Pebbles Happy Day Encouragement Cards & Phrase Stickers

Today I have some Pebbles Happy Day cards to share which would be perfect to brighten a friend or family member's day!

These cards were all created with a focus on the sweet sentiments found on Happy Day Phrases & Labels Cardstock Stickers sheet.  Up first I have a card using the darling "Hello" banner stickers on the diagonal, paired with the sweet birdie and bicycle images from the companion icon sticker sheet.   I love that I was able to make this card quickly and yet it turned out to be my daughter's favorite.

My next card uses the short pennant sticker with the word "smile".  I love how the shape of this sticker lends itself well to being lengthened into a longer pennant with the help of a little patterned paper, making it the perfect base for the focal point image of my card!  This card also came together in under 20 minutes with the fun flower bouquet sticker and some epoxy dots.

As soon as I saw the "Insta-Awesome" sticker I knew it would make a great card sentiment for a teen.  To complete the phrase I added the "UR" stickers using the woodgrain thickers from the collection.  A grid design with the Instagram inspired cameras and matching tone-on-tone patterned papers were the perfect embellishments to complete my card.

Up last I thought it would be fun to create a one-of-a-kind paper-pieced wavy background using the "Be You" sticker.  To create some separation between the wavy design and the bottom portion of the card, I temporarily adhered hand-pleated ribbon across the transition and then stitched it into place.

I hope I've inspired you to pull out your supplies to make a card of encouragement for someone special on your heart this week.  Nothing beats getting a good old-fashioned card in the mail when it's least expected.  :)

Make sure to hop over to the Pebbles blog where I share a cool trick on how to create and line-up your paper-pieced backgrounds in a snap every time!
