And now...on to the projects! It's amazing what inspires us sometimes, isn't it? As a stamper and crafter I feel like my brain is always working...and anything can be inspiring...color, design, home decor, fashion...and food! Like this...
a special "cold treat" I made for our grandsons! Timothy...nearly seven now...loves his cold treats...and anything with sprinkles...and this is one my favorite Everyday Extraordinary tricks. Ice cream sandwiches...with sprinkles! This one got me an extra hug from my favorite little guys...and it inspired this project, too! Bonus!
I actually tried a bit of water coloring...for the first time. I know! Water coloring is incredibly popular...and it's everywhere...and I'm always uber impressed with people with mad water coloring skills. I don't have them. But...I had to try...because I wanted this to have the soft, sweet look of ice cream. And I think it worked! Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies + Water Coloring = Perfection!
So...I had to try it again...this time with lots of color and a bit of Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder...
and a sweet chocolate treat! These little leaves...the stamp from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and the die from the Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies...are amazing! They're absolutely classic and timeless in design...but pair them with a bit of unique color and they're also fresh and fun!
Together...a card and a chocolate treat. I don't know about you, but it makes me smile!
And...I couldn't resist...a look at my first water coloring projects...together!
Steffi...and I just know that Susan has something wonderful to share, too!
