Paperbabe Stamps December Release - Happy Thoughts Sentiment Set

Hi everyone! I'm back today with my samples for Paperbabe Stamps gorgeous 
Sentiment stamp set 

Over on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog there are more details of the sets so far and Kim's fantastic samples together with links to Simonne's beautiful creations.

This is another gorgeous set and there are so many ways of using it and many options for making up the perfect sentiment for a card. As you can see above I've used the 'happy' solid stamp to create my typographical style card together with one of the smaller sentiments and the hearts kissing strip stamp which is a continuous stamp end to end so I was able to make a vertical border with it. I've highlighted some of the words with white pen, some with black glitter glue and added some white lines between the words.

 I created my background with Dylusions ink sprays and after all my stamping was done and the glitter was dry I added a strip of black card raised on dimension foam to finish off.

 So that I could show another way of using this lovely set I took the smaller stamp 'Christmas' and stamped it onto a die cut label which is mounted on dimension foam over the tag. My tag background is stamped with the Ribbed Background stamp in red ink for the Christmas stocking effect :-) and then I've used the Happy outline stamp to stamp a border around the edge of the tag, that's been filled in with a silver pen. I've finished off with a die cut poinsettia, holly leaves, pearls and twine.

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my sample yesterday, they're always appreciated and I'm back tomorrow with the 'Fabulous' sentiment set! Enjoy your day.

Fabulous card and tag, Chris... and following your advice in the later post, I went to have a look at the Kissing Strip tutorial and a few other posts over there too... These stamp releases are so clever and versatile.
