Stamp Sunday

Things have gotten busy this month as I’m sure they have for everyone and I always think I can get more done than I do.  Thus, no Stamp Sunday today and I’ve decided I will be posting two more Stamp Sunday’s before the end of the year for a total of 50.  That’s really not too bad!  Maybe if I do have time I will be able to work on my yearly goal.

Stamp Sunday #48: Heartfelt Treasures

C1456 Heartfelt Treasures

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart:  C1456 Heartfelt Treasures stamp set, White Daisy Cardstock, Bronze Glitter Glitz Gel, Boutique Assortment, and inks (Cotton Candy, Pear, Honey, Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, and Topiary).

I was very pleased with how these cards turned out.  I have not had much time to scrap at all lately and I had this in my head for quite some time before I actually got around to doing it.  It’s nice when things come together like you plan them.  Two cards that are the same but totally different.  The same pattern and stamp set, just different ink colors and embellishing.  Which one is your favorite?
