Love Ya!

I dug through my box of new-and-not-yet-used items the other day and found one of my new dies from Simon Says Stamp. I decided it had to be used, so I made this:

The die has two parts - a flower strip with the four hearts and a separate die with just four hearts. This makes it easy to cut out extra hearts for layering without dealing with the stem part. Nice.

I cut the stem out of SU Garden Green, then cut the four hearts twice (that's eight total for you math-a-phobes) out of a scrap of SU Poppy Parade DSP from The Heaplet.  I glued the first set to the green hearts to cover them up, then I folded the remaining hearts in half and glued down only the centers so the ends would stick up a little.

The sentiment is from the SSS Talk Bubbles set, and I colored it with a Poppy Parade marker.

I thought it needed something else, so I poked holes on either side of the stem and tied a piece of yellow twine. I don't know about you, but when I tie my bows they come out upside down. Instead of retraining myself to tie them differently, I just turn the card upside down and tie the bow normally. It works every time. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: SU DSP, SU Garden Green card stock, Whisper Graphics Divine Twine in yellow & white, and the following:


  1. Yesssss! My bows come out upside as well on paper. But when I turn the card upside they come out sideways. This is why I usually tie them by themselves and then stick them on. Very odd. I still love this die and mine shipped today... soon, it shall be mine! bawhahahah (that's evil laughter)

  2. This is a lovely card and I love that die. I saw it on someone else's blog the other day so it will probably end up on my wish list. I like the patterned paper for the heart, so much better than plain paper.

  3. Super cute card, love how you did the hearts on a stem. Love the CAS look.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
