A Bit of Razzle Dazzle

Have you ever bought a stamp set on a whim? You weren't sure how you were going to use it, and you certainly didn't need it, but just had to have it? When I saw Razzle Dazzle in the Mini, it went straight onto my wishlist (and then of course I ordered it at the first opportunity!). The image that I have used on this card was the one that first caught my eye...not that I would ever buy a stamp set based on liking just one image (cough, cough!!). But isn't it great when that impulse buy turns out to be a really smart decision? And you end up loving all the stamps in the set and wondering what you ever did without them! (and can quietly pat yourself on the back for having such wisdom and the courage of your convictions)

I just love colouring this image with markers. The other day I grabbed a few scraps of my favourite papers and coloured the stamp to match them. This one is the "Sweet Always" version. Then it was really easy to whip up a batch of cards, all similar but different. I used Kraft cardstock for the base of all of them. It's a great neutral colour that goes with everything.

I'm loving buttons at the moment too. This one is a latte button, with a strip of Regal Rose "thread" (just a very narrow strip of cardstock)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
