Heck Yes! | Leadership Conference Display Card

I've already mentioned that the sentiment sets in the new Bloom This Way catalog make my heart go pitter-patter.  The fonts used are just so pretty, that they can work on their own in a card.  

Currently, FSJ Leadership Conference is going on in Texas.  As a member of the Designer Showcase team, I created a display for the Leadership event.  Today's card is one of the cards from that display, and I will be sharing additional projects once a week.  

This fun & sunny yellow handmade (DIY) card, is perfectly appropriate for telling that special someone how awesome you think they are.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey Good Stuff Stamp Set | muchlovesara.com

I create my cards on top of a gridded mat.  And our amazing Clear Blocks (On sale this month!) have a grid pattern, which allows you to line up your items on your paper.  This is helpful to create a background as I've done today, because I set my stamp on my block at an angle, and then I can use the grids to keep the stamp at the same angle every time I stamp.  Once I had stamped the "Heck Yes" stamp all over the background, I quickly rubbed it with Gold PanPastel.  The PanPastel adds a lovely subtle shimmer, and adheres more intensely to the places where I stamped, as the ink was still slightly tacky. 

I then added some die cut pierced circles, and a splattering of gold silks.  I layered up my banner pieces, and sentiment, added a punched out heart, and some pearls and was done.

I loved this card.  It was honestly one of my favorites (and I'm sooo not a yellow person!).

Thanks for stopping by!
