For today’s blog hop I’ve created two cards to share with you. For my first card, I combined a new great December to Remember Stamp Set, which contains some sweet and timeless messages, with two different sets: Garden Treasure and Happy Holidays.

First I stamped my sentiment and a floral design using two different shades of blue: Dusk and Desert Night. Then I added little elements from the Happy Holidays stamp set.

To create my second card I used a great stamp set to commemorate the year 2018, it would make the perfect addition for any scrapbook layouts, journals and New Year's cards!

2018

I started by stamping it in the centre of my card, and then I created my background using a floral image from the Charmed Stamp Set. To finish my card I used markers to colour in the numbers and added some black ink splatters.

That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Virginia Lu and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.
