Feeling Stressed Out? Take a Break!

I’m very excited to introduce you to our “Take a Break” stamp set.  This set is so adorable.  It is great for creating ‘just-because’ cards to your loved ones.  I just love images of the pretty little mermaid enjoying a cup of coffee, surfing on the web  eating chocolate and a slice of pizza… 😋

I started by preparing an A2 size card base using our double sided Cool Metallic – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. take a break blog image2

I used a flowery die-cut from Sizzix to cut out three windows on my card base.take a break blog image3

I then stamped out my mermaid images and the champagne and glass image using my Misti stamp tool, and color them in with my favourite Copic markers.  Be creative when colouring her hair!  I love using purples and blues!

Look how cute the mermaid looks!!

I stuck the images onto the inside of the card like so using foam tape, so in the spots where they will show up from the front through those flowery shaped windows.

I then stamped out my sentiments “Pamper Yourself My Friend” and “Take a Break Enjoy Life!” with white embossing power and heat setting them and gluing it onto the front of the card and the inside bottom right corner of the card as well.

Finally I decided to add a pink Smooch next to my sentiment “Learn to RELAX, you deserve the best”.
