Smiley Face Card (ft. Paper Smooches stamps) + FLASH SALE at

Happy Friday, all! Isn’t this a happy card? I just love smiley faces. :)

Today I created a card using the Spreading Sunshine stamp set from Paper Smooches. Such a fun stamp set with awesome greetings!

I did a bit of “stamp surgery” to cut the greeting stamp apart so I could stamp the greeting in two different inks. You could always skip the “stamp surgery” and do some masking on the stamp instead, but I went with the easy route. And it won’t be a problem down the road since I can always mount the stamps back together on a block if I want to use them all at once in the future.

Different colors of pigment ink were used on the card. I love how Mimosa pigment ink from Avery Elle looks like it it’s glowing! Such a happy color.

I hope you enjoy today’s video! I’ve done a lot of watercoloring and painting recently so it was fun to do an all-stamped card.
