Feature products #1: Wildflower Doodles Stamp Set and Happy Birthday to You

I started out with stamping the background with Wildflower Doodles Stamp Set.

To create a misty background,  I used the Artist Markers and sprayed the ink mist to the white card stock with the Air Brush.

If you love free style stamping, this is definitely a must-have!

Feature products #2: Fabulous Floret Stamp & Die Bundle and A Love for Stripes Set A (6x6 Paper Pack)

Fabulous Floret Stamp & Die Bundle has beautiful outlines and layering image. I stamped the outline stamps with A Love for Stripes Set A (6x6 Paper Pack). I fussy cut the image and arranged them into the rectagle card stock.

I trimmed off the excess and attached the white-embossed sentiment with foam.

Feature products #3: Spheres and Spirals Stamp Set and Happy Birthday to You

The Spheres and Spirals Stamp Set comes with some really modern and fine outlines. I used the hexagon and stamped the entire background.

The sentiment from Happy Birthday to You is bold and striking. It is is worth getting  the stamp set just for for the sentiment!

 I created a special embellishment with Navy Gold Trim Washi Tape,
 To create a bow, I adhered the Washi tape to paper and folded the both ends of the strips to the middle and topped it off with the enamel dot. Tre chic!

The music notes and background from this stamp set are outstanding. I have a few more creations with Happy Birthday to You. Be sure to watch out for my upcoming post!

Feature products #4: Line Art Stamp Set
Altenew-Line ArtStamp Set-Virginia#1

What can I say? The deep etched lines in this stamp set can make a difference to any whimsical designs that you can dream up.

To compliment the background, I applied ink all over the On Point Stencil.

Your cards are beautiful. I love the colors and how you showcased some of the new products. Your first flower set in the pinks is my favorite and I will be trying that technique for sure.

So, I had to stop and see how you did that Happy Birthday sentiment. See that you stamped the shadow first then went back and did the black letters. Love the look. Thanks for crafting for me today. Was fun to see what you did and I picked up a couple of things. Nice and safe also! Take care. Come back anytime~
