Love You Forever


I'm still being good about trying to use up those 6 X 6 designer paper packs!  From one sheet I am making two cards.  On the first card I try to cover the entire card front with patterned paper, and on my second card I use the left over strip down the side or bottom of the card.  (I'll show you the 2nd card tomorrow.)

There is a new challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp and it's "Anything Goes", so I will add this card there.

Paper: Basic Grey (Sweet Threads); Neenah
Ink: CTMH
Stamps: PTI
Other: Corner Chomper

Look at that gorgeous patterned paper, isn't it beautiful!  This card looks like it could be a notebook cover to me.  And I am really loving the stamps ,and especially the sentiments, in the new PTI Anniversary stamp set.  As you can see I did not do much work here, the flower and leaves are popped up and the card corners are rounded.

It is so warm out today.  It's actually going to get into the 80's this week!  Wow, already!

Wishing you a spectacular day and thank you so much for taking the time to visit me!

AH, Brenda - this is incredibly dear! The paper reminds me of a country cotton dress and I so love that sentiment. You are doing such a good job of meeting your objectives of using the paper pads! Such a delight.

Hi, Brenda!

WOW! You've used this pretty pp and the lovely PTI anniversary set so beautifully! Fabulous card!

I'm so guilty of having lots of patterned paper...AND...stamps. I'm also trying to use up more of my paper. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

Hugs!

You are making such good use with your patterned papers!! We are such hoarders, aren't we? ;) I need to use all mine up too before I buy anymore! Love the oval shape with the sentiment inside!

This is so pretty! Although you used the same pp as the other card (I visited the card earlier) it gives such a different look on the card!
