stitching, sequins and alphas make the world go ’round

Hello!

It’s Samantha here today, with a bittersweet post!

I have a fantastic card to share, inspired by an incredible card found on the Sweet Stamp Shop’s Pinterest board! But alas, it’s my final post as a Sweet Stamp Shop Design Team Member…sniff sniff.

First, let’s get on with the cards, and then I will gush about what an amazing, eye-opening, creative and FUN time it’s been as a Sweetie! πŸ™‚

The card I found on Pinterest is so fun and beautiful! It was created by one of my fellow DT members, Nicole Picadura!!! Here is the amazing card:

Yep! Love it! The background is stunning! And I just love the full panel that is off to the side! Not to mention the OutLine Lower Alpha stamp set! One of my favorites ever!

I was especially inspired by the yellows, pinks and love theme!! Here is my first card:

Yay!!! I used the Outline Lower Alpha stamp set to create my own sentiment (thank you Beatles song!)! Β I stamped it in gold delicata ink and then brushed over it with some gold perfect pearls to really make the gold POP! πŸ™‚

I created the background with a stencil and some distress inks randomly colored in. Then I tried my hand at sewing on some flat sequins – eek! My new favorite thing, I have to admit! πŸ™‚

I have one other card that I made, and if you want to see the whole thing, head on over to my blog! πŸ™‚ Β Here is a sneak peek:

It’s a totally different feel! Ha! πŸ™‚

Well Sweet world…it’s been an unbelievable journey, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! It has been such an honor to work alongside some of the most amazing ladies in the industry! I am truly humbled, honored and overwhelmed! How could 6 months have flown by so fast?!

I honestly, can’t WAIT to see the Sweet Stamp Shop continue to grow, evolve and prosper! It’s going to be an exciting year, and I’ll be right there to cheer it on, every step of the way!

Later lovelies!
