Splendid Little Dream Quotes

Good Monday Mornin' to ya : ) !!! A few more cards to show you from another set released this month by Pink Poinson/Splendid Little Stamps! This set is called Dream Quotes and it's a beauty! Inspirational quotes plus wonderful images that perfectly compliment the quotes. This first card was another I did for last week's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC190). I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock, then cut them out with my Paper Snips. Sometimes I'll have people comment about that being a really time consuming process, but it's really not. The key is having the proper scissors. Good paper scissors make cutting out, even intricate designs, a snap...seriously! I used my Sponge dauber to sponge on a bit more Pink Pirouette ink onto the flowers before adding tiny pearls to the centers. The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals.
This next card was the very first card I made, same day the stamps arrived last week : ). It was late and I was tired by the time things settled down around our place and I got the stamps trimmed and ready, but I simply couldn't resist inking 'em up...they were just calling to me!! It's a simple little card, but I like it. Sometimes simple is good. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of the flowers, just to give them a little subtle shimmer.

That's is for now. Lots more to show you this week. I can't always do this, but will probably be posting almost every day this week...so stay tuned & thanks for stopping by : ) !!!
