Today I’m sharing a card I made using the Homemade Kindness stamp set, which has cozy, sweet images from an old fashioned kitchen. I stamped the images in black Stazon ink onto watercolor paper, then used an Aqua Painter to watercolor the images. I used the embossing die from the Pretty Park Framelits Dies to emboss – or actually deboss – the stones on the kitchen floor, and I cut the sentiment using the Lakeside Framelits Dies.


Here’s what I made:
