Heart2Heart Challenges: Round and Round

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my blog, this week's Heart2Heart Challenges theme is "Round and Round", my project this week features the Sugar Rush Patterned Paper and the Short and Sweet Stamp Set.  I also used some of the Sea Glass Glitter paper to help the round shapes pop out.  Since the Thank You sentiment is a mini stamp, I thought it would be a great idea to stamp it multiple times on a larger circle so that it can be more visible.  I also used the Clear Shimmer Brush over the Thank You sentiment to give it a little sparkle.




Here's a list of the tools and products used to create this card:
  • Short and Sweet Stamp Set (A1189)
  • Sugar Rush Paper Packet (X7215B)
  • White Cardstock
  • Sea Glass Glitter Paper
  • Sugar Rush Washi Pack
  • Sea Glass Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
  • Clear Shimmer Brush
  • Trimmer
