Fun Embellishments

Can you believe I have only recently discovered the wonder of embellishments?  Don't get me wrong, I love ribbon like there is no tomorrow, but to be honest that was pretty much my ONLY embellishment go-to standard.  Sad, I know.

However, I am happy to report that my embellishment lacking life has been kick started to a new fun level!

This is a fun card that I made using a Cork Calendar Sticker from Freckled Fawn, a fun resin camera and cute little sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

My cousin Courtney had an adorable baby girl on the 28th of August and I thought the Cork Calendar sticker would be PERFECT as a fun little card to send her.  I thought about adhering a sequin to the day or circling it, but the Heart Resin Camera was FABULOUS in outlining the birth day.  I wanted to keep incorporating the heart from the camera so I did a heart punch border on the top of the white layer. Not sure I am thrilled with the outcome, but I don't necessarily HATE it.  (Plus, I already put the calendar sticker on the paper when I did it.  Oops!)

On the inside, I used the new Toes to Tickle stamp along with my ever favorite Wedding Dress stamp for the swirls to frame in the sentiment.  I must say, the Happiness Is... series has got to be a favorite of mine.  It's so stinking easy to customize a card with it!

So how fun is that?!  I used 3 different types of embellishments in my card where normally I would have added a ribbon and been done with it!  I am moving up in the world!!!

Here is the BEST part!  You can actually find MOST of the embellishments on our website along with Flower Soft! Woo hoo!!!!!  I am sad to say that we are not carrying Pretty Pink Posh sequins yet, but a girl can hope, right?

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
