Okay so I know this card is super cute already because its PINK, has flowers, has some bling, and says the word sprinkles in the greeting! Love it! Now let me know tell you how to create this amazing card!

Supplies Needed: Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Scrap Paper, Watercolor Paper or regular cardstock, Sponge Dauber, Blender Pens, or a Maker

I used the Flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack for my sample but you could really use any punch image. Punch the image from a piece of scrap paper! This is not your stencil! For the sample above, I used Watercolor Paper and my Blender Pens to get the look! You could use regular cardstock and a marker or your SPONGE DAUBERS! You know how I love my sponge daubers. I then moved the stencil all over the paper for a random look (some falling off the edges or in the corners). Also, I used my sponge daubers for the edge of the greeting just to add a little color! How simple is that? So you may be asking, why can’t you just punch the image in any color of cardstock for the same look? You can most certainly do that as well. It would give a more textured look because each punched image would be raised up! So many fabulous possibilities!!! Here is another sample created by Vel at one of my stamp classes!!!!

I love the colors together! So beautiful and the Daffodil Delight really pops and brightens the card up! This card is sure to brighten anyone’s day! We both used the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set for our greetings! Both cards have a coordinating greeting on the inside as well! I hope you try this out with some of your punches and leave a comment down below or send me your photos! I would love to hear and see what you come up with!

Happy Stampin’
