Peace & Happiness

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Is it me, or are the weeks just flying by?! I’m up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog today with an inspiration project featuring the new Peace stamp set released in February! You know me… I absolutely love bold colors, so that’s the direction I went with this mini slimline! And this stamp set is perfect for using bold colors!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from Basis Yellow cardstock and Hot Off The Press Flowing Ink patterned paper, and then used a Tonic corner punch to cut off the corners. I stamped the PEACE sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basis 80# White cardstock, colored it with Sharpie Ultra Fine Point markers, and fussy cut the letters. I ran a Memento Tuxedo Black marker around the edges of the letters for a more finished look.

I adhered the letters to the background and then stamped the remaining portion of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink. I added several Darice tiny clear gemstones (colored with a yellow Arteza Y22 alcohol marker) to the letter P for a little interest. I added a couple die cut hearts that I had laying on my desk from another project, and this completed the card.
