Clear & Simple Stamps + Practicing Creativity

Don't you just love encouraging people? Nicki from Clear & Simple Stamps has been super encouraging to me through my whole process of starting Practicing Creativity. It's not every day you meet people that are so willing to go out of their way to encourage you. So when the opportunity came for me to work with her, I was just thrilled.

First up, today I  have a card featured on their iPhone app. I will say that I love this card, but this is all I can show you! So if you want to see more check out their app:


I also made a card using Kind Deeds from Clear & Simple Stamps and For the Love of Dotsfrom Practicing Creativity! I loved how well these stamps worked together!

It's been awhile since I've made one of my fabric flowers, but they are still so fun. For these I made them extra small. If you'd like to learn how to make these you can watch my tutorial here. I've also made a video showing you how I made the card above!




You can also watch it over on YouTube, here.



I had so much fun working on these!
