You're So Sweet


I found this stamped image in my box of doo-dads but I have no idea who makes it. I'm thinking it may be a High Hopes design, but I can't be sure. I colored it with Copics and made a herringbone background from snippets of cardstock strips to make it colorful for a youngster's card. The background was embossed with a SU! decorative dots ef and I'm not really sure if the sentiment was computer generated or stamped - because that was in my doo-dad box too! I often print/stamp duplicates and if I don't use them, they get tossed into this 12x12 tub of elements that are found and used later on.

I'm sharing this with the Shopping our Stash SOS#286 which has a theme of Fantastic Beasts.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your herringbone background, the embossing remember me the Lego's toys and it's just perfect for young people, I think! Fun image and great use of your scrap strips!

Such a cute image! (...and well-colored, I must say!) The background made from snippets then embossed steals the show, though! Yes: perfect for a youngster's card. We are glad you dug into your box of snippets and played with Shopping Our Stash this week!

Great snippets card and a fabulous image. Love the bright colours.

I too stamp duplicates and toss them in a sentiments drawer that is part of my Michaels white stacked storage box system. i also store stamped images and die cuts as they are so handy to make card kits from to take to the lake or to a crop.
