Simple Cards...

Simple?  Cards??  Can this possibly be Words and Pictures?!

Yes, I know... it's very strange altogether.  If you don't believe me, you're just going to have to hop over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog to see them with your own eyes.


Clearly the celebrations have caused me to have a funny turn - too much Butterfly Blogaversary Candy, that's the trouble.  (Do make sure you leave a comment on the candy post if you'd like to be in with a chance to win.)

Hope you like what you find when you get to The Artistic Stamper - I think it's still recognisably "me"!  Happy Crafting all!

The more simple we are, the more complete we become.

I love them both Alison, they are simply gorgeous...! The stamps and colours are very beautiful, and you have made a very clever use of different watercolouring techniques combined to a perfect stamped image inside. You can continue to do simply things like that haha :))) Hugs, Coco xxx

Wow wow you do super cards Alison, I really love the water colour effect of the stamping and the flower stamp is awesome. The kraft card goes so well with the nature of the card.

Just got to share your blog candy and comment in a bit. Hugs Kezzy xxx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

But don't pause too long, or else the zombies will catch up... they aren't so worthwhile. Off to see if there really is a simple card on the other side of that link.

Margaret said...

Both of your 'simple' cards are absolutely beautiful! The splatters and edges really take this from simple to stunning!
