Today is the last day to participate in the October Stamps-in-the-Mail so I thought I would share one more idea with you for one of the featured stamp sets.  Healing Hugs is perfect to make cards for any occasion.  Even though it comes with greetings for “get well” cards, simply grab a different verse from another set and you can make any occasion cards.

Today’s card is a super simple layout design that I used for all 3 cards and then simply changed the “words” and the colors on each.  Changing the colors sure makes the card feeling totally different!

As I have been trying to do with each card I share, here is a video giving you lots of little tips.  This card uses a technique called MASKING that is super simple but makes a big difference.  Make sure to watch the video to see how to get the perfect placement of the leaves using masking.

If you are reading this in your email, the video might now show up, so just click below to go to YouTube and watch it.  While there, make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any of my videos!

The greetings for this card came from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

Just Change the Colors

This one has a much softer feel with the Petal Pink roses.
