Balloon of Heal-ium for a Special Someone

Today’s card has an adorable little mouse holding a “heal-ium” filled balloon (that is the sentiment stamped inside). I just adore the Special Someone stamp set in the 2020 Spring Mini catalog. It also has a raccoon and a squirrel. It’s a two-step stamp set, so you can use a darker ink for the outline detailing and a lighter shade to color the inside quickly and easily. You could also choose to stamp the outline and color in the images with watercolor pencils or Stampin’ Blends. Lots of coloring options. I also adore these shades of purple and I hope the recipient likes them, too!

Not a Team Player Today!

So I actually AM a team player, but had to title today’s card this. Why? Because both the front and inside sentiments are actually only half of the stamps. I made this card for my boss’ Birthday, but not in time to take it to work for the rest of the department to sign. So, had to leave that part off. Then, when deciding on the inside sentiment, I chose to use only part of that as well. It was super easy – I just placed a sticky note over the part I didn’t want to show up. Inked it up, removed the sticky note, and voila! Below the card photos are the complete stamp sets. I just love these! I can’t stand how stinkin’ cute the office chair is. Ok. I’ll admit it. I wanted the set just for that one stamp. And check out the sentiments in Here’s a Card. Some of them are downright hilarious! Definitely my kind of stamp sets. And if you look closely, the Night of Navy cardstock layer is embossed with the Subtle 3D folder to emulate the fabric on a real chair. Details Details!
