Great Impressions Stamps | Wishing You Laughter

It was only a matter of time before sequins took over the paper crafting world. Oh yes. I am on board with this trend. Sequins are cheap, come in a plethora of beautiful colors, and are easy to apply. Many, many years ago I purchased several hundred thousand sequins in a variety of colors and I love pulling them out to use on my cards. My favorites are definitely the plain old clear sequins in small, medium, and large. I use a tiny dot of clear liquid adhesive to adhere them to my card, and so far that method has worked like a charm. 

I used two Great Impressions Stamps on my card: Wishing You and Twirly Background (one of my faves!):

(Supplies - Stamps: (Great Impressions) Twirly Background and Wishing You. Ink: (PTI) Simply Chartreuse, Melon Berry, Hibiscus Burst, Smokey Shadow, and Hawaiian Shores. Cardstock: (PTI) White, Hibiscus Burst. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Simply Chartreuse Patterns Pack. Twine: (Stampin' Up!). Other: Sequins.)

A bright a cheerful card to match the fun sentiment. And this color combo is going into my "must use again" file. 

Have you jumped on the sequins trend yet?

Have a great week!
