Send Some (Bright) Cheer


Today I had a bit of time to make some cards. That felt good.

I was so happy to use a new set I am crazy about – Cheerful Blessings from My Favorite Things. Lots of greetings that I love so much. Oh, and sorry I didn’t warn you to wear sunglasses…

This card was quick to do. I stamped the background with the Hero Arts Radiant Banner stamp and Butter Bar Ink. I then painted over the rays with orange and yellow Wink of Stella glitter brushtip markers. (This gives subtle, delicate shine that rocks. It is excellent to use on simple cards.) I then die cut an orange circle and embossed the new My Favorite Things Cheerful Blessing image in white. (LOVE THIS GREETING. Sorry. That deserves capital – lol.) And finally I put a light coating of clear Wink of Stella glitter brushtip marker over the orange piece and rubbed it away quickly for just a bit of shine…

Bright colors. A bit of shine. The perfect message. I am hoping this card has everything it needs to make a friend smile.

Here is a look at that must-have stamp set from MFT

This stamp set is a new one and you can get it HERE. (By the way, I would recommend buying a few other goodies while there so you can get THIS amazing set for free.) Or you can get it at Simon Says Stamp HERE.

Have a happy day.

    Thanks Jen, for the brilliant card, pun intended. LOL Yeah, a sunglasses warning would have been a good thing, but, just kidding, of course. WOW, it’s a fantastic and bright card, and boy, does that sentiment really work, or what? As usual, I always appreciate your sharing and your tips and tricks. You are so talented. I just finished up with your last Online Class, and BTW, have opted to take a Read Only class, for the inspiration. You guys rock!! The joy that all of your efforts, and the classes have brought to my life, are priceless, just so you know that you make a difference with your enthusiasm, and talent. Thanks for that. Just keep it up, okay? LOL
