Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight - sentiments

For this fortnight on The Spotlight Challenge, Jenni has set the challenge and she'd like to see creations where the focus is on the sentiment - so the sentiment must be the dominant part of the card.


I've had this Paper MakeUp sentiment stamp for AGES - I bought it just because I liked it, but then realised I couldn't really think of a use for it!  So it's sat there unused until now.  I've stamped it onto ivory linen card using 'bamboo' memento ink, and then used 'new sprout' memento to stamp a Kanban tree - I wanted this to be paler so that the sentiment was still the focus.  Mounted the stamped panel on a piece of core'dinations from my scraps, and that's it - super simple!

Off for a little hop around your blogs before I have to pick the boys up from school/ nursery...

    Lovely stamp too and I really like the CAS treatment after all the fussy, over the top cards of recent times (much as I like those too!).
    Super card Hunni!
