Today I'm going to share with you a few more creations using my Celebrate Life stamp set. Here is a trio of cards I created using two of the stamps in this set:
Supplies: Patterned Papers: American Crafts, Studio Calico; Washi Tape: Studio Calico, Queen and Co.; Bow: Crate Paper; Enamel Dots: My Minds Eye; Stamp Set: Celebrate Life by MFT; Other: Ribbon, Copic Markers, Twine, Enamel Dots, Sequins, Doily, Black Ink
I warned you yesterday that I love sequins. They came out again today on my two cards! For this one, I stamped the "let your smile change the world" stamp with black ink on white cardstock. I colored it in with Copic markers and outlined it with twine. I added white sequins around it and added it to the top of my card. The card base is made with washi tape along the top and patterned paper on the bottom. A big white bow and it was done!
For this card, I stamped the "love you" image on patterned paper using black ink and again colored it in with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen to whiten some areas of the stamped design. I also added some additional doodles around the outside edges of a punched circle. I added sequins around it and placed it on top of a doily. Some ribbon and patterned paper and another girly card was finished!
I love using my stamps for project life cards. This one is 3x4 to fit into a Becky Higgins page protector pocket. I stamped the image on the top of a white cardstock base. I added some addtional doodles with a black Micron pen and used Copics to color in the design and around the edges of the card. All it needs is some journaling!
I hope you enjoyed these creations using my new Celebrate Life stamp set. Don't forget to visit all of the MFT design team blogs to see more creations using this set and Laina's new set - I cannot wait to see what others have done with my stamps - so excited!
