Filled with Love card for you

I recently found a blog where the author (Robin Messenheimer)  includes a card sketch with every card she posts and over 95% of the sketches are accurate. Since it seems that more and more lately I don’t have the time to craft and when I do I spent 2/3 of my time in the planning phase, I decided to challenge myself to create a card from every sketch she posts in 2011. So here is card number one. this one I actually cased her sample- well mostly.


I didn’t have the same DSP or ribbon she used so I switched the colors. The stamp set that I used was only available from Dec17th thru Jan 24th but Stampin’ Up released it on Dec 28th as a digital stamp set. You can use it in My Digital Studio or in any other software to create the stamped panel shown above. (Print on whisper white and you are ready to cut and assemble)

I cut the following:

     Dark DSP – 4” wide by 5¼” high
     Light DSP – 3½” wide by 4¾” high 
     Poppy Parade CS– 4” wide by 1” high 
     Blushing Bride CS– 8½” wide by 5½” high 
     Whisper White CS– 3½” wide by 2” high 

Then stamped the Love and flower stamps on the Whisper White. Next I punched out the edge of the Poppy Parade CS and started layering dark dsp, light dsp, whisper white cs, poppy parade strip and wrapped the ribbon around the back tying to the side. I punched out a small heart from the other side of the dark dsp and used a glue dot to adhere over the heart at the top of the flower. Then I used my marker to dye my linen thread old olive and tied it thru the holes of a bitty button which was then glued in place with a mini glue dot.

Then I finished the inside with a verse and 3 hearts from the same stamp set.
