Hello & Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
In case you missed it from yesterday, I was up on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog. I’ve been featuring 1 stamp set – 2 ways.
This time around I was super pleased with the results!
So I’ve always gravitated to sentiment sets and have, like everyone else, had a fascination with the handwritten look:
Okay, I should also add that I’m still smitten with the chalkboard look.
I’ve been really enjoying the trend with the dark/black background with the calligraphy text
You get the idea, eh?
I’ve been hoarding my blooms but seriously LOVE the pop of color. Whaddya think? The birthday has been heat embossed with Paper Source’s Picante, my new FAV.
Up next is one that I’m especially pleased with:
This is going to a former co-worker of mine that finally popped the question to his long time girl friend and he is now happily engaged.
I’ve got to get some massive bonus points for designing a male engagement card!
The congratulations is from the Sweet Stamp Shop’s Easily Distracted set. Since the font is so petite, rather than heat embossing it (it would likely become not-so-readable), I decided to stamp it with Gold Delicata. That stuff rocks.
There you have it….2 cards – 2 ways
feminine vs. masculine.
FEEDBACK PLEASE: What do you think of this font size? Too Small? Just Right? I generally use the ginormous font for my aging eyes but am thinking of changing it up!
Thanks so much for stoppin’ by!

Yes, yes, mad props for a male engagement card … it's just perfect, Amy!! I'm good with the smaller font like you have here. I think it's what I use so I'm used to it.
