Tomorrow is Galentine's Day! You know, that completely made-up holiday where we celebrate our besties, the gals who are by our sides through it all? Last night, I had a YouTube Galentine's party and share some fun cards to send to our gal pals. Normally, my blog posts usually use the same stamps, the same papers, the same layout, or the same fun fold. But today's cards combine a whole bunch of different stamps, papers, and accessories! These are bright, fun cards you can send to your bestie to thank them for all they do or just put a smile on their face. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.

Cocktails & You Card Design
Adulting is hard! How would we ever get through it without our besties by our side? And maybe a cocktail - whether that's diet coke, lemonade, or wine! This card has all the glam!
You'll want to head over to YouTube to see how I created the mirror image of the cocktail glass from the Nothing's Better Than stamp set. I cut the sentiment with the coordinating dies and the Playful Alphabet dies from the rainbow glimmer paper and added a strip of the glimmer paper on the side. The Magenta Madness cardstock is embossed with the Absolutely Argyle 3D embossing folder. I added a label cut with the Wild Rose dies for the sentiment.

Hey Chick Card Design
A couple of wild and crazy chicks are hanging out on this card using the Hey Chick stamp set. I mimicked the black background of the Flower & Field patterned paper on the sentiment block by using black cardstock and Flirty Flamingo letters cut with the Playful Alphabet dies. The chicks are stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

This darling donkey looks like he is laughing his head off! I love this sentiment because it's so true - math is hard! I've paired the Darling Donkey stamp set with another Sale-A-Bration 2021 freebie, the Paper Flowers patterned paper. The donkey was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Gray Granite Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. She's on a piece of Basic White cardstock cut with the stitched Shapes dies. I tied some Night of Navy twin around the front from the Well Suited suite. The Basic White cardstock in the back is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. There is definitely a little bit of everything on this card!
