Today I have a card to share using Carta Bella's Merry & Bright collection. I had so much fun mixing things up a bit by pairing different brands together to create one cohesive look. I paired a Hero Arts Sentiment stamp with dies by Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things.
I must say that I am getting a ton of mileage from my Hero Arts Joy To All stamp set this year. For this card I masked off the rest of the surrounding sentiment by covering the unwanted words with scotch tape, then inked it up and removed the tape before stamping. What you're left with is just the one word inked up which is awesome and so easy (I have Betsy Veldman to thank for this tip).
