Feel Good Cards, Just Because Cards

Your Smile Brightens My Day!


Hi there, I hope you had a great weekend!

I’m sharing another bright and bold card today using many of the products I used for last week’s starry card.  This Nested Stars die set, along with nested rectangles, squares, and circles, is still on sale over at Scrapbook.com at the time of this post!

I started by using the Nested Stars dies to die cut a star mask out of a sheet of Avery Removable ID Labels (6465) and then I positioned the mask onto an A2-sized piece of  Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.  Then I used foam blending tools to blend ink around the mask, starting with a darker pink closer to the mask and fading out to a lighter pink around the edges of the card.  I used three Scrapbook.com hybrid inks: Mixed Berry, Confetti Pink, and Candy Shop Pink.

Before I removed the mask I splattered some dark and light pink gouache that I made out of mixing Crimson Red and White Artist’s Loft gouaches.  I splattered some pure white, as well.  I let the gouache dry and then removed the mask.

For the sentiment, I cut a smaller star out of Bristol Smooth and used Wow! Embossing Pad ink and white Hero Arts embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment which is from the Happy Little Sentiments stamp set.  Then I used one of the same foam blending tools to ink up the star with Mixed Berry ink.

To assemble the card, I backed the sentiment star with foam tape and adhered it to the card front and then I used a Permanent Adhesive Dots Roller to adhere the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for coming by!
