    Happy-Happy-Happy

    So many awesome dies were released by The Stamps of Life this week!

    Today I have a card to share that uses a couple of the new dies.

    Here is my Birthday Card that I made with the new Happy and Chevron dies!




    The chevron is from the Chevron #2 die set.
    I used it five times in a row on a white panel and then adhered the colored strips of cardstock behind each chevron strip.

    And the "Happy" is available HERE.
    I die cut "Happy" out of five colors and adhered each of them to the white panel.


    I even had fun using the dies on the inside of this card!


    I hope you are having a great weekend!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    It's a Shower

    Ever use the expression, "When it rains, it pours"? This does not have to be a bad thing, does it? For the month of April, the Dream Team are featuring "Showers of Showers" as our theme. As usual, we'd love for you to play along. Just link your creation on the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...bonus chances for incorporating Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous in your design. 
    Here's what I'm showering you with this week...


    I stenciled the Sheep Stencil with Regular Embossing Paste and set it aside to dry.


    Sponge chalk ink on the sheep to color it.
    The letters are Dual Alphabet Dies from Dreamweaver.
