First, I took the Scribbles Background stamp and inked it up with a rainbow selection of Distress Inks. I spritzed the inks with a little mist of water before stamping just to get the colors blending a little bit. When the ink was dry, I also used the Jagged Hearts Stencil to add a few subtle hearts on the bottom right corner with some white embossing paste.
While the embossing paste was drying, I took some vellum and embossed the "Hello Sunshine" sentiment from the Be Brave Stamp Set in Alabaster White Embossing Powder and then trimmed it down into a rectangle.
I also cut out a thin white cardstock frame to help the sentiment stand out a bit. I adhered the vellum and frame down, and then added a little gold washi tape to the top to give the impression that it was quickly taped to the front.
Lastly, to give the card a little more sparkle, I used the Glue Pad to add some adhesive around the corners of the frame and then sprinkled on some gold flakes, glitter, and sequins.
This turned out to be a very bright and happy card that fits perfectly with the sentiment!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Hope this is a fun look at some of these new stamps!
Until next time,
