OSAT Blog Hop Sale A Brate the Occasion using the free Happy Wishes Stamp set

For my creations today, I used the FREE* Happy Wishes Stamp Set.

I love the font — it has the feel of a handwritten note.

And, I love the sentiments themselves — so very versatile!

I used a Flirty Flamingo cardstock base.

Then, I added a Whisper White layer

followed by a layer of Sweet Soiree Specialty designer paper.

Next, I adhered a strip of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon.

You’ve got to see the ribbon in person to really appreciate the subtle shimmer.

For my focal image, I stamped the large sentiment from Happy Wishes in Flirty Flamingo.

Then, I cut it out by hand.

After layering it onto a piece of Basic Black, I cut it out a second time (yes, really).

After stamping “anniversary”, I added three small pearls inside three small sequins.

At the top, I finished the card with some faux drops.

To create these, I drew various sized dots with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then, I topped each dot with a dome from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

      Thanks Pam! The pearls and sequins combo are what happens when the thinking goes something like –“it needs just one more something”.
