Hello!  I just love making encouragement cards and the new Cheerful Pals stamp set is perfect for these type of cards.    I started off with stamping the images from Cheerful Pals onto Premier Polar White cardstock and coloring them with my Copic markers.   I love the little cat cheerleader!  Isn't she adorable!  


I die cut the images out with with Cheerful Pals Confetti Cuts.  To build my scene, I used the largest die from the Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts and ink blended with my Distress Oxides.   The grassy border was made with the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts.   

 I added some clouds using the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts.   Instead of a sentiment on the front of the card, I used the banner and star from the Cheerful Pals stamp set and added to the panel with a mini clip and a heart border from the new Hearts Confetti Cuts that had been trimmed down.  

 I then layered my scene on top of a kraft panel that had been die cut with the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel.   I just love the stitching details that this adds to a panel.   To finish it off, I added some jewels and used my white gel pen to add some details to the images.  

I hope that you have a beautiful day and if you need a little encouragement, here you go.... YOU are awesome!!!!
