WHEW!  Now onto the projects!  Today I'm sharing a couple cards.  Here's my first card:



This is a combo of the Main Kit (the stars), City Skyline Fancy Die + Magical Nights Messages.  


I love how the sky turned out...messy but not too messy.  I splattered white paint onto it.  The City Skyline is awesome, love the detail work, don't you?

Up next is a clean + simple card that is made exclusively with stamps from December's kit:


Although you can't really tell by my photo, the sand dunes have been quickly watercolored.  The camel has been stamped with Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow ink and die cut.  He's been popped up on foam dimensionals.  The camel silhouette images have been masked so that I only included what would 'fit' into my design.

This type of card would be a great masculine card.  

Before you go, I did want to share a project that I made especially for a Countdown to Creativity post:


Yes, it's a large contrast to today's card, isn't it?  That was the main reason I went super clean + simple for today's project.

That's it for me today...I can't wait to hop around and check out how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Janette Kausen!
