2 cards and a journal

Hello SNSS friends... happy Tuesday!
Today I have a couple of completely different projects to share!  First I have a card I recently made using my Snowman Soup stamp set (It now has matching dies!). 
I wanted to create a “hot cocoa” background…boy was that a challenge!  lol.  But I liked how it turned out. I just "smooshed" ink onto a craft mat, spritzed with water, and laid my cardstock on top.  My snowy guy was colored with Copics and popped up.  I masked off the word “you” in my sentiment and replaced it with a big diecut word.  Then I stamped a few extra marshmallows to float in my chocolately background.

My next card is for an anniversary and I used my Prim Blessings stamp set which ALSO has new matching dies

And last I have a super quick journal I decorated.  I used the Sweet 'n Sassy sets called Wildflowers and His Peace.

This was reaaallly a quick project...I had about 20 minutes to make it.  LOL.  I started with a pre-purchased journal and picked out the sentiment I wanted to use.  Then I found a pretty flower image to stamp as a background.  I snapped a quick pic and sent it on it's way.  Later I realized that I forgot to add some pearls or bling!  ugh.  I hope the recipient likes it anyway!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Your hot cocoa background is absolutely inspired! It really does look like swirly, foamy hot chocolate. How cute! And the little marshmallows on top are the perfect accent!
