SMILE

 Popping on today with a card that I made to link over at the CAS C&S challenge. I had just received my Altenew Mini Delight: Smile Blooms and Die Set. I love the little double-stamped flower in this new set and thought I would use it for my card. I was a little stumped with how I was going to use the stamp since I only had the Mango Melody paper but not the matching ink. I over at the links from previous CAS sketches posted on their blog to see if something would work and chose this sketch from July 2019. I feel it worked perfectly for what I needed.



The paper, inks, and embossing folder are SU. I stamped the sentiment and flower center with Versafine Onyx Black ink for the sentiment and the flower center. I really like using this ink for sentiments, it produces a crisp image or sentiment. I recently ordered some online from Amazon and was looking through reviews. I'm really glad I did. I came away with a great tip from several people. They had bought the mini cube with a refill. It has been a game-changer for me. It is so much easier to hold the cube instead of the larger pad when stamping. No going back at this point!

That's it for today. I've been sorting, purging, and organizing my craft supplies over the past several weeks. I wish I could say I was done but I am not. So, it's back to doing that a little more today.

Have a great week!
Blessings Bernadette

I love this Bernadette! The strips make a beautiful background for your florals and I love the way you positioned them off centre to leave room for that sweet sentiment. Thank you for coming to play with us at CAS Colours and Sketches this week. Vicky x
