Sweet Stamp Shop July Release

Hey there, my bloggy friends!
I've been on vacation with my Wisconsin family, but I'm back, just in time for the Sweet Stamp Shop July Release party! Nicole sent me two sets to work with, Dia de los Muertos and Starts Here.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about making your own project life-type journaling and title cards. I couldn't resist making a few more with the new Starts Here set:
Recognize any other Sweet stamps up there? I used typography from Spin Me and Today Was, along with the new set!

Dia de los Muertos is such a unique stamp set! If you've never heard of it, Dia de los Muertos is a Latin American holiday that takes place the day after Halloween. The images work great for Halloween, too! I made these tags that I can use on treat bags for my nieces and nephew. I just stamped and masked the images, then colored with some Peerless watercolor papers and my water brush.

I am completely in love with Nicole's rose images! So I created a black and white background by repeatedly stamping this rose. And pulled out those watercolors again to color some in pink.
 The "Love You" sentiment is from Wheely Like You.

Finally, I have a card that I made when I saw the inspiration photo for Pinspired Challenge #14.
Here's the inspiration photo:

And here's my card, using the solid roses this time, with peach and orange ink and some washi tape.
