Favorites of 2015 Part 2

Continuing with yesterday's post, here are the second half of my favorites from last year.  :)  

I don't like swimming or boating, but I love nautical stamps for some reason.   I think it's because they work so well with red and blue   Those are two of my favorite colors and I enjoy working with them.   This was made with one of the Simon Says Stamp card kits that I was getting for a while.  I keep thinking about subscribing again, but I have so much to use up as it is.

Two from August.   I made this pretty sewing card for my mom of course.  I love the designer paper; it's from a pack that Jason got me for Christmas in 2014.   I paired with blacks of the cards with a favorite color, Coastal Cabana!
Play with distress inks again here.  I love the look of the space backgrounds and this was my first attempt at one.  I love  how it turned out!   I need more star themed stamps so I can make them more often.  :)

This is one of those "embracing the white space" cards for sure.  :)   Again, Coastal Cabana and black accompany the white.   I just love those two colors together!

October is my big stamping month, so I have three cards that were favorites.   The first is this gorgeous card that took me days and days to make.  I still can't believe in all those circles!   The result was totally worth it though.
Sunshine stamps are a favorite thing of mine and I love using them for my HYCCT cards.   I love this card and several others did as well.   It just makes me happy to look at and was one of my favorite cards from the challenges.
I discovered a new digital stamp company during HYCCT and this sweet little snowgirl is from them.  I think this is one of my most favorite cards that I've ever made.   I love the way the coloring turned out and the design just makes the image pop!  

 More white space!  I was gifted this lovely poinsettia set from a friend last year and this was my first time using it.  It was fun to color and I love the result of the extra stamping/layering.  
Stencils are always fun to use and I love the background my hexagon stencil helped me make on this card.   It's such a fun backdrop for the beehive.   

And finally, December.  I had two favorites even though I didn't get a lot of stamping in.   The sweet owl card I made for Jason just makes me happy.   
I love polar bears, so this card just had to make the favorites.   The fact that it uses Coastal Cabana helped a bit in making it a favorite too.  lol 

I hope you enjoyed a look back and I look forward to sharing another year of creativity and inspiration with you.
