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!

A Banner Blast Valentine


Good Morning and Happy Friday to you! I finally made it into my stamp room last night and created this fun Valentine! I used the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape to ground these cute little images from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Banner Blast. I stamped the images in Versamark Ink, then heat embossed the using Gold Embossing Powder and punched them out using the Banner Punch - another Sale-A-Bration product!

I found the sentiment in the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and loved it! Simple and sweet and not too mushy! I also heat embossed the sentiment and then wrapped everything up with some Gold Baker's Twine. I used the Gold Foil Sheets to frame my top layer and finished it off with some gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim. Love it!

I made another version, this one layered on an additional layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and then popped up off the card base with Stampin' Dimentionals. I can't decide which I prefer...which one do you like better?

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!

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!
