Hello, friends! It’s Meghann with you today. This past weekend, I celebrated World Cardmaking Day by creating a big bunch of cards, and it felt so great to get creative on an A2 scale! I used some of the newest goodies from the ES shop, including the Good Times Stamp to create two fun card designs, and I’d love to share them with you today!
Supplies | Die Cut Labels – Jewel Tones, Happy Moments Puffy Stickers, Puffy Star Stickers, Good Times Stamp, Hazel Alphabet Stamp
There are so many creative possibilities with the Good Times Stamp, and I created two very different card backgrounds here! My first card was is a birthday card, and I used the fun border from the stamp to create a column of color on the left side of my card using pink, purple and black ink. This set my color scheme and also gave me a great base to add my sentiment!
My sentiment was created using the “happy” word from the Happy Moments Puffy Stickers and added a Die Cut Label below stamped with the Hazel Alphabet Stamp to add the word “birthday.” Below that I added a simple “love you // xoxo” in purple ink using the stamp. I love that this stamp includes both sentiments and illustrations—it’s the perfect stamp for cards! I wanted to add a bit more embellishment and different textures, so I grabbed my Puffy Star Stickers, then added a few plus signs using black ink and the Good Times Stamp! A sweet and simple card made in minutes!
Is anyone else in love with these mandala circles like me? I just want to stamp them in every color! On my second card, I stamped them overlapping in purple, teal, yellow and black hues first, then added a coordinating heart in three circles. The jewel-toned Die Cut Labels came in handy again here, and I added a black one using dimensional adhesive for a bold pop of contrast in the center, stamped with “thanks” using the retired Thank You Stamp in teal. Below, I used those very handy sentiments from the Good Times Stamp again to add “// this was the best.” With all of that color and texture created using the mandala stamp, I didn’t need much embellishment—just a few enamel dots to coordinate with the background colors!
I had so much fun creating these two beautiful cards using the Good Times Stamp, and I hope you’ve been inspired to ink up your stamps and share some handmade kindness today, too!
