Happy Saturday, everybody! It has been a very long time since I posted a Saturday Stamp Day video so I am thrilled to finally share a new one. I finished my exams this week and I will be receiving my results this week, so fingers crossed! Unfortunately, I won’t be having a lot of time to recover from exams since I’ll have to start working on a project for college for the next two weeks. Yikes. Anyway, the good news is I will have a week off after the project is finished. 🙂

For today’s video, I played with a lot of products from some of my favorite companies including Create A Smile, The Ton and Els Brigé Design (that’s a Belgian stamp company!). Now let me explain something before you may think the sentiment on my card is spelled wrong, lol! The sentiment is spelled “hoera’ because that’s the Dutch word for “hooray”.

I started out with the Lovely Critters stamp set from Create A Smile Stamps. I love that the designer and owner from Create A Smile, incorporated at least one heart in each critter! How cute is that?! I decided to use the snail and color it with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Next, I stamped a bold flower background using the Fresh Cut Roses stamp set from The Ton with their brand new Couture Color ink pads. You can get the inks I used individually or in a bundle!

You rarely see me using Dutch sentiments even though I speak Dutch and live in Belgium. However, since I was in need of some more birthday cards for friends and family, I used a beautiful sentiment stamp from Els Brigé Design. I recommend this set set to anybody who speaks Dutch because these sentiments are so pretty! I heat embossed the greeting with Parma Violet embossing powder from Wow! since that matched with the purple roses.

To add some more interest, I stamped some hearts here and there and of course a couple of sequins to double up the sparkle and shine. Overall, I am very glad with the way this card turned out! It just screams SPRING to me which is great because spring is my favorite season. 🙂 Also, these flowers better watch out because snails + flowers = trouble. They love to eat the dahlias in our garden overnight!

That’s it for now! Thanks so much for taking your time to watch my video and maybe even read my blog post! Big hugs all of you and I’ll see you soon! xo
