DSCN2059Hi Everyone! Here's a Reason to Smile card. I'm smiling for a couple of reasons. First, this stamp set was only $5 🙂 See Reason to Smile promotion for more info. Second, I got myself out of a collector mode and into a creator mode!  Do you ever buy items then never use them, but collect them? I think many of us do that! So this card uses the Naturals White Card Stock 102316 and the Window Sheets 114323 for the sentiments. I've had the paper for a l…ooo…nnn..gg (long) time and was saving it for who only knows what. I spied it and though Hey Deebee…get using it! I absolutely love this card stock. While it called white, it's more of an off-white with fiber-like flecks.

I stamped the images from Reason to Smile on a 3 3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Naturals White then cut along the 3-3/4" side to make (3) three 1 1/4" panels.

Next, stamp the sentiment from Word Play (wood mount 120308, clear mount 120651) with StazOn Black 101406. StazOn is permanet ink and a must when stamping on window sheets. If you use the classic ink, it will smug since it's a waterback ink. Adhere sentiment sheet with Mini Glue 103683 dots. While you almost cannot see the glue dot…I still can LOL! so a little flower to cover the glue dots in the corners is just the trick.
