I love alphabet stamps and dies, and adding words and sentiments to my cards.
So I was excited to get my hands on this alphabet stamp set.
It turned out to be a little larger than I expected,
but I think it's going to be used a lot :-)

I started with a white card panel and added my stripes using an Altenew  stencil with spiced marmalade Distress Ink.
Then I held my breath as I stamped the individual letters for my sentiment.
Some of them came out a little patchy, so I just filled them in with a fine black marker.
I definitely need to get my hands on one of those stamping platforms.

Then I mounted my panel onto black card, with foam tape and attached it to my base card.

Caroline this is so great ... not familiar with that sentiment, but it sure does make me smile! I may just be borrowing it, when the occasion fits!
