 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Holiday Tag"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Nature's Brushstrokes"

This scene was stamped in watercolor paper and an aqua painter and reinkers were used to paint it. I used one layer of UTEE as I love the wet look.

I am behind in my crafting. I had so much fun getting inky and sticky fingers! I stamped in stazon on water color paper and used water color crayons to paint the image. Added some glitter to the center of the flower and then I did cracked glass on the image panel. On the sentiment, I did 2 layers of UTEE. An MFP stick pin and some beads on the end. Also some ribbon to finish it off. I used BG's Marrakech dp.


  1. Both of your cards are gorgeous! Beautiful colors on both! Fun use of the UTEE on both! I love the wet looks you create! They are both gorgeous!

  2. Great job with this set -- lots of work. I love the coloring on both.

  3. I love the distressed look of the first card.

  4. I love that MFP has added this Oriental line of stamps. They are sure to become classics! UTEE! I need to get mine out.

    Thanks for sharing your talents!
