When the Sentiment Stands Alone

Note: The One-Layer Simplicity Challenge is up and running for November. I hope you'll join in and spread some peace around the interwebs.

Sometimes sentiments are designed in such a way that you can let them stand alone on a card...especially if you like white space!

The reverse block letters on the HAPPY stamp are lined up nicely on the stamp, but I wanted each square to be a different color, and by separating them, I could make them dance happily rather be locked in a rather staid straight line.

Isn't that wacky!?!? I'm such a rebel.

The colors come from another Kaleidacolor pad Caribbean sea, which is one of my favorite Kaleidacolor pads. Of course, there are a lot of great Kaleidacolor pads, so it's impossible to have just one favorite.

I have commitment issues.

stamps: Papertrey Birthday Bash Sentiments
ink: Kaleidacolor Caribbean sea; Hero Arts intense black
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: scissors, dimensionals

    1. Thanks, Janet. Those are some of my favorite colors put together. *happy sigh*

  3. We need more "happy". I see your commitment issues as more decision fatigue. Many of my favorite stamps I purchased because I saw them here. Thank you for the beauty, joy and peace you spread across the web.
