Double the Smiles - Hits & Highlights

Hello, all! It's time for the second Hits & Highlights designer challenge being hosted on the My Favorite Things Blog

If you’re building a supply of stamps and Die-namics, or simply looking to add even more versatility to your existing collection, our line of essentials is the perfect place to start. This line features a sentiment for every occasion in an enviable mix of classic greetings and unique, smile-inducing phrases. A clean font in a compact but legible size allows you to combine the phrases with existing sets in your collection and pairs perfectly with our essential Die-namics — Cover-Ups and sentiment strips designed to spotlight your sentiments to perfection.

I opted to use All Smiles, which has some great essential sentiments in it! For the "follow-up" portion of my sentiments, I stamped one on an Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip, and the other on the Slanted Sentiment Strip, which accommodates all the sentiments in the "essential" line. 

I stamped one 5.5" X 4/25" panel with the gorgeous Rustic Wildflowers stamp set and cut it in half to create 2 unique cards!

Stamps: All Smiles, Rustic Wildflowers
Die-namics: Blueprints 24, Slanted Sentiment Strips
Ink: Poppy, Wild Cherry, Sour Apple, Jellybean Green, Peach Bellini, Coral Crush, Orange Fizz, Orange Zest, Persimmon, Lemon Chiffon, Daffodil, Brilliance Graphite Black

My card today features the amazing snowman from the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics. I just love building snowmen. I added 3 trees to the scene, and filled the shaker pouch with Diamond Dust. Tip: wipe the inside and outside of your pouch with a dryer sheet to prevent static. I used the Snowfall Background to emboss snow on the back layer of my card. Tip: To have the snowman's scarf line up properly using patterned paper, cut it three times with the pattern "straight" on each straight edge, then layer and dissect as needed. 



Here is one more look at the 3 cards I created using the Snow Globe Card Kit.
