I'm BACK! With a Thank You Card.

Hello Friendly Friends! I am BACKKKKK! Thank you all for your kindness and understanding as I took a short bloggy break to deal with personal things. Sometimes.. ya just gotta. 

I'm back in action with a bright and fun card I designed for the new STAMPlorations theme & sketch challenge

The theme for this month's challenge is Stamps & Family, but I chose to use the sketch for my design. 

I stamped a bunch of those funky flowers from the Trendy Spring Blooms set in black ink and then colored them with lots of GLITTER!!!! 

I just found these Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers at Michael's for 70 percent off.... so naturally I had to take them for a test drive. 

Once everything was colored, I did some fussy cutting and added some fun gemstone and enamel dot centers to some of my flowers.

I used a serious of sentiments from the Trendy Feathers 2 stamp set and created a text pattern for my background. 

And just like that - a card was born!  

If you liked any of the stamps you saw me use in today's card... have I ever got good news for you: You can get them for 20% off in the STAMPlorations shop by using code STAMPGIRLBECCA at checkout. Woop woop! 

It feels good to be back in action! I hope you all will go play along with this month's challenge so I can oooogle some sweet designs.

  3. What a fun card. I love the repeated stamping of the sentiment (which is really fab!!) and your use of the glitter pens. I bought these too at Michael's but mine were NOT 70% off. Wish I had gotten them at this price. Love the blooms colored in with these!
