My inspiration came from (many but this one in particular!) this beautiful simple and striking repeat stamping card!

Paula showcases time and time again gorgeous projects that are easily achieved by any stamper of any level. I love lots of layers and complicated, intricate designs - but this time I was happy to just stamp and KISS (keep it super simple!) muac muac muac
Melbourne, lately has been a spread of cold, wet, sunny and rain - loooots of rain which means lots of puddles! My boys have enjoyed jumping and sploshing around and I was inspired by the joyful memory of them slashing around to create this GUMBOOT card. Super easy - simply stamp and stamp and stamp!
