You might have spotted that I don't normally add sentiments to my cards, this is becuase I usually sell them so it's easy to add a particular sentiment if the buyer wants one or it means it can be used more than one occasion. I realised whilst sort my stamps in their new homes in my craft room that I have quite a few sentiments, a lot of which have not been used - slapped wrists for me! So I challenged myself to design a card around a sentiment, and I'm entering it into the Noor! Design blog challenge - Something Old, Something New. I like unique sentiment stamps and I think this "Joy is a flower that blooms when you do" (new) from Bee Crafty is perfect for lots of types of celebrations or just to cheer someone up.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed, distressed with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender Distress Ink and painted with Milled Lavender Distress Crackle Paint and edged with TH Seedless Preserve DI.
Noor! Design die (old) to frame the sentiment, this is also coloured with TH Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserve DI. It is matted and layered on to patterned paper from my stash (old), again edged with TH Seedless Preserve DI.
Creative Blessings. x
