Simple & Sweet!

“You Are The Sweetest” is just one of the sayings that is included in the Fruit Basket Bundle. This fun bundle has 4 punches that coordinate with the  pear, watermelon, strawberry and pineapple stamp images, add the Tutti-frutti paper stack, washi tape, sequinslemon lime twist ribbon and you will be set to create cards, treats and scrapbook pages.

Oh Happy Day!

It’s #mailacardmonday….  for today’s card I  pull out a favorite stamp set of mine from our Annual Catalog, Happiest of Days. I love the whimsical style of the design, the different sayings and that I can use my New Stampin’ Blends to color the images.

Happiest of Days #143796

  • Basic black – 2 at 4″ X 5 1/4″ (1 for inside)

  • With Memento ink stamp a border of flowers along the bottom of the whisper white, stamp the “oh happy day” about an inch above starting with the one in the center.
  • Add a strip of washi tape above the flowers, using the basic black marker I spattered flecks above the words.
  • Color in the leaves using the lighter Old Olive Stampin’ Blend first then shade with the darker Old Olive Stampin’ Blend marker. Repeat for the flowers but use the light & dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends markers.

#mailacardmonday…..you may be thinking what is this? I love creating cards and teaching others how to create them too 🙂 but I was slacking in mailing cards. So when my friend Monika Davis started #mailacardmonday on January 1, 2018 I decided to join her.  It has motivated me to not only create and share my cards but to also send them.

On Mondays I will be sharing one of the cards I will be mailing someone for #mailacardmonday. I would love for you to join in and send out your own cards on Mondays, I know it will brighten someones day!
