Day three of Share Handmade Kindness. Keeping the idea of sharing with Family and Friends. I decided to look through and see what stamps would work for just telling someone how wonderful they are. That is when I came across the stamp set Big News and the sentiment “is there no limit to your Awesomeness”.
Perfect! Now what to do with it. I tried a few things. Thinking all a while that I was going to stamp and emboss the image on a background that was watercolored or textured some how. Well, I was not really liking what I came up with. So, I finally looked over at my stash of Designer Series Paper searching for a little spark of Inspiration. That spark came when I started flipping through Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper. Whammm Bammm…There it was!!!! Now I know exactly what to do….
This paper is full of color and life. I just love all the patterns in this Designer Series Paper. Strips, circles, polka dots, and little connecting squares. What’s not to like?
The card base is Daffodil Delight card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches. The Pacific Point layer is 1/4 inch smaller (5 1/4 by 4) The Schoolhouse layer is 1/8 inch smaller than the Pacific Point layer.
The “is there no limit to your Awesomeness” banner is stamped on Whisper White paper (1 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches) in the new Archival Basic Gray ink. And the layers of Pacific Point (1/8 inch larger) and Daffodil Delight (1/4 inch larger than the Pacific Point)
