Create a Smile Stamp Bright Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a card featuring Create a Smile for their Birthday theme challenge. Create a Smile is hosting a monthly theme challenge with a chance to win a gift certificate to their store. I love Create a Smile stamps and am so enjoying the inspiration and community they have built on Facebook. For the card I wanted to make a rainbow but also draw your attention to the big bold sentiment so I used a scallop frame die from Gina Marie. For more information and tips check out the video.

Alcohol Ink Background featuring Right at Home Stamps

Alcohol Ink Background by Jess Gerstner featuring Right at Home Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a card for the Right at Home One Year Anniversary challenge. I'm so happy for Nicole and think she is doing some amazing things with her line of stamps. I wish her all the best as she continues to share new products with us all. The challenge is to create a card using the Right at Home stamps. I used the Script Greetings stamp set for my sentiment and created a background with alcohol inks. For more details check out my video:

In the video I created my own enamel dots using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops. While they are not exactly like manufactured enamel dots they are a great money saving alternative and I'm quite happy with the results.
