Create a Smile Stamps Challenge: Friendship

Hi Everyone,

Time is truly flying, and it's time for another challenge over at Create a Smile Stamps! This time, we're focusing on friendship. A really lovely theme, and it opens a lot of possibilities in terms of interpretation which is always great, isn't it?

I decided to play with the Cart full of treasures stamp set - it's so adorable, and so versatile, too! I love it when one stamp set can be used for many occasions! 

I coloured my images with Copic markers and then fussy cut them. It took me a while before I decided on the final layout and design of the card, but I am really happy with how it turned out. To ground my images, I used a tag using the Pocket Tag die set. I cut one in white and blended some Distress Inks on top, to create a mini scene. And then, I cut another tag from blue glitter paper - for some additional interest. I used the same die set to create the little "Surprise" banner that goes along the cart --> I was pretty chuffed with this idea, and I think it is a nice little detail on my card. 

The sentiment is a combination of a stamped message from this set (yes, I know, technically koalas are not bears, but we do call them "koala bears", so I thought that for the purpose of the cute card, it was allowed!), and I also used the cool Alphabet stickers by CAS - they come really handy, and their size is perfect for cards, so I reach for these quite often (especially when I want to personalise the card with the recipient's name). 

Finally, I added some sparkle here and there, and a few accents with my white gel pen.

And here's the finished card:

I hope you like my interpretation of the "Friendship" theme. Will you join the challenge, and try for your chance to win €25 to the Create a Smile store? 

Have a great day,
