Paperbabe Stamps December Release - Just Because

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good start to the week. Today is the first day of samples at the  
 and I'm sharing a card using the first of three lovely sentiment sets. 
'Just Because' 
has a large sentiment and a separate outline which reminds me of the beautiful illuminated scripts of medieval books. There's also a polka dot kissing strip stamp so that the solid 'because' sentiment can be kissed with the strip stamp which gives lots of options and variations for this set. There are lots of other smaller stamps in the set so that the perfect complete sentiment can be made up for an occasion. I really do love how Kim puts so much thought into her stamp sets to give lots of stamping options.

I stamped the 'because' solid stamp in pink and then stamped the outline stamp with black ink before adding the smaller 'it's your birthday' stamp. I added stickles glitter glue over the pink ink for some sparkle and an inked and glittered mat layer behind it.

I've paired up the sentiment stamp panel with the Lotus peony outline stamp from the Oriental Zen set for the background on my card base and mounted the sentiment on top with some dimension tape.
Back tomorrow with my next sample.

Hi Chris, that stamp set is such a great idea, I love the flourishes, they are gorgeous and the stickles are the perfect finishing touch for the 'because'. A really beautiful card. Hugs, Anne x

Hi there Chris - ooh I like this! Not only as I adore all things pink, but I also like the detailing on "because" as it draws your eye to it

What a fabulous sparkly Because - I love that it has the word and the outline separately - clever design!

And your card looks so fresh and funky!

Absolutely gorgeous Chris and I agree....what fab stamps! Love your choice of colour and the peony background stamp, curious to know what the pom-pom thing is though.
Hope all well with you. xxx

Gorgeous card in my fave color, pink! I like the big letters and how it is set inside the outline box. So sparkly and pretty set on top of the lovely stamped floral background. You always have great ideas!
