Now lets get on to the cards...
My first card was created using Bold Birthday Sentiments and Butterfly Birthday.
I started by stamping the "Happy" sentiment in grey using the stamping off technique to achieve a lighter color value and going to the darkest color value by stamping the image full strength. I stamped the focal word using multiple complementing colors and added the word "birthday" over the lighter value "happy". The butterfly from Butterfly Birthday was stamped in black and colored in with Copics using coordinating colors.
Next up is my card using Butterfly Birthday
I stamped the beautiful butterfly image in rainbow colors creating a circle pattern. The sentiment was stamped in a circle die, placed in the center of the butterflies and I added the words "my friend" to the lower right corner to finish this card off. I just love the font used in this set!!
Next up is a card using Big Bold Numbers
These numbers work great when creating a background or use them alone to make a grand statement!
My last two cards use the Mixed Christmas Sentiments.
This is a great collection of holiday sentiments in a variety of wonderful fonts that will suit all your holiday card making needs.
I hope I have inspired you today with my cards. The designers and I have had so much fun playing with these stamps! Next you need to hop on over to Melissa's blog.
