Friday at last! Sheesh – these “long” weeks are a booger, aren’t they?? 😉
I’ve got a quick and easy card for you today – just in time for Valentine’s Day or…a friend’s anniversary! I made it with the Heart Happiness and Petal Palette stamp sets, a little Petal Passion DSP and the Labeler Alphabet stamp set from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:
I need this card in a couple of weeks, but the challenge from The Paper Players this week spurred me to make it now!
I had so much fun yesterday with the Black and White and ? color theme, that I decided to indulge myself and do it again – but this time I used Melon Mambo as the ? color!
I began with a piece of striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP that I Fast Fuse’d onto a Melon Mambo mat. Then I used some leftover ribbon from the January Paper Pumpkin kit. I made three little loop-d-loops with some Glue Dots on the card front.
Since that ribbon is edged with Copper, I used my Copper Metallic Thread and more Glue Dots to wind several loops around – over the ribbon.
I stamped two striped hearts from the Heart Happiness stamp set in Melon Mambo on some Glossy White Paper and cut them out with the matching heart die in the Lots to Love Box Framelits. I used a few more Glue Dots to adhere the bottom heart and then popped the second heart on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I built my punny sentiment – thank you Brian King for the idea! – using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. I stamped all the words in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White, then fussy cut them all individually. I used Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the words over the hearts and then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp a sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel. Over that, I added some Heart Happiness stamp set hearts in Melon Mambo.
I stuck on another little Rhinestone, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Basic Black card base. I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! 🙂
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Melon Mambo Heart Happiness hearts across the front…
…and some more Petal Passion DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I am really loving the Heart Happiness stamp set – it’s got such wonderful images in it! And it’s always fun – well, I think it is!! – to make fun sentiments with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. I think my friends will like it – in a couple of weeks! – and I hope you like, too!

Wayne has a tumor.
It’s a little furry.
Sort of cute – as tumors go….
Can’t show the “actual” tumor, cuz…it’s in a sort of private place and this is a G-rated blog.
But…I can show part of it – it’s pretty big…
It’s kind of an odd tumor – it comes and goes. Mostly coincides with lunch….
