Reason #2 that you NEED this stamp set.  (See yesterday's post for Reason #1) Here's a fun kids birthday. 

Seriously, quick and easy and guess what…I embossed that Happy Birthday!  I know, embossing is one of the magical moments of stamping but it's kinda of like visiting the ocean…You know, you love the water and the waves but you have sand in every crevice and it stays with you for weeks.  Embossing powder is like that too…magical but the residue clings to everything and I hate the gritty feel of it.  That being said, I resolve to emboss more.  It really is magical!  Deal with the sand…it's worth it, right?


  • Stamps:  Oh Whale, (you want it!) Sassy Salutations (how fitting!)
  • Inks:  Pacific Point
  • CS:  Pacific Point, Whisper White, Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Paper
  • Misc:  Clear Embossing Powder, Happy Whale Clear Sizzlet, Pacific Point Ribbon

Tidbits:  On of my favorite things about the new ink pads, outside of the fact that they stamp so smoothly, is that you can emboss with them when you work quickly.  They are a tad more slow to dry and that works in our favor when embossing.  Try it..

So head over to my online store and purchase this the time I've finished sharing all the samples from Diva Day, your order should be arriving and you will have several cards for inspiration.
