Clean and Simple Saturday - A Simple Love Note

Good morning and Happy Saturday to you! Here's a fun card that can be whipped up in a jiffy!

This card was inspired by TWO challenges, I know, that's A LOT for such a simple card right? lol The layout was inspired by by the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch #63 and the color combination was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge:


The main image can be found in the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and it has a coordinating framelit! Perfect! I love coordinating products! The sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set and the awesome cupid's arrow can be found in the Countless Sayings 2 photopolymer stamp set. 

The finishing touches were just ONE rhinestone and a rounded corner, both in the direction of the arrow, which help to empasize the movement!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Special Edition - Love Ya!

Do you like my new look? I don't usually post on Sundays but I couldn't wait to implement the changes that I have making to my blog. I made the new header myself in MDS and I just loovvvvee it! I think the cute envelope is a nice tie in to my blog name, after all what good is a card without an envelope? lol

And daisies are my favorite flower, so perky and cheerful, and purple is my favorite color so I managed to incorporate them both! The design is very clean and simple, which is very much my style.

Enough on that, you came to see a card, right?! Here it is!


I used a simple heart from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set to stamp a background in various shades of pink. I added a strip of designer series paper on the left to ground the hearts and then added a sentiment.


The sentiment is from the Just Sayin' stamp set and was die cut using the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. I love that you can bundle both products together and save! I used the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies to create a matching envelope liner and I'm done!

So fun and easy!

Please let me know what you think of my new look!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wedding Wishes

My niece called me up recently, quite unexpectedly, to ask if she could purchase some cards from say I was surprised is an understatement! I am thrilled to pieces that she would think of my cards and of course am sending her a care package as we speak!

Her request inspired me to create a few pieces, one of which is featured today. I went searching for inspiration on Pinterest and found this card by Nadine Weiner that I just had to case (copy and share everything)!

Can you see the lovely shimmer? This is the first opportunity I have had to use the Foil Sheets available in the Holiday Catalog and I have a new love! Such a beautiful subtle finish for a wedding card, don't you think? And I haven't pulled out the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching dies in quite a while...they look superb here stamped in Metallic Silver. And this pattern from the Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper sets everything off wonderfully!

And of course, what would a wedding be without a few pearls? I'm adding a few other cards to my niece's care package and will share some of them with you over the next few weeks. I'm hoping she enjoys using them!
