far away corners of my craft room. This Stampin’ Up stamp is a favourite oldie for work birthdays! I paired it Wild Whisper cardstock and coloured my stamped image with Tonic Studios’ Nuvo Water-colour Pencils. Easy-peasy and ready for “the herd” to sign! Hope this inspires a quick and easy card making session! For amazing inspiration…subscribe to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine!

Kim here with a quick card share! This fun anniversary card came together pretty quick. My background is from a gel print I made last year. I often pull out my Ranger Gel Printing Plate and Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint and just play. These prints most often become backgrounds for cards, and it’s always great to have them on hand.On top of a black cardstock base, I layered up a piece of ephemera that I had on hand, then stamped some asemic writing [Paper Artsy stamp]  with some Distress Oxide  Ink. I found what I felt was the perfect couple from my Tim Holtz Paper Dolls collection and adhered it with Tonic Studios Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive [current FAV!!!!]. I quickly added soft colour to the bride’s flowers with my Tonic Studios Nuvo Alcohol Markers, they worked perfectly on the shiny surface of the paper dolls. I stained some…
