TGIF, everyone!  Chunyuan here today.  I have a fresh colored, happy card to share.

The sentiment is from Trendy Triangles set. I masked, stamped the sentiment three times and embossed.  Then I applied various ink while the mask was still on.  I added a few matching color sequins to enhance the happy feel of the card.

Happy Birthday, Subway Style

Hi Val here with a Subway Series birthday card to share today!

The birthday stamp from Subway Series: Basics is stamped in black onto green cardstock.  The stripe stamp from Background Check is stamped onto turquoise cardstock.  Black ink on colored cardstock packs a WOW, especially when it's paired with a white background.

A Little Sunshine

**For your chance to win a FREE stamp set - play along with Squeeze-A-Palooza!  Details can be found HERE**

Amy K. here with a bright sunshiny card!  Spring has yet to show off around here so I thought I'd bring Spring here!

Using Weather Through, I've stamped my rays in the pattern I wanted.  Where all the rays connect, I added a fun speech bubble to share my sentiment!  I thought it needed just a little something more so I embellished with a few clear iridescent sequins.

you are my sunshine

Weather Through

Thanks for stopping by for a piece of SUNSHINE!

Would You Like Some Flowers?

Hello! It's Jingle here with you today excited to share a sweet little card created with the adorable jar from the Breath of Fresh Flair set and a fabulous sentiment from Happy Hexagons!
