Simple Love

Hi friends!  Happy Thursday!  Yesterday we had our first real snow of the year and it's now a wintery wonderland around here.  I spent a little time in the studio enjoying the snowy view, staring out the window and stamping.  This clean & simple little card is what came out of that session.


I used two of the new sets for this card... the hearts & swirls frame from Twitterpated is stamped directly onto the kraft layer in Real Red, then I added the love sentiment from Wings of Love in black below it.  Next I stamped the wavy heart from Wings of Love in Real Red, cut out and matted on a  Wavy Hearts die cut, popping up over the frame with dimensionals.  Then it was just a matter of a few scored lines, a little distressing and a pretty taffeta bow to finish off this 4.25" square card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Stamps: Wings of Love, Twitterpated (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Kraft, Cream, Real Red

  1. This is really nice! I love it on the kraft, it makes it less "girly" to give to your favorite guy! (that would be my husband btw...!) Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  6. Great colour combo and loving the kraft as the focal colour. Darling CAS card. We got some snow too and it is freezing up here - West Coast wooses don't deal with it well LOL! Have a great week :)

  7. This is just fabulous. It seriously speaks to my need to make clean and simple cards right now. I love the little details of this... the distressed edges, the embossed lines, the subtle pop out... all of it is just gorgeous.

  8. This is darling! I'm glad that you enjoyed the snowy view. We have had so much snow for us here that I have been out of work for the whole week (I work for a school district). I hope to get some crafting done today since we are home again! It felt good to ink up my Verve yesterday!

  10. Hi Julee! This is simple and stunning! Love the colors together and that big, bold heart. I agree, could easily be given to the special man in your life. Hmmm, stamping and a snowy view...they just seem to go together like cocoa and marshmallows!
