Kindness

This card I made for a swap. I left it simple but I think it stands out.

First I stamped Pattern Pieces on the tangerine tango cardstock with ink of the same color for a tone on tone look. Then I added a few pieces of cardstock stock pieces in Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso. Then I added the buttons I made using the Sweet Buttons Embosslit along with some ribbon. Now for the sentiment I took the set Heard from the Heart and altered the Kindness saying a bit. First I stamped Kindness using my Tangerine Tango Marker then cleaned it and using my Early Espresso marker I added the bottom part that said comes in many forms omitting the rest of my saying. To line this up properly I used my stampinmajig which I finally understand how to use!! LOL! I won't even tell you how long that stayed in my drawer unused and not liked. But boy now that I get it I use it all time!! Happy Stamping!!

Carmen, this is adorable, and great for a swap! Congrats on mastering the SAMJ -- it's an essential item in my stampin' toolbox.

Great card! I don't use my Stamp-a-ma-jig as often as I should, but I really love it when I do!

Love the unique way you used the sentiment stamp! Nice clean and simple (yet striking) card, both the colors and the layout.
