I took Ticonderoga pencils that I happened to have in my stash and covered them in Martha Stewart Multi-Surface acrylic paint. I think the hardest thing was picking out the colors!

Don't you love the green paint...yes, the one with the pink in the middle. Just keeping
things real and showing you how I managed to mix up my paints.

I used washi tape to mask off the metal band and waited about an hour in between coats of paint. I did 2 coats. After they were totally dried, I used my Black Sharpie and just printed out different fun sayings. That's it, such an easy and fun project!I

I embellished a kraft bag with the Happy Mail stamp set. I used the Simple Stories - Let's Party Paper pad from the Stamped & Sealed Craft Box // Let's Party kit! These will go postal to my college girl. There will definitely be a coffee gift card tucked in the kraft bag too!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

Stamped & Sealed Craft Box // Let's Party
?

Right at Home Stamped & Sealed Craft Box // Let's Party

I used the Sweet Birthday stamp set, the Simple Stories Let's Party paper pad + the
"Birthday Cake" sequin mix!

I love the sentiment, don't you?! It is definitely the truth (wink). I picked a aqua card
base to contrast with the strip of Let's Party paper. The cake has been colored with
Zig Clean Color Markers to tie in the overall cover scheme.

Time to Celebrate Card by Kymona

Hello everyone!!  Kymona, here today to show you how to achieve a clean and simple stamping look. To achieve this look, all you have to do is highlight the stamped sentiment or image.

Take a look:

See how powerful this clean and simple card is!!

Here is how I created this card:

  • Cut the white card base to a 4 by4 card size.  
  • Cut the Simple Stories Let's Party Pattern Paper to a 4 by4 size.
  • Adhere the pattern paper to the card base using Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
  • To create the star highlight, used the largest and the second largest Lawn Fawn Puffy Star Stackables to cut out a star out of The Ton's Adhesive Glitter Fine Gold paper.
  • Once the star is cut, them adhere the star to the edge of the card front.  
  • Cut off the excess.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Right At Home Sweet Birthday stamp set in the middle of the star.
  • Nice and easy!! The sentiment really pops inside of the star.

I love how this card turned out. What do you think?  I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by!
