For today’s blog hop I created two simple, one-layer cards. The first one is made using a set called Tea Time and I love these fun, hand-drawn images. I stamped them with black ink on the bottom of my card and used Altenew Artist Markers to colour some of the images in.

To finish the card, I combined two sentiments from the set and stamped them in black.

My second card is even more simple than the first one. I started by stamping the sentiments from Family Matters Stamp set with black ink. Then I added a small floral image from a beautiful set called Garden Treasure.

I again used the Altenew Artist Markers to do a very simple colouring.

Once dry and set I used stamps from the Remember This stamp set and coordinating dies to embellish my card.

To create my second card I used another great stencil called Floral Drape. This time I used Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Lagoon, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Dusk to create my background. First I applied the inks with a sponge dauber and then I spritzed the stencil with Frayed Leaf metallic shimmer ink spray for some lovely sparkle.

For my sentiment I used black, bold “hi” created with the Bold Alphabet die set.
