Reason To Smile

I am loving this stamp set, Reason to Smile.  One reason is it is a two-step stamp and I love two-steppers!  Another reason is it is only $5!!!  Super deal!  Here are several cards I made with the set (I really thought I had already shared them but don't see them.)

This first one is the one we did in club this week.  It uses the Emboss Resist technique. I stamped the flower with Versa Mark ink and embossed it in white.  Then, using daubers, rubbed Daffodil Delight on the flower; Cajun Craze in the center; and a little Island Indigo around the edges.  

Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Summer Smooches DSP, Whisper White
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, Reason to Smile
Ink:  Island Indigo, Versa Mark, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Island Indigo Ribbon; Big Shot; Labels Framelits; Itty Bitty Banners Framelits; Daubers, White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun; Fancy Fan Embossing Folder

This card is a very simple one.  I stamped the flower in Elegant Eggplant and used a yellow marker to color in the bottom part of the flower.  Then I used the Color Spritzer to spritz a little color onto the card.

Cardstock:  Sahara Sand, Eleg. Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant
Stamp:  Reason to Smile
Access:  Color Spritzer, SU Markers, Eleg. Eggplant Dotted Ribbon; Labels Framelit

This (below) is one of the Shoebox Swaps from last Saturday.  The two-step stamping is done with Black Ink, Basic Gray Ink and Daffodil Delight.

 And the final card is also a very simple one to make.  I stamped the flowers in black ink and used Calypso Coral ink to color the flower - just making a few brush strokes and not coloring in the whole flower. 

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Gumball Green, Calypson Coral DSP (from paper stack), Early Espresso
Ink:  Calypso Coral, Black
Stamp:  Reason to Smile
Access:  Finishing Touches Edgelits, Gumball Green Ribbon, Calypso Coral (retired SAB) ribbon, markers

So now you have a Reason to Smile this weekend!
