For my first card I used the smaller stamp "Sun and Moon" set. I love how MFP combine these to images together. And its such a beautiful and fun whimsical set. So my first thought was to water color my images. I later found this water color paper I created but didn't use and thought how perfect it would be. I add a mat in black around the image and sentiment so they would stand out. I love that sentiment and will either stamp graduation or birthday theme in the inside. 


For my next two card I used papers by Graphic 45. The first card I really wanted to use a lot of the scraps that was left over in this pack and thought it would be perfect to help bring out all the colors in my sun. And boy was I right (not to toot my own horn lol) I love how well the colors worked together. 


Up next I really wanted to feature this cream and black pattern papers so I used it over the base of my card. I cut strips of the star paper and used the back side to which has nursery rhymes on it. I add some lace for a more elegant look and gems to set the lace off. Over all I love the look and can't say which is my fav. 



We truly thank you all for hopping along with us this week. We hope you found lots of inspiration and want to create with these sets!!!
