New Sentiment Set


This weekend I got a little time to put some ink to paper.  I can't say it came easily to me, after taking a bit of a break from stamping I'm trying to make my comeback.

I had some new releases to work with and this was one I knew needed to be used immediately.  I love the fancy script letters on the formalwords2stamp set from The {Stamps} of Life

Make sure you head on over to the gallery and checking out all the fantastic creations from the team using this set.


For my first card I wanted to do a little embossing with my sentiment and used a combination of a sketch to give it a bit of an envelope look.

This card uses the Love2hug set as well which I stamped directly on the patterned paper.

My next card I also did some embossing on the sentiment, with a clear embossing powder and wanted to create my own background with the back2basics set.

I used the OWH#193 sketch for this card adding some pink sorbet twine and Kaiser Craft Crimson sparklets.

I kept my last card pretty clean and simple using the floral image as my focal point.  I paper pieced the flower and colored the leaves with a copic marker.
