This card uses the elements from Theresa's set (The Wetlands)

I love the masculine images from the set - Of course I used them to make some Father's Day cards! I kept them both Clean & Simple so that the image is the focal point! I used a watercolor brush with some chalks for this card! A few embossed lines under the sentiment really keeps with the clean design of the card!  




The images would also make great masculine birthday or thank you notes! Don't you think!  Again - chalked watercolored images with the Dad sentiment.  I emboss framed the main image!

CAS Monday: Many Thanks sunset





Another CAS Monday and another thank you note.  I had to make a TON of thank you notes the other day!  Making them with a watercolor wash is super easy, plus you can add just about any sentiment.  This  watercolor base pre folded card is perfect for those quick thank you notes. It is a wash of yellows and oranges, with a few sequins and a black ink sentiment from Lots of Lines. Drying time took a bit of time, so this wasn't a super quick card. But you can easily mass produce this card if you have the pre-folded cards and the patience to watercolor several at a time!

CAS Monday: Triple Rainbow thanks







Thanks for stopping by for another Clean & Simple Monday.  I created this rainbow thank you card with my Lots of Thanks stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment three times in black ink after creating the rainbow wash on watercolor paper. I love the way this card turned out!

And if you are a fan of clean and simple cards - subscribe to the blog or check back each Monday morning for a clean and simple card using Gina k. supplies!

I had to make some sympathy cards, which is not my favorite thing to do - but with the clean sentiment and the beautiful flowers, it was super easy.  I love popping out the flowers, with and without the frame. 
This first one with an ivory base uses moonlit fog and bubblegum inks. I used a little light pink spectrum noir marker on the edge to give it some additional color. I layered the flowers and topped them with a pink gem. 

 



This card uses sweet corn base and ink.  I popped the center circle up and used moonlit fog ink for the sentiment. The rose was stamped with sweet corn ink on die cut white paper. The honey mustard was used for the second step in the two-step rose. I then went over the darker ink with a yellow sakura pen to give it some shimmer. The leaves stamped on white in moonlit fog ink.

CAS Monday - Mother's Day





Thanks for checking back in for another Clean & Simple Monday.  Today - I am sharing a card which I created for Mother's Day with the beautiful new Gina K Stamp TV kit.  


I used white ink on yellow card stock - the sentiment is done in black ink!  This was a 30 second card!  Took longer than that to clean the stamps!

Later this week, I will be sharing more cards created with the Gina K. Stamp TV kit

CAS Monday: Tulip Thanks


Welcome to another CAS Monday! 





Another Monday, another watercolored thank you card. I had a stack of cards to make for everyone involved in the elementary school production of Annie, Jr. It was so fun to watch and I was in charge of creating gifts for the directors/helpers. Each person got a handmade card and each was slightly different. This card was done on a watercolor base. I stamped the flower from Theresa's Elegant Florals 2. I watercolored everything with a watercolor brush and then stamped the sentiment in black (Lots of Lines).
