Today I get to share something I made with the new Bold Buzzwords set. Bold Buzzwords is another fabulous sentiment set featuring Kim's fun handwriting and this time the sentiments are big and bold enough to take center stage.

Supplies:
Cardstock: (gray) American Crafts, (gold foil) Chickaniddy Crafts, Vellum: The Paper Co., Patterned paper: (Date Night 6x6 pad) Chickaniddy Crafts, Stamps: (love, hearts: Bold Buzzwotrds set) Paper Smooches, Ink: (gold, pink) Colorbox Pigment ink, Embossing Powder: American Crafts, Washi Tape: My Mind's Eye, Die: (Borders 2) Paper Smooches
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

See what I mean? Gotta love that big, bold "love"! I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold onto vellum, then I added some hearts (also included in the Bold Buzzwords set) and embossed them in pink.

OK, time for you to visit JJ's blog now. I'm sure she has something amazing to share!

Have fun and good luck!
Heidi

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write additional on this topic, it may possibly not be a taboo subject but typically individuals aren't enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers..Cardsharing Server
