So Kind

So Kind is my sample for today's Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers which is to use a background stamp. 

This is an example of a card I am not fussed about. I love the colours, except the red/pink is not vibrant enough to keep up with the other colours. But, I do like the idea of this card, so I will do it again but handle the colours differently next time.

The background stamp is heat embossed using a new to me embossing powder from Nuvo, which I am in love with. Once embossed it leaves sparkles throughout the embossed area and looks fabulous. So do try it out, you won't be disappointed. Once I finished the embossing I die cut my piece with the wonky rectangle die. For the sentiment, I stamped and die cut the "you" in a rich blue, and the rest of the sentiment is stamped in orange and die cut using my fishtail labels. Both of the sentiments are attached using foam dots. And, not to disappoint, I added a few sequins to finish up.

Thank you for visiting today.
