A Simple Note with Countless Sayings 1

This card started out life as a Clean and Simple Saturday card...but I got a little carried away :) 

This one went a bit sideways on me, but I glad it did because I LOVE the way it turned out!

The stamp set I used here, Countless Sayings I, is a new photopolymer stamp set from Stampin' Up! I have to let you know that I am a huge fan of the photopolymer stamps. They cling well and make stamping straight very easy since you can see right through the stamp! I was so very pleased when Stampin' Up! announced recently that they will be manufacturing their photopolymer stamps at the Kanab facility...this sounds to me like they are here to stay and will have more offerings. Can't wait!!

I had so much fun making these cute little banners with the new punch that will be offered during Sale-a-bration! So easy to make a perfect banner, just punch, punch, punch! and you're done! I applied a line of Sticky Strip to the back of my cardstock, adhered my ribbon, and then added another layer of Sticky Strip and then just place my banners. Easy Peasy! Are you making your shopping list yet? All of the new Sale-a-bration products are fab-u-lous!

I discoverd that I do not own the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (a situation I will have to remedy!). I tried the Small Heart Punch, but it was too small. Then I tried the Full Heart Punch, but it was too big. Stay with me here...

I poked around in my stash a bit and discovered that the Circle Card Thinlits Dies has a heart die that was just right! There are lots of accessories in this Thinlits Dies set, please give it a second look!

I embossed the "I" and the "You" in white and used coordinating cardstock for the hearts. They make me so happy!

A coordinating envelope and this card is ready to go! I hope you've enjoyed my project today and give the new photopolymer stamps a try :) Your comments keep me motivated...I would love to hear from you! Thanks and have a super day!
