Send Bright Wishes to Someone Who Needs Them!

Send Bright Wishes to someone who needs them!  As cardmakers, we love to brighten a loved one’s day with a handmade card, and the Bright Wishes stamp set has the perfect image and sentiments to let them know how much we care.  You’ll find this awesome Stamp Set in the new 2017 Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!

If you love to color, you’ll have to indulge in this stamp set!  I always feel like I’m back in kindergarten, focused on coloring and letting the world do whatever the heck it is going to do!  I can always catch up when I’m finished coloring.  Get out your Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painter, and get ready to create some magic!

You’ll love the timeless sentiments in this set, and find yourself reaching for them for many occasions.  I have a dear friend with some health challenges, and made the above card for her.  I might have to send a birthday card to my sister with “never too old to wish.”   You’ll create cards for weddings, anniversaries, illness, sympathy, and just plain old good wishes.

What if you’re not up to coloring all that detail?  Here’s a very simple option:  Create a watercolor wash.  It only takes a minute, and you can use the Heat Tool to shorten the drying time.  Then stamp the image on top of it.

I’m already imagining other options as well!  Do you have any good ideas?  Leave me a comment if you do.  Or better yet, email or text me a photo of your card. or 505-265-4727.  I’ll post it here and on Facebook if you give me permission.

Have fun imagining ways you can send Bright Wishes to someone who needs them!
