Free Sentiments

The other day I was browsing tinternet when I saw a sentiment stamp set that I really liked the look of. However, the sentiments themselves were not what I thought I would have much cause or need to use, so I thought I would try to make some in a similar vein but with themes to suit ME!
With thanks to Hannelie for helping me sort these out!

For our friends across the pond... we DO have 2 ells in marvellous!

I am hoping that these are in a format that you will be able to use should you wish to. I'm sure someone will inform me if they are not.
I rattled off a few cards to illustrate them and here they are!



For these last two I inked and spritzed the inside of embossing folders with Distress Ink before running the card through the machine. I think it makes quite an interesting effect. Both folders are from Sizzix.
The sunny one is for the challenge at Addicted to CAS
The sentiments are cut with either Die-namics Pierced stax or Lil Inkers Stitched ovals.

  12. Chrissie, I think I have to spell it yet a third way to tell you how I feel about this post: your works of art are marvelllllllllllous!!! You are so generous to make and give the sediments away AND to put so much inspiration in ONE post! These cards would get me through two months of blogging and I would think I was the cat's meow when I did so!! I was spoiled rotten with your Saturday post and now this!

    I can't remember if we've talked about this: do you have a board at Pinterest where you have uploaded your cards so I can follow that? If not, I'm going to have to make a new board on my Pinterest account just for your cards! Let me know. Hugs, Darnell

  18. Hi Chrissie,

    Love all your great cards...and the sentiments you've made are fabulous. Do you happen to know what font you used for the script words? I have something in mind for a scrapbook page and would love to use that font.

    Hopefully, I'll get back to participating in the weekly challenge soon...just can't seem to get my act together lately.

    I do follow the blog and watch all the beautiful creations!

    Thanks so much
