Hey stampers, Anni here!
Isn't the new release F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S? And I am starting with my absolute favorite stamp set of all time: Sweet Shoppe! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the images in this set! So much fun to color... And the Sweet word die is just the perfect addition.
A few days ago I bought some cardstock. I just grabbed the colors I liked but when I stood in the line to pay I just realized what a great color combo it was. That was the inspiration for today's card.
I started with stamping the images on Strathmore 300 Bristol Smooth cardstock - the perfect paper for coloring with colored pencils. I use Prismacolors and Polychromos, I like them both and can't choose a favorite. I colored the images and added some highlights with a white gel pen.
Then I fussy cut the images (there are matching dies available too - I am just one of the weird persons that like to fussy cut).
For the sentiment I die cut the Sweet word from cream cardstock several times and stacked them up for more dimension. For my card base I choose some patterned paper. I don't use that much patterned paper but this one fits perfectly I think. It was subtle enough to stamp the rest of the sentiment directly on it. I finished the card by adding some Wink of Stella to the die cut word.
Thanks for stopping by and have a sunny week.
