I love this campaign as you can create fun quick cards like shown above.  I decided to play around with the set and also create a card using one of the stamp sets. So lets get on with the art works. First I have a card that I designed using Create Kindness ~ Friend CC1149

Happy Birthday ~ Create Kindness Friend ~ Happy ~ CatScrapbooking.comI masked off the “friend” and then stamped the flowers on a strip.  I love coloring with the Shin Han Markers.  I used the new thin cuts to cut the “happy” out of Glacier and added a birthday from Finding Words D1646.

Here is how I designed my Create with Kindness Cards.

Choose Happy

This stamp set is very whimsical and be fun addition to any card or layout.  When I was brainstorming for an inspiration the first thing that came to mind was a tag.  Then I went to the Close to My Heart how to book,  Wishes, and was instantly inspired by the card on the cover. I flipped to page 97 and got to work.

Choose Happy SOTM CTMH ~catsrapbooking.comI actually combined two of the sentiments on the stamp set “you’re special” and “this day”.  Using a masking technique I was able to combine them and create “You’re Special Day”.  I colored the frame using our new ShinHan markers to make it really pop. ***I realize I have made a faux pas ~ My card is not grammatically correct.  I will try and make the change as soon as I can. ***
