Drive By Crafts ~ Best Buds!

Hi friends!

I'm up on the Drive By Crafts blog today sharing two delightful cards
using the Paper Smooches 'Best Bud's stamp set.
I adore flower stamp sets and what I love so much about this one is the whimsical
look that it has and the fantastic font ♥

I've used two different mediums - colored pencils and prismacolor markers.
And, something new, I used a mirror image on making the card bases:
One with kraft and one with white cardstock.

First up, for the white card stock base,  I stamped out the flower banner
using Altenew Crisp Black ink, then masked it off with sticky notes,
and then stamping the jar of flowers onto of that.
It's a great way to get layering with your stamps!
This card has "i love you" on it as it's a card that will be for my mom ♥ 
The sequins are from my stash and its added to an A2 kraft card base.

For the next card, I stamped out the same images onto the kraft cardstock
and colored it loosely with colored pencils.

This one is the same but I used another sentiment
 in the set for a thank you card.

Here they are together:

You can find this stamp set from Paper Smooches in the 
Drive By Crafts store.
And there is also the matching die ~ such a sweet deal!

And if I didn't mention it before, shipping is FAST!
And economical!
And if you are going to do some shopping,
there is an amazing opportunity to be entered into the drawing
where you could win a Spellbinders Prizm!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
