Always Move Forward Card

I've got just one card for you today using the upcoming Papertrey Ink Release The A-Mazing Stamp Set. With the weather turning warm, spring finally arriving, and three little kids who would (thankfully) rather be running around outside, yesterday got away from me a bit:). No regrets...which sort of goes with my sentiment today, now that I think about it.

I'm all about the encouragement card. I think because they come unexpectedly when a person needs it the most and therefore has the most impact. And who doesn't need a little encouragement every now and again?:)

I used the new Simply Framed, also being released this month to add some interest to my main panel. If you are a fan of Fabulous Frames, you are going to LOVE this one. I've used it three times so far on my release projects, I dig it so much. My circular maze is stamped slightly off the main panel in Pure Poppy and my maze path stamped in True Black.

A thing to note on the can rotate them any which way you want so the starting point works best for your design. Sweetness. Here I have it starting in the upper right.

Here is another sentiment from The A-Mazing Stamp Set. I'm finding  lots of uses for the Building Block dies. This treatment of stamping a sentiment split up on individual strips is one I like a lot and the Building Block dies make that a cinch. Also loving Tropical Teal ink of Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

Be back tomorrow with more. And I have the Make It Monday video tomorrow using BB: Random Stripes, Special Delivery, and Bubble Talk. Fun!
