For my first card today I used the Say it with Love stamp set to create the fun pattern using Midnight, Samba and It's a Girl inks. I inked some premium white card stock using Samba ink cut thin strips and adhered above and below the pattern I created. For more interest I added few Inspiration Point sequins.

For my second card I used Peaceful Snowflakes set. I created a grid using compass and pencil on my white card stock panel and stamped the snowflakes and dots using that grid and Twilight, Skylight and Juniper Mist inks. Then stamped the sentiment in the center. I trimmed the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4". I made custom colored card base by swiping Juniper Mist ink pad on the edges of a top folded white note card and adhered my stamped panel. I added some Nuvo Drops for added interest.
