And here’s my card today with a romantic theme:
We have an out of town basketball game tonight so I was pressed for time today. And when I’m rushed, I always grab my Journal Notes by Crafty Secrets. This beautiful floral was from the Summertime pad. I added a sentiment and bow and called it done!!! Stamped Simply, for sure!
My sentiment is from Loving Thoughts (see graphic and description below). Cut with Petite Circle Nesties, pierced for a lacey look, and adorned with Kaiser Rhinestones for some sparkle. I used VersaFine Vintage Sepia Ink. Simple layers, quickly done!
My bow was so pretty, just wanted to show you. This is a double bow of 100% Mauve 1.25″ Silk Ribbon by May Arts, made on the Bow Easy, adhered to the card with Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue that I get from Wal-Mart. Just takes a minute to do this bow!
Here’s a graphic of the set I used — Loving Thoughts Centers by JustRite Stampers — for the 1 5/8″ Stampers. This is one of the new releases that just shipped this week. I have a good supply on hand. They sell for $14.95. Just email me if you’d like a set — firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signing off quickly — must get to that game on time. I’ll be back later tonight to provide all links — the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries most items to make this card — the Journal Notes, Silk Ribbon, JustRite Stamps, Kaiser Pearls, Spellbinders Petite Circle Nestabilities, Bow Easy.
I’ll be back later to clean up this post — thanks for stopping in!!!!
