by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I have a Stamp Focus using the Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set. I will share 2 easy ways on how to use sentiment strips on your cards.

For my first card design, I decided to use a repeated sentiment technique.  This is a versatile way to add a fun element to your cards!

The card is monochromatic, using A Love For Stripes Set A 6×6 Paper Pack for the background.

My second card looks quite different but uses all the same supplies, plus a negative space die-cut from the Mega Hello Die.

This time, the sentiment strip is used as a sub-sentiment and adds a bold statement as it is heat-embossed onto Jet Black Cardstock.

Loved this video. My problem with sentiment strips is determining what color paper strip to use to make the card pop.
