Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope this week is going well for you! I'm down to my last day for my craft show prep - so I'll be a busy bee today! I have been sharing this week cards that I made on Saturday to celebrate World Card Making Day. I used the Basket of Wishes set from the holiday catalog and made 8 cards. If you missed the first 4 cards, please make sure to see the two previous posts from this week.
I love this set for many reasons, but my favorite stamp in the set is the bunch of succulents! I think Sweet Sugarplum is a perfect color for some succulents.
I added a little hint of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits. I love just that little bit peeking through.
I also splattered some Tip Top Taupe ink using an Aqua Painter.
Now you may notice, the birthday sentiment was cut up for these two cards. The card above I used the bottom part of the sentiment for and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. The top part I used for the next card.
For a fun background, I stamped just the top part of the sentiment in Memento Ink. Because this set is a photopolymer set, you can see where the ink is transferred. I embossed a layer of Whisper White cardstock with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and cut it at an angle. Lastly, I added a few 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes to finish off the card! :)
I hope you have been enjoying these cards highlighting the Basket of Wishes stamp set! Tomorrow I have the last two to share using the berry basket. This might also be my next Stamps in the Mail kit - so stay tuned!
