Use the handy Foam Adhesive Strips #141825 to elevate a frame, die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies #148551.

How to stamp a background

20190427_100833

Bloom by Bloom stamp set #148820 is VERSATILE! Try creating your own background. Select 3-4 colors you like together. Start with the largest image using one of the colors. Stamp it spaced fairly evenly on your layer. Second, use the next to largest image and another color. Finish with the smallest image to "fill in between" the previous shapes. Secret: if there is an area that you are NOT satisfied with...cover it with the sentiment! 

20190427_100850

Since the background is busy, I used a solid color to frame the sentiment. It helps the eye "rest on the word."

20190427_100909

It's fun to experiment with different color combos! TRY IT!

20190421_153524

Beautiful Day Stamp Set

20190410_091532 (2)

Beautiful Day Stamp Set #145915 is my favorite stamp set for using Stampin' BLENDS alcohol marker. I love it's simple boldness. 

20190410_091620 (2)

I do not claim to be an artist, but using BLENDS gives me satisfaction! I color each flower petal individually. My method is color the entire petal with the light shade. Second, add the shading with the darker marker. Last, go over the edge where the light and dark meet with the light shade to soften. I used the Highland Heather Combo Pack of Blends Markers #147276.

20190410_091607 (2)

This is a nice "all-purpose" card to have on hand for many occasions! TRY IT!

Beach Happy by Stampin' Up!

20190308_094047

I'm using Beach Happy Stamp Set #148585 today because March is GREAT beach weather here in Florida! The sun is warm, but the HEAT of summer has not arrived yet. (The sand gets extremely HOT in the summer - it hurts your bare feet.) I used my handy Stamparatus (positioning tool) #146276 with the 2-step "chair/umbrella" image to get perfect alignment!

20190308_094108

Both sentiments are layered with Crushed Curry color card stock to represent the "SUN!" The base card is Calypso Coral, a fun beachy color!
