Emoji Farewell

I think this texting stamp set from Simon Says Stamps is so cute. I created this farewell notecard a little smaller than an A2 sized card.
I stamped and punched the faces then added layers of circles and square. The sentiment is heat embossed and popped up with foam tape. I finished with some onyx gems.

Sending Love - Artsy style

My sister is an artist, she never fails to impress me with all her talents so I know she would appreciate my attempt and with an artsy style card. She did which makes me very happy.

I saw this video on YouTube and wanted to try it, I have such a huge supply of embossing powders that are not loved enough. I think I may have to try this technique again.

I added layers of cardstock to create a frame, I heat embossed the sentiment and added a small frame to that as well.


Supplies: White and black cardstock, Hero Arts - Many Everyday Messages, misc embossing powders.

CAS Mother Day

Good Morning, a CAS card this morning. I used some scraps from my bin for this simple and fun Mothers Day card.

I snipped off the corner then add a bit of DP from the reverse side of this double-sided paper. I stamped the sentiment and added a layer of black cardstock and popped it up with foam tape. 

I die cut the spiral flower and added it beneath the sentiment, I finished with some gems.
