You make me smile for Crafting by Designs

Happy Wednesday and thanks so much for visiting!

I was recently invited to be a guest designer for this week's "Crafting by Designs" challenge. Thanks so much for having me,  crafting by designs team!

The challenge this week is Shaped Cards. I knew right away I wanted to use this cute stamp today, but I had planned on using it on a star shaped card. After playing with my design, it just didn't work out as I wanted to, so I went the easy way and made a circle shaped card instead.
I stamped the image on copic blending card and colored using copic markers. Created a mask so I could ink the background using not quite navy ink (SU). Mounted on a white scallop and then yellow designer paper, and then added the sentiment which I tied some twine to. I finished it off with some diecut stars (Whimsy Stamps die), and then adhered it onto my scallop circle card base. 

 Product list:
(both are available in my Etsy *Stamp* shop)
Papers from SU, DCWV, xpress it, Neenah
pierced stacking star die (whimsy stamps)
glitter, twine
copics for coloring
