Hand Crafted with Love

PS I Love You

 Plain to Spectacular with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool - The card base is a standard 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" Very Vanilla Base, but there is nothing standard about this masterpiece after my stylus has his way.  For a video tutorial about the Simply Scored Scoring tool Click Here

It's true the PS I love you stamp set is a perfect choice for Valentines day, but it is not limited to just one occasion.  Try the PS I Love You stamp set for Wedding, anniversary, Sweetest Day, and Love You cards.

PS I Love You Matchbox

The matchbox die is large enough to Nest 4 Hershey's Nuggets.  The base is Blushing Bride card stock and the cover is Twitterpated designer paper.


Robin's Craft Tips
Scrunch Victoria Lace on a strip of Sticky Strip 

Add a couple Twitterpated Designer Buttons with mini glue dots

Stamp your frame and message using the PS I Love You Stamp Set and punch with the Word Window Punch.

The stitches in the pleated ribbon and the stamped stitches of the PS I Love you stamp set compliment each other.

PS I Love Card

The Fashionable Hearts embosslit die embosses 5 unique patterns. Better yet, they simultaneously cut and emboss these fun hearts.  Pool Party Baker's Twine rounds out our card with a complimentary bow.

Congratulations, Sue!

"The plastic brad boxes can be used for many things, but my favorite is a travel sewing box. You can pad and cover the lid for a pin cushion. I have used them for a water color brush cleaner also. Enjoy"

Thanks to all who participated.

Happy Crafting

Coordinated Card Making Supplies

Bordering Romance

Making Cards with a coordinating stamp set, embossing folder and edgelit die makes a real statement.  Today's Thank You Card oozes elegance.

The Thanks was stamped with the Outlined Occasions stamp set which I earned for free as a Sale-a-Bration Reward stamp set.  The stitched lines are a terrific match for the stitched line of the Bordering Romance Stamp Set.

The embossed hearts peeking just below the card front  were embossing with the Adorning Accents embossing folder.  Don't forget to emboss you envelope flap too.  The band of raised hearts dance across you envelope saying it all.

Robin's Card Tips

  • For perfect placement try embossing just above where you intend to cut your edge.
  • Then line-up your Adorning Accent Edgelit just below your embossed image and cut.
  • Emboss once again with you Adorning Accent embossing folder just below your cut edge.
  • Line up your Bordering Romance Stamp and stamp using Poppy Parade Ink.  How Pretty is that?
