P.S. I Love You

Oh…I think I'm going to LOVE Stampin' Up!'s PS I Love You set in the Occasions Mini!  I've been playing around with it for a couple Create with Connie and Mary Occasions projects and now did up this card real quick!  Love that it has greetings in it, too!  I followed the color scheme on Colour Q challenge #117 with Black, White and any other color!  Obviously I chose Real Red!

 

 

And here is my card:

 

 

I decided to use the Real Red Patterns Designer Paper because Stampin' Up! currently has a special package called Love Patterns of 12 sheets of Real Red and Pretty in Pink Patterns for Valentine's on the CLEARANCE RACK for $1.99 (regularly $9.95)!  What a BARGAIN!  Head over to my ONLINE store to check out what else they just added, too!

 

The base of the card is Whisper White and I added a layer of Basic Black.  I used another piece of Whisper White and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Impressions Folder.  I cut four Scallop Heart Embosslits from Basic Black.  Then I punched two of the Real Red Patterns with the Full Heart Punch.  I stamped the hearts image from Stampin' Up!'s PS I Love You stamp set with Real Red and punched it with the Full Heart Punch.  Next I punched a Real Red cardstock Full Heart and stamped Love You from the same stamp set inside with Basic Black.  I added a flower White button from the Neutrals Button pack with White Bakers Twine tied inside.  Oh, the Love You heart is popped up with Dimensionals.  I really like how it turned out!

 

 

Did you see?  Create with Connie and Mary has opened up their EARLY BIRD PRICING of $29.95 for the next Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition 2012!!!  Check out our new look and details HERE!  Then…go ahead and sign up!  You don't want to miss out on the savings!

Love this card!  But am totally bummed I missed that dsp for 1.99 when I did my clearance rack order.  Oh well.  I really like the houndstooth folder in white for the BG.
