I know it’s not a great “business decision,” but I love to have [almost] all of the stamps and papers available to me – just in case I need one of them to create a look. Today’s project is composed of three stamp sets – thank goodness I had all three because they were exactly what I needed to complete the look. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Light it Up. That single light bulb from You Brighten My Day deserves its own showcase – it’s super-cute and can be used in so many ways. The other stamps sets (Be the Star and Celebrate Today) take supporting roles here, but I’m so glad I had both in my collection. You can earn You Brighten My Day during Sale-a-Bration – one of the free items you can choose with a $50 order. Who doesn’t love that?!
- Supporting Characters. The sentiment from Be the Star and cord from Celebrate Today aren’t the center of this card, but they allow the bulb to shine (pun intended). This sentiment (Be Brilliant) is not a sentiment in Be the Star, but I made it one by masking one and then adding another. To learn more about masking sentiments, you can check out my video here.
- Borders. I love to create thin borders around layers on my cards. In general, the border is darker or deeper than the layer. The Daffodil Delight borders, though, add quite a bit of “pop.” While the base of the card and the top panel of the card are Basic Gray, I used the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack to add a layer of textured gray. Love that stack of paper!
