Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
I'm prepping for my Monthly Card Club this week and since it's using the Meant to Be Stamp Set, I thought I'd go ahead and use that for my blog this week as well. I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day - ok, I probably was when I was a little girl because my dad would bring all 3 of us flowers and a box of chocolates - but as an adult, I guess I became jaded when I saw how expensive flowers and restaurants became . Tell me you love me everyday not just on the most expensive day of the year. And that's I like the Meant to Be Stamp Set. It's versatile enough to be used all year long, not just on Valentine's day.
Today's card is the perfect example of #SimpleStamping with just a few basic layers and a single stamp.
Base: Whisper White, 4 1/4" 11"

We may be singing Deck the Halls, but these Spirited Snowmen are celebrating their love with the new Meant to Be Bundle. No matter what the season, love is what it's all about.
As I was designing my January Card Club last night with the new Meant to Be Bundle, I made an awesome discovery. The new Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, cut out a solid heart as well as the stitched scalloped frame at the same time! And then I wondered...will that snowman couple fit on the heart? And you know what? They do! I just love it when a plan comes together, don't you?

Pink...blue....I couldn't decide so I made them both! Love doesn't need to be expressed in red candy hearts. It can be subtle and modern, like these modern floral silhouettes from the Petal Passion Memories and More pack. It's funny how a simple black and white card can come to life with just a hint of color.
So...happy Valentine's Day. Shower those you love with love, not just today but every day.

On myFacebook Live video last night, I showed you all of the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper patterns. Who says it has to be for Valentine's only? With all the Gold Foil highlights, they are absolutely stunning. I'm even thinking of getting some 12" x 12" frames and simply framing the whole sheets and hanging them in my studio.
While I love the watercolor brushstrokes on some of the paper, this one is one of my favorites. It makes me think of lipstick swatches. The layers are so brilliant, they still look wet!
I CASEd this card from a swap I received in January. This is clearly my style, with it's simple design clearly highlighting the designer series paper, making in the focal point of the card.
