Sweet Stamp Shop Release Day

For my first post today, please click HERE

Hi everyone! This month I'm one of the Guest Designers at Sweet Stamp Shop, and today is the second day of the March release.



For the three stamp sets being shown today, I used the Alpha Tabs set. It's a cool set--the individual letters remind me of mini alpha stickers. There are a few sentiments in the set, too, which is what I used on this card:


This was a fun card to make. :) I started with this fab woodgrain paper from Simon Says Stamp (I'm officially addicted to this paper!) and splattered some Mr. Huey's.

While the spray ink was drying, I stamped and fussy cut the "happy" and "birthday" from the Alpha Tabs set. After that, I punched some BasicGrey confetti  and added some other embellishments and stitching. Here's a close-up:



Isn't it fun? It looks pretty haphazard, but I have to admit that it took me forever to pick the embellishments and get the layout right. I'm ridiculously slow at crafting--hee hee.

Be sure to check out the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to see the rest of the cards from the other Guest Designers. A big thanks to Nicole for having me as a Guest Designer this month! I'll be showing more cards from the release in a couple of weeks.
