You Are Wonderful

Let's enjoy a bit of simple Papertrey goodness this morning. The set is Way to Go, Kiddo! I needed some more child-friendly stamps, and this set certainly meets that need, but the images and some of the sentiments also work well for anyone. In this case, the sentiment expresses how I feel about YOU, my very kind readers!


How-To Tip: This card is really self-explanatory, but I thought I'd mention Memento Dew Drop ink pads. I find myself reaching for them more and more these days, and for this card, they came in handy with inking the flower image. Because the pads are small and have a pointy end, it's easy to ink up a stamp like this in two colors...and then only stamp once. No worries with masking and lining the image up for a second impression.

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Ink (Way to Go, Kiddo!)
ink: Memento, SU close to cocoa
paper: SU pretty in pink, close to cocoa; Papertrey white
accessories: big rhinestones, dimensionals

  4. What a pretty, and still simple, card. Appropriate for anyone's day. The color choices are lovely. Thanks for the Dew Drop info! - I've looked at those a million times, and thought "but do I really need another ink pad?" Now I know --- I do!
