Wish Big

Hello there, crafting friends...

A while ago, I saw this post on Betsy Veldman's blog that was so inspiring, it quickly went into my "to try list" :) I really love the idea that I can use different sentiment stamps to make it a focal point for a card.

Here is my first try, using a variety of stamp sets/ sentiments.

You probably recognized that I mainly used all the new In Colors 2011-2013. I think these colors look fresh together.

Then, on another day I made one of these sentiment stacks into this "Wish Big" card. I added little button stamps from the Button, Button stamp set. Aren't they cute?

I finished off the card with pretty Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon, spritzed More Mustard marker with my Color Spritzer Tool and then attached that big Designer Spice Cake button (in More Mustard) from the current Holiday Mini Catalog tied with the Baker's Twine. I {heart} those big buttons :)

And call it done.

Thank you for visiting, dear friends...

Happy stamping,
