Artful Stampers Blog Hop - A little Green




Welcome to the next stop on 
the Artful Stampers Blog Hop.

This stamp was *made* to be in a blog hop - 
and if you've come from my Facebook page, 
you'll have heard all my lame froggy puns already.  :)



This colour scheme is so right for Miss Froggy :)

Stampin' Up! is good for your well-being! :)

I am likely telling you what you already know...that having a hobby or leisure pursuit that you enjoy doing contributes to your overall wellness or feeling of well-being.


Stampin' Up! is a tool to achieving this!

It allows you to be creative, 'be in the moment', try new things, share your skills, gift to others, is an escape from your work or everyday stresses; and challenges your thinking.



There's even studies showing that allowing yourself time for creative pursuits allows you to be *more* productive in your everyday work.



So, if you need an excuse to get those fingers inky...there it is! :)

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Barrow of Flowers




Hello!

Welcome to another colourful Artful Stampers Blog Hop!

This was the 2nd card I made...the first was too 'Delightful' ;)  
(Delightful Dijon that is...it's a challenge for me to work with :) )

So I had a barrel of fun watercolouring the sweet stamps in the 'You're Sublime' stamp set.

They are so cute!

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Hello! :)



Hi there!

Welcome to another Artful Stampers Blog Hop.

It's a sketch this week...and I christened my 'Greetings Thinlits' for this one.

The papers from the 'Go Wild' paper stack didn't grab me when I first saw them - but they are *great* for male cards.



Topped off with a bit of Linen Thread
a few splats of Tip Top Taupe from 
the 'Perpetual Birthday Calendar' stamp set
