Big News, I Like You, Choose Happiness

Everybody loves to be the first to hear Big News! And I have some for you so get ready! I am submitting to two new challenges!! Isn’t that great?! This card was made with two challenge blogs in mind: Just Add Ink and Freshly Made Sketches.

I am resuming my quest to using all of my stamp sets, which is quite a challenge! Today I decided to get out Big News. This stamp set is great for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards so I wanted to give it a try. I paired it with I Like You and Choose Happiness, and, even though I have used both of those before, I made sure that I used stamps that I hadn’t used already. This challenge is getting rather fun!

First, I stamped the sentiments with VersaMark and then inked them with color and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the flowers and colored them with my Blendie pens – nothing fancy but I still love these pens! After cutting out the sentiment with the Oval Collections framelits, I cut the Bermuda Bay frame and ran it through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan embossing Folder. Once I laid down the ribbon, it was time to assemble the card and add the candy dots. It really didn’t take much time to put this card together, with the most time just fussy cutting the flowers. If you wanted, you could use flowers that had a coordinating punch and save a little time.
