All About You

All of the stamp designers at Papertrey Ink make my mind just spin with possibilities, but if I had to choose one whose stamps I turn to time and time again (not counting my super sweet boss,Nichole Heady, of course!), it would be Melissa Bickford. Her clever designs and fun layering make her stamps ones that I grab often. This card shows exactly why! I started with a color combination of Enchanted Evening and Hibiscus Burst. The Enchanted Evening cardstock got a healthy dose of Background Basics: Botanicals in Fresh Snow ink (yum!). The Hibiscus Burst got to have a little fun, too, after a rendevous with Linen & Canvas Impression plate. The stamped focal image was done on a piece of Stamper's Select cardstock punched with a Marvy punch. The "Make Me Happy" is actually a straight sentiment that I curved on my block (LOVE that about clear stamps!).

And you may be wondering about those scrumptious felt flowers - you will not believe how easy those are! I simply cut Fresh Snow felt with the Large Scalloped Border die, rolled them up, then started folding back the layers. (They were easy to adhere with Glue Arts Adhesive Squares.) So easy - and it looks great!

Hey - speaking of Glue Arts, I wanted to let you know that there is a brand-new blog! Some of my design team projects will be on there, and I think you will get some fun sneak peeks of the innovative products coming out for CHA. (I'm working on my trade show projects right now, and I can tell you, the product I'm working with has me wondering where it has been because it is SO COOL! I think it will really open up crafting possibilities...stop by the Glue Arts Blog to learn more! ;)

Alright friends - thanks for stopping by today! Have an amazing one - be well.
