My sister and I kind of stalked the SweetStamps booth at the Heirloom Paper Arts Festival in Lawrenceville, GA, back in February. ;) We didn't mean to... it just sort of happened. First it was all the stamps and ink pads and embossing powders and dies... then it was the product/technique demos. We'd stand there and watch for a while, then we'd walk around to other booths, but we always found our way back to the SweetStamps booth... almost like a magnetic field was pulling us in! Hahaha! Of course we bought a number of products used in several of the demos we watched, and I have to say that I've been extremely pleased with everything - from stamps, ink pads, dies and embossing powder to parchment crafting tools and accessories. The list goes on! I've also ordered from their online store and their customer service is impeccable along with lightening fast shipping!
I wanted to keep my card simple and elegant. I stamped the absolutely gorgeous SweetStamps "In Her Easter Bonnet" on ivory cardstock, matted it on black cardstock and used just a few pale pink embellishments. What a beauty! ;)
I stamped the inside sentiment with SweetStamps "Have A Beautiful Day" on the ivory cardstock, matted it on black cardstock and affixed it to a strip of a pink Memory Box Piestra Tile die cut.
