On to the cards, shall we?

Jen Carter Whimsy Awesome as You Are Basic Bkgrnds Borders 2 Birthday Balloon

For today's card I stamped one of the background stamps from the new Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2 in strips on my light gray cardstock one at a time with watermark ink.  Then, I embossed each one (each color separately) in a different color.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum from the new Birthday Balloon set that was showcased yesterday and embossed it in silver.  I really love that banner sentiment!  So that I didn't have to adhere my vellum to the front of my cardbase, I scored it on each side, wrapped it around my card mat & then adhered it to the backside.  A great tip that I learned from my friend Amy!

Jen Carter Clearly Whimsy Love Word Get Well Soon

Last up today is a card that I made with a few more new products!  I stamped the "plus" sign from the Get Well Soon stamp set randomly on my cardstock in different colors of ink.  This was inspired by a patterned paper from Pink Paislee that I really like and wanted to recreate a similar look.  It made a nice frame for the sentiment!

The new Love Word die is gorgeous!  I really like that scripty font!  I die cut it here from magenta glitter paper.  To finish the card off, I added a few clear sequins.

Before I go, there are a few other things that you might want to take notice of!
