Happy Everything: A Mash Up

What happens when I have two stamps and can't decide which one to work with?  I use them both and mash them up!

So Grateful

This card uses a combination of two new Penny Black releases: Kind Words and Chalkboard Grateful.  Plus, a new Creative Die Perched.

They are all from their Happy Everything catalog.

Here's how the stamps were "mashed" together:

Step 1: Cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base and attached a small strip of Fall Festival to the top.

Step 2: Die cut Perched from Clear Skies cardstock and adhere to the top portion of the cardstock.

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment from Kind Words below the die cut in Onyx Black VersaFine.

Step 4: On a separate piece of white cardstock stamp a portion of Chalkboard Grateful in Morocco Memento Luxe.  Trim the piece and adhere across the middle of the previously stamped sentiment.  This will cover the words "Thank You".

Step 5: Attached the finished artwork to the front of the card base with 3-D Foam Tabs.

A great way to give your favorite images another fun look.
