Some Fun News!!
I have some fun news to share with everyone! I have been asked to be one of the July Guest Design Divas over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog!! This is my first exposure to digi stamps and I must say I love how you can easily adjust their size and rotate them to fit your stamping needs.
I fell in love (no pun intended LOL!) with their Love Sentiments 1 set and wanted to use it on my first card. It has many amazing sentiments in fabulous fonts that you can use for Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries and even encouragement. Plus, with having gone to a wedding last weekend and having celebrated our anniversary on July 1st, love was still in the air :)
Last week's Stamping 411 sketch was a perfect fit for this set! I loved the heart in the square panel, and though I did end up modifying it a bit, the fundamentals of the sketch are still there. I paired it with this week's Play Date Cafe's Colour Challenge because the colours were a perfect match! I ran the heart embossing folder though my Cuttlebug twice as I used it horizontally, used my heart Nesties and a Marvy flower punch, and finished the card off with a touch of ribbon, half pearls, and a button.
Thanks for popping in. Back tomorrow with my sample of this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge.
