A New Stamp Set

Happy New Year friends! Big Squishy Hugs to you!

A Colorful Life Design's January 2023 Release included a new stamp set. This is the second one for the shop and it's a really good one. Called Oodles there are so many scenarios for these sentiments:
Before I go further, please use my discount code AnitaFan10 (10% off your entire order, excluding bundles) if you wish to purchase from A Colorful Life Designs.  Mary Kay de la Fuente is the one woman who runs the company, designs and creates each stencil. Let's support small USA businesses! There are hundreds of styles...something for everyone.
For the card below I used no line watercoloring with Penny Black's Gentle Thoughts stamp set. "Forever Besties" from the Oodles Stamp Set seemed a perfect sentiment.
For the following card I stamped and white heat embossed the Big Squishy Hugs sentiment over and over to create my own background. The stamp is from StampinBella Curvy Girl Boy Mom.  All watercolored with Daniel Smith's 238 Dot Watercolor cards. I am a lunchtime colorer and these cards make it so easy to carry back and forth to work. The rectangle is cut with Wonky Stitch Rectangles by Pretty Pink Posh.
Love You So Much was perfect with this Penny Black stamp called Love You. Again, watercolored and the decorative border was created with Whimsy Stamps' Festive Edger Die Set for these next 2 cards. I picked them up over the holidays when there were great sales.
The Multi Dots stencil was perfect (IMO) for the background on my popcorn card. Just ink-blended a soft blue through the stencil.
I used Waffle Flower's Popcorn Die-n-Stencil for the popcorn box and the cute popcorn-eating kitten is from C.C. Designs called Cat Kinda Day. Of course, the sentiment is from our new Oodles stamp set!
BoHo Heart Stencil has very thin lines and Pixie Spray is highly recommended.
Here I offset the BoHo Heart Stencil and used a pretty pretty pink for ink blending. And our Oodles sentiment!
Heart Surround is such a beautiful stencil:
Here I used it with a beautiful blue (ink-blended) and added a white heart frame. Of course, our Oodles stamp sentiment! The cool border is from Spellbinders called Fluted Classic Rectangles. I love texture around the edges of my cards!
