It's All In The Details!

Hello friends!

March 2018 Stamp & Die Bundle

Honestly, there is just not enough time for me to PLAY with stamps these days.
I am not sure if you know, but I have been spending more time in running the Altenew Educator Certification Program since I started as a coordinator last November.  I am either e-mailing, marking the participants' entries or selecting participant and running survey ....etc.  Overall, it is keeping me out of trouble and people in the program seem to enjoy themselves!

 BUT I find it more challenging to have time to CREATE!
Yup, I know, first world problem... 😀

Anyhow, I want to share another card from this March release. 

Hope Stamp & Die Bundle
Hope Stamp & Die Bundle
(shop Simon Says Stamp here)

 This is one of those easy-to-line up stamp sets. The die set comes with the word "hope"!
It's such a lovely font!  This card is nearly one-layer! 

Special feature about this card: 
~add a strip of glitter to the sentiment
~use the classy stripe Stencil in two-tone subtle background
~don't be afraid to mix colors (for the petal, I mixed pink and coral together)
~cover up the main image when adding splatter. It may look messy, but it is contained.

Morning Virginia, Boy do I know what you mean about finding time to stamp, I haven't even finished my Easter cards. This card I really would call STUNNING, that was my first thought, it is a wow card, just so lovely, I really love the glitter on it, just makes the whole card pop. Awesome post. I have shopping at SSS and Spellbinders to do today, so I am going to do it now while I am on your site so I don't forget to come back here. Thanks.

This is gorgeous Virginia, I love making one layer cards but sometimes it's hard to do. Haha
Thanks for all of the tips, very helpful.

You did it again...made this stamp set come alive with your colors and sweet embellishing. That flower is amazing as is the beautiful sentiment.
