Sentiment Show-off

Hello friends :)

It's time to show off our sentiments! Crafter's Companion has the perfect challenge going on this month that will put our sentiment stamps center stage! Go check out the challenge info. on the Crafter's Companion Facebook Page.

I'm soooo lovin' this quote! I can totally relate...can you?  It's one of the stamps from Crafter's Companion Sentimentals - Friends & Family set.

I white embossed the stamp on a Mermaid Cardstock die-cut label. Then I sponged Mermaid Ink right over the top of the embossed sentiment. I used an old rag to buff it around and wipe off the ink that got on the white embossing. It really gave depth to the piece!

Next, I took a white gel pen and hand-doodled around the outer edge of the label. The label is adhered to card with foam adhesive. I embellished with a bow made from paper cording and a couple paper flowers from my stash. The center of the flowers were a yellow I just colored them with a black Spectrum Noir marker.

I used the Chevrons Embossilicious Embossing Folder from Crafter's Companion on my card base and rounded the corners with a punch. A panel of black cardstock and designer paper along and more of that white paper cording are adhered flat to the card base. I really love how this card turned out!

I hope you find time to play with some of your sentiment stamps :)
