Space age, retro fun is what my project today is all about. I think I’ve mentioned before my love for retro style elements on cards.
I love fun and light-hearted stamp sets. For my project today, I discovered this cute sentiment stamp from Riley & Company called PMS—Purchase More Shoes, that is! Perfect for your best friend who loves her footwear!
Textural elements on cards are a great way to bring a clean and simple card to the next level. For today’s project, I’m using a stamp and die set from Spellbinders called Wine Corks to create a masculine card perfect for a birthday or any happy event.
Background dies are perfect for full sized cards as added texture and an additional layer. But why not add them to gift tags for the same effect? For today’s card, I’m using the versatile Hero Arts Fancy Flower Garden background die to create some easy and elegant birthday gift tags.
With the upcoming summer season, I foresee a lot of cotton candy being eaten. Fairs, amusement parks, the zoo….There’s something so iconic about the paper cone with swirled pink, blue or yellow cottony goodness piled on top. I was so excited to see that Avery Elle had a cute stamp set called Cotton Candy with lots of fun greetings—perfect for a summertime birthday!
Certain occasions sometimes call for a more formal style thank you card. For today’s project, I’m stepping a little bit out of my clean and simple comfort zone using lots of shimmery layers and flourishes.
Happy rainbows and whimsical unicorns are perfect for a little girl’s birthday card. For today’s project, I used a the Mama Elephant Over the Rainbow set that is chock full of whimsical icons perfect for the birthday girl!
