CAS in 5 or less :)

Hi there! I'm back again today with another CAS card.  This is the card I'll be showing you today!! :)

The stamp set I used today was Chalkboard Sign. Such an adorable set!

Today I wanted to make my own background not using a background stamp. It's so easy to do. All I did was pick a couple smaller stamps and stamped them over and over in a pattern for my background.

This is what the cardstock looked like after I was finished stamping. I realized there was a mess up on one of the hearts but I didn't worry too much knowing I was going to cover it up.

I then took a scrap piece of paper that worked well with the colors I was using and heat embossed the sentiment on it. Afterward, I cut a notch up the middle and down to the corners to make a banner. 

I realized that it was too plain. So I added another little heart from the set and of course white enamel dots! It was then adhered using foam dots! Lastly, I rounded the corners!

Fun, right!? I challenge you to try this technique using little stamps and making them into something big!

So did you hear Sweet Stamp Shop is looking for a new Design Team!? There are so many great incentives to working with Sweet Stamp Shop. Find all the information HERE.
