Smile!


I made another card for my Online Card Class's Stretch Your Stamp 2 class!  This one was very much inspired by some gorgeous cards made by Debby Hughes.  It's a 3 1/2" x 5" card, and I started by using the chevron stencil from Heidi Swapp's Patterns Mini Stencil Kit and some Mustard Seed distress ink to make a little background.

Then I die cut a heart out of white cardstock with the My Creative Time Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies and repeatedly stamped the word "SMILE" that I created with some letter stamps from MCT's Alpha Pack with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  I inked up the heart with both Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.

The white "Smile" was cut with a die from MCT's Happy Thoughts, and then I added some sequins and a little flower embellishment.
