I decided to pack lightly when I went to my stamping cape cod retreat last weekend. Aside from all of my swaps and the supplies for my shoebox swap, I only brought some Fabriano Medioevalis folded reply cards, watercolor wonder crayons, aqua painters, the Palette Noir & Palette Burnt Umber ink pads and my bellas.
On our first night there, I borrowed Mary Jo's Bundle of Joy stamp set from the spring mini catalog and came up with these two cards. The Fabriano note cards make it so easy to make beautiful no layer cards. I simply stamped these with the Palette Burnt Umber ink pad and then water colored with my crayons. A little May Arts ribbon from Cindy Lyles store was the perfect final touch.
Now, I'll just tuck these away until my next coworker has a baby. (There's definitely something in the water at my office. We only have 65 employees, but at least 3 babies are born each year. Right now I know of one set of twins on the way.)
