SOS #137: Love Me Tender

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is Love Me Tender, and we'd like you to make a card or project with the theme of love or Valentine's Day.

I'm kinda proud that my card was created almost completely from the scraps on my desk. Here it is, then I'll explain:

I'd been working with these pretty papers from the Elle's Studio "Love You More" collection, and had some still out on my desk. I hadn't yet used the stripey piece (the flip side of one I did use), and I was hoping I could get it to work with the strip of hearts. I think the dark gray paper creates enough of a definition that it does actually work. :)

The Paper Smooches Love Word was die-cut three times from a scrap of SU Poppy Parade, also on my desk (but not any more!), and I glued them together for some heft. I stuck it all to a Pool note card.

I think you should play along with our challenge. 'Tis the season! :D

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: Elle's Studio "Love You More" collection, SU Poppy Parade and Basic Gray card stock, misc mounting tape, and the following:


  1. The dark gray goes so perfect with those bright colors! Fabulous card!

  2. Yep, it'a all hearts and flowers this month. Your card is so pretty, those papers are lovely together.

  3. So pretty! Love all the papers and I agree with Chris, the grey looks fab against the bright colours!

  4. So pretty and I like that you have a whole host of colors on your card!

  5. I LOVE this bright & cheery card!! I so need that die. And I want those papers. ACK I never realized by suggesting a purchase to you that I was doomed to be enabled whenever I come by....shoot.

  6. This is awesome! I love the patterned papers and the layers really elevate the design. Very dramatic! Nicely done!

  7. *LOVE* is definitely the right word for this gorgeous card! holy wow, those papers are FAB!!! <3 <3 <3

  8. What a cool match of dsp!! I love the diagonals and hearts - great combination of visual interest!!

  9. Fantastic card! I really love the patterned paper. Very pretty!

  10. This is fabulous! I love the movement you created with the hearts on top of the stripes! Super fun card!

  11. I "love' the "love" die cut…I never actually add those amazing things to my stash. I should do that. This is a great card! I love the stripes.


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