Lovely, amazing you was the first sentiment that jumped at me when I looked at the Newton’s Nook “Happy Little Thoughts” stamp set. I love stamp sets like that. You can use them all year around and they fit to so many occasions, it’s not a fancy set or one that follows a specific trend. You can use it on any type of card with numerous techniques.
Today I decided to create two little note cards using this stamp set and two more from Lawn Fawn. I started with blending three Distress Inks onto the card base. To get an even look, I blended the inks back and forth a couple of times, from the lightest to the darkest color and back.
Then I stamped all the critters, the wreath and some hearts and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I did some simple Copic coloring, nothing fancy. Just two shades per combination.
I had some leftover vellum with hearts already printed on them, so I adhered the wreath on top and fuzzy cut the vellum around it. At the end I adhered the wreath directly to the card base and used foam tape for the critters. Finally, I added my favorite sentiment “Lovely, Amazing You” from the Newton’s Nook set to the card.
Of course I had to add a little sparkle to the hearts. I just love the Spectrum Noir sparkle pens for those little accents 😉
I hope you enjoyed my two little note cards. Do you have a stamp set that works for every occasion? What’s your favorite?
