Plumeria Card Set!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Hope you've had a great start to your week!  I am sad as it was the start of school today and Christmas holidays are over!  I enjoyed every moment with my kids!  We had so much fun!  I think this was one of our best Christmas Holidays, no one was sick and it was relaxing and fun!  :>

Today I wanted to pop in and share a card set that I made before Christmas for Ariel's teacher! 


When I made the card sets for the teachers I tried to make sets that were fast to make.  I know looking at this flower trio you are thinking well that couldn't have been fast!  BUT I figured out a way to make it fast!  While I usually painstakingly (loving every moment) hand paint with inks and water each petal since I had to do four I instead painted each whole flower with a bigger brush quickly let it dry (it seemed to dry as I painted all four than went to the other color and so on) than carefully with darker ink (less water same ink) painted a few petals!  So much faster and easier and it still turned out with that look I wanted!  I used the Plumeria collection (stamps by Hero Arts and papers by Basic Grey) for these cards!

Well that's it from me today!  Hope you have a fabulous week!

I got a set of cards from a student's mother two years ago and I thought it was the best gift. The only bad thing is that they are all gone now!! ;)
