Mixed Sentiments

I love to mix up my sentiments by using stamps and word dies. This card was super simple to make and you could change the stamped portion of the sentiment to use for so many different occasions.

This is a great CAS card that could be easily mass produced. I used this adorable patterned paper from a 6x6 Heidi Grace pad called "Sunshowers".  How cute is this paper!! 

Then I die cut half of a circle out to make a little spot for my sun to go. The sun die is from the Lawn Fawn "Bright and Sunny" stamps and die set. I thought it went perfect with the patterned paper. I also die cut my You sentiment and added it above the stamped sentiment. Both the you die and the stamped sentiment are from the Avery Elle "Simply Said You" set. I think this is a great way to get more from you dies and stamps. Sometimes its good to mix things up, right?

I challenge you to try mixing up your word dies and your stamps for some fun sentiments. 

Happy Crafting :)

Thinking of You Card with Distress Inks

Oh how I love using distress inks for my backgrounds! The blending is always so smooth and beautiful. I wanted this card to look like a sunrise.

I stamped these little birds from the Lawn Fawns "Hello Sunshine" stamp set in memento tuxedo black ink so I could color them with my copics. I think they turned out really cute.  I masked off my birds and inked up my background and then I stamped my greeting.

The greeting is from the Simon Says Dies and Stamps "From Me To You". I love this set, it is two stamps set full of greetings and two word dies that coordinate. I mounted my image on black cardstock for a nice pop!

I hope your inspired to try out distress inks on your next background. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting :)
