More Amore & Hearts A Flutter Love Card

Hey Stampers,

How is everyone today ?? Last night I decided to try and get a head start on my projects for January Stamp Club ! I always think I am getting a head start, but by the time club comes around I will still be rushing something I am sure. LOL I knew I wanted to use the beautiful products from the More Amore Suite in the new Spring Catalogue for one of my projects. I decided (after much indecision LOL) to go with the More Amore Specialty DSP and the Heart A Flutter Stamps and Framelits Bundle. Love using those bundles, you save 15% off the regular price !! Can't beat that, right ?? Thats the problem when everything is so beautiful !! Decisions, decisions. LOL I knew I wanted to use the stunning laser cut heart doilies for sure, so I decided to build my card around that idea !! take a look at what I created !! 


Do you like it !?! I really love how it turned out. This would be a great valentine of course, but also a sweet anniversary card or birthday card ! Just change up the little sentiment !! My "love" sentiment is from the cute Ciao, Baby! stamp set which matches the new 7/8" Scalloped Circle punch and the yummy Petite Curly Label Punch (that I used here) that you can get for FREE during Salebration !! I love free stuff, don't you ?? So first I did all my stamping. The love sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then punched with the Petite Curly Label. I used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set for my pink heart (solid image stamped in Pink Pirouette and outline in Real Red ink), striped banner and the scalloped heart (both stamped with Pool Party ink) and then I die cut them out with the matching Framelits. Love those framelits !! So easy for a perfect image.

Next was all my papers. The More Amore DSP layer was cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and layered onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Primrose Petals. A 1-3/4" x 5" strip of hearts patterned DSP was layered onto a 2" x 5" piece of Real Red cardstock and adhered to the layer. I stapled on my Pool Party banner before adhering the layer to my Pool Party card base. A couple steps, but love the effect ! Then it was time to add all my fun embellishments !! I piece of 1/4" Pool Party Sycamore Street ribbon was added to the back of my Pink Pirouette heart with some tape, and it was added with dimensionals to the Real Red die cut heart. I also added the love sentiment (blinged up by sticking on a Basic Rhinestone) with a dimensional. A Pool Party button (also from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack - free during Salebration !!) tied with a bow of White Bakers Twine finishes off this fun card ! 

I think this card is so sweet. I hope my club ladies like it as well !! I have a few new ladies starting this year, so I hope this is a great welcome for them into the club !! Wouldn't you like to make one of these with us too !?!? Thanks for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
