Happy Cinco de Mayo! I desperately wanted tacos and margaritas today but didn’t have any ingredients, so instead I made some cards. I lean towards minimalism with design, so the single layer cards have been helping me get out of my creative rut.

Margaritas CardsThese vintage A Muse stamps were all heat embossed with gold and then I used Wink of Stella brush pens to colour them. If you don’t own all of these colours – RUN to The Paperie (or your nearest local stamp store) and buy these. All of them. I even purchased an extra blue Wink of Stella and added a few drops of light green to create TEAL.

I made two more floral cards today (why not?) …

Mother's Day Cards

The flower (Memory Box) on the first card was die-cut twice, once with watercolor paper and again with black paper. I painted the first flower all pink and then paper pieced the petals back into the black outline. The second card has just the pink watercolor outline.

I’ll be back very soon with more to share – if there’s anything you would like to see, just leave a comment 🙂
