You've Just Gotta Smile!

Isn't this the most fun stamp?? Doesn't it make YOU smile? It does me! It's one of the fab new creations from Lori Renn. I've gotten to know Lori a bit since we're both here on the Shimmerz DT and when I found out she had her own stamps -- Oooooo lala! Who could resist?

In honor of her stamps' recent release, I pulled out some bright and colorful paper, fun ribbon, a giant flower and some bling!

There's not a ton to this card! I wanted the "Smile" to take center stage in a cheery way! I stamped using Orange Vivid! And then, using a fine tip brush, I painted over top the ink with Marigold Shimmerz. I wanted that baby to sparkle! And.... it does!

Check it out!
Add a little punched flower, paper pierce the edges and mat it all up! What fun it was to create with one of Lori's creations! I know this will be a great "go to" stamp when I just want to send a little sunshine in the mail or with a gift! Her entire collection can be found HERE! And for all things sparkly - of course - you can visit the Shimmerz Shop HERE!
