Simple Sentiments

Hey everyone! I'm back from Creativation 2019 and am totally wiped out.  But I still couldn't resist sharing a card with you!

Today, I've got a card to share using the new Simple Sentiments stamp set. I paired it with Peek-a-Boo PalsStarry Scene and Photo Mat dies.
First, I stamped the background using Starry Scene in Avery Elle Aquamarine ink and then die cut it out with the coordinating die.  Then, I stamped the images from Peek-a-Boo Pals, colored them in and then die cut them out.  Finally, I die cut the polaroid shape from Photo Mat dies.

I assembled the card and then heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock to add to the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.  Have a great one!

And Then

Hey all!  Today I've got a fun card using the amazing new Avery Elle And Then sentiment stamp set.
To create my card, I decided to have some fun with the sentiment and create a really cool splash of color behind it. To do this, I followed a few easy steps.
 First, I positioned my stamp on my MISTI and then inked the stamp with a few colors of water reactive ink (distress inks).
Next, I spritzed the inked up stamp with water.
Quickly, I stamped the spritzed stamp onto my card.
Finally, once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the card and ta-da done!  I love the look of this.  So fun too!
Once I had the sentiment assembled, I positioned a few Peek-a-Boo Pals behind the largest Wonky Scallops frame die to finish my card.  
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
