For my SWEET friend card- Pretty Cute stamps reveal

I'm so excited to share with you some of the cutest stamps that I've had the privilege of using.. Although I haven't used stamps all that much,  I've always been keen to learn how to create fun cards etc with them and now was my chance :)  I got to work with the new "Just chill" stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps and I had so much fun with them and actually, I had a hard time choosing which ones to use..LOL

Here are what the stamps look like:
pretty sweet right? :)

and here is the card I created using this stamp set:
The card measures 4x6 and I don't own any fancy markers (yet), so I decided to use these fun prints from this cute paper set I've been holding onto and I stamped the image of the Popsicle onto the backside of the printed paper, then cutting them out with scissors.. the only reason why I didn't stamp directly onto the print side is cause I can not cut a straight line to save to my life :) LOL
this way, they look flawless right?..

I also added a sentiment to the inside of the card:

and I can not express how much I love these papers..
Every once in a while we create something we are truly proud of and this card is one of my all time favorites.. 

How about some close ups:

added a punched trim along with twine and ribbon, which is underneath the number trim..
I added the popsicles to the card using foam tape.. I love that 3D look ..

Not sure if you can see in this photo, but I added some glossy accents to the popsicles.. Just another form of texture I wanted to add to this card..  The sentiment is stamped onto the printed paper, then I cut it, inked the edges with distress ink and finally attached it using foam tape.. 
 I love adding layers and texture to my projects :)
