Pinata Party

Hi Fresh Squeezed fans!  Tracey here sharing another card using the new Life of the Party stamp set! 

I created my background using three of the sentiments from this set.  I have a little trick I use to make sure I keep my stamping straight.  I draw a light pencil line from the top left corner of my card base down to the bottom right corner. Then I center my first word over the line and then make sure each stamped sentiment is stamped identical, I eyeball the spacing in between.  After I have done the middle I draw another line parallel to the left and another to the right. Then I use the same technique.  

You can find a picture tutorial of this technique on my blog today.

A sentiment from Everyday Expressions was masked and stamped on the card base and the pinata image was stamped, colored with Copics and then adhered with foam tape.  A few sequins and it's done!

I used Life of the Party and Everyday Expressions for today's card.  The perfect sentiments and image for a surprise birthday party! 

Check back here tomorrow for more Fresh Squeezed fun!
