Positive Thoughts in the New Year

Sneak Peek! Release in 2 DAYS. The Wonderful as You stamp set is a sweet and sad set all in one. For me this sets vibe is to lift you up during sad occasions. And lets be real this will be a great set for 2021. Who knows what this year will bring us.

I created a trio of cards that can be used for a different occasions. I did all just a bit different from the other but used the same Sentiment on the front from Wonderful As You (a January 5, 2021 release) stamp set. I changed the inside sentiment to meet a different need for each card. For the inside I used a mix of sentiments from Wonderful as You and the upcoming Sale a-bration set Heal Your Heart. You can earn the Heal Your Heart set with a $50.00 purchase. Ask me for details!

Fun Fact – One of the cards was supposed to be a Night of Navy or Misty Moonlight (my bff Trisha said make a blue one) but it was late and I love purple and forgot. As soon as I finished the Gorgeous Grape and smacked my forehead! I said to myself in my craft corner “oh well what is done is done” and moved on. You should try a “blue” one I bet it will be pretty,

Heat Embossing – For the front of my cards I heat embossed the sentiment and butterflies. I felt that just stamping them would not add enough pop for me on my water color back ground. I created the background using my Water Painter and my ink pad. I let it dry and placed it under some heavy objects overnight to flatten the paper out after putting the water color on it.

If you need a Mini Catalog or SAB (sale a-bration) brochure please let me know and I can get that out to you!
