Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Love Theme



Hello once again everyone...Hope 2018 is treating you well.
So happy to be back with this lovely group of talented artists featuring in this

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Love Theme
It can cover any of the following
Valentines, Wedding, Anniversary etc
 
You might be starting the Hop with me or
you could have joined me from
USA's talented  Jenny Hall's
blog


When you need a card quickly you can use the very versatile
Memories and More Card Pack (pg 24) of the Occasions catalogue.
I decided to make an easy card using both the front and back of
one of the double sided cards from this pack of 52.



I cut the 'always on my mind' out of the centre of the card,
then flipped it over and used the floral as the card front of my card.
I stuck the 'always on my mind' onto a piece of black cardstock.

Next I decided it needed some texture, this suite comes
with matching Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders


I used the floral one which I run through the Big Shot on Powder Pink cardstock
to use behind my words, it just give a subtle amount of texture.

Now back to the Memories and More Petal Passion Card Pack
there was one with the two birds together so I cut them out
to add to my card. I used 3 differing sized hearts as embellishments



As well as the cards in this pack there are several
accent sheets, sticker sheets and acetate card overlays. 



So you can easily whip up several cards needing only the very basics
Cardstock, ink and glue.
See Pg 22 of the Occasions catalogue for these wonderful samples


This card, I felt was a bit lack lustre so I used the
Petals & More Thinlits Dies to add some bling to it.
Using the long die at the top, I cut it out of Silver Glimmer Paper using the Big Shot.
It is a lil bit tricky, you may need to add an extra layer of scrap paper to make sure it cuts through all the holes in the die.

Once I had added this to under the birds I felt like it was almost finished,
BUT of course I just had to add one more thing.
A bow tied from the Whisper White 1.4" Organza Ribbon.
