I'm guessing you hopped here from the lovely Melissa's Blog. Don't worry if you didn't, you can't get lost. You'll find a complete list of the all the Blogs to visit at the end of this post including a link back to the start.
OK .... so here's what I've been up to.
Let's start with the Fun Birthday Sentiments. Lots of Birthday greetings in a mix of fabulous fonts.
Why not use them all .... or some of them anyway .......
I've used a mix of them here, stamped with different coloured inks to create a fun topper for a really quick and easy Birthday card
Add a few sequins and a bit of sparkly thread and you're done
I added one of the stamps from Bold Birthday Sentiments (from the first stamp release) to finish off the front
and used the same set to decorate the inside ........
You don't have to use them all at once though ...... usually just one is enough. I love this pretty font ..... perfect to add the finishing touch
This was so easy .... the background was created using an acrylic block to stamp with ..... just apply coloured inks directly to the block, spritz with water and then stamp .... love the sort of watercolour effect that you get
Add a pretty die cut ....... I splashed a few dots of white acrylic paint onto the background too
and one of those fab sentiments ...... and you're done!
Next up ..... Thinking of You (my favourite!) I love this set, the fonts are beautiful, the little butterflies are so sweet, the fancy script is perfect for creating backgrounds and there's also a couple of decorative images on there too.
Keep things clean and simple ...... a nice inky panel across the card and I used the pretty script to add a bit more interest
I made a simple tag using the same colours as the background ...... how beautiful is that font!
And finished off with the butterflies .....
A few ink splashes here and there .......
And I couldn't leave the inside blank now could I .....
A more elegant design now ..... a simple script panel, inked with a touch of Distress (Antique Linen) and edged with a gold pen
One of the beautiful sentiments .......
and a little decorative touch top and bottom of the script (these would look great embossed too, in a nice rich gold perhaps)
For a splash of colour I added the butterflies ..... stamped directly onto the card and then stamped again onto a piece of coloured card, cut out and overlaid ........ so pretty and delicate
Great on the inside too ......
Finally ....... I'm going a little festive ....... well the stamps do cover all occasions.
A nice CAS design using the Everyday Sentiments ........ love the large words in this set!
I simply stamped a few pretty snowflakes and added a touch of sparkle
Stamped a festive greeting using the Everyday Sentiments ....... you can put together loads of different sentiments depending on the occasion ......
They're great for both the front of your cards ...... and on the inside too
Phew!!! That was a long one ..... are you still with me? I do hope you enjoyed your visit and that you're feeling inspired!
