Good morning!
I'm making a lot of tall, slimmer cards at the moment, and really enjoying the format. It helps that there are more tall, slim stamps available 😁 and just tall stamps in general. I'll have to make a tall, slim journal, I think...

I love these Studio Light images, so easy to use and so much fun to make. This is another of those that the scanner doesn't pick up colour on. It seems to struggle to differentiate between blue/turquoise/green and it can be VERY frustrating...😖 I made these a little wider, just to give more room to add background images and a bit of doodling. I've been playing a lot with blues and greens, such refreshing colours.


This one's an old Paperartsy stamp I often pull out to play with.

And, for a change, some flowers on another of my Ecoline backgrounds... I did add lots of Prisma and other bits of colour, though and more b/g stamping.

i've never seen that Studio Light seaside image and it is quite beautiful. Of course so is your card too. It is fun to change up shapes. I like the long slender images and those light flowers really pop on that card. It is fun to see different tings and get inspired. A long tal journal would be fun. Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika

Wonderful long slim cards Cath but I think it is your skill with backgrounds that makes them so beautiful.
I too love the combo of greens and blues and so your first card particularly appeals to me but what a wonderful image it is anyhow. Studio Light are certainly bringing some gorgeous stamps out.
Lovely floral cards too, and I think your Ecoline ones always look particularly lovely with the backgrounds you use.
Hugs, Neet xx

I just love that top card Cath, it's a fabulous stamp and the colours are beautiful. I like the second card too and it has reminded me I have that stamp somewhere, it's ideal for the slim line cards
