Do you just know that feeling when you just “love someone to pieces?” They’re so adorable, so sweet, so kind, fun to be around always, thoughtful, giving, loving, I could go on and on about this meaning, I think…so when I saw this sentiment in the Sweet Stack stamp set in the Annual Catalog p.66, it was going to find a home on my stamp shelf. 🙂 It is the stamp set that has the swirly gigs from an earlier card I did a few months ago. I love quite a few people “to pieces!” Too many to name and I know you care, but you want to see more about my card, right? Okay!
Going to hop to the deets!
If you look real, real, real close you will see that I embossed the Blackberry Bliss top layer with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder, so classy and elegant. Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink is so lush, warm, and a very elegant color, IMO. What do you think?
Blackberry Bliss was the chosen lucky card base for today. It was screaming “happy!” Then a layer of Very Vanilla about 1/4″ less and then voila, my final and top layer. My FINAL answer. My FINAL layer. I wanted to “accent” that beautiful top layer with the 5/8″ Striped Cotton ribbon, it is so nice on the “canvas” ribbon (but it’s cotton)!
Flowers! Lovely little blackberry flowers! Are you gettin’ hungry now for some blackberries? I thought so, me too! I stamped these beauties using the large Flower from Crazy About You stamp set! Isn’t that ironic, I used the Flower from this set from a wonderful stamp set that’s called Crazy About YOU which also coincides with my sentiment!! I didn’t even think about that, but sometimes you just get “smart” when you don’t even KNOW you are. Crazy.
I punched the trio out using my Flower Medallion PUNCH! It just punches perfectly. Love that flower punch. You can use the punch without using the stamp set. Did you realize that?? You’re very welcome, my friend.
I used the Tags and Labels framelits! The small one in one of the trios in this array of awesomeness! Those tags and labels works with a gazillion sentiments and images!! Check them out and snatch them up. You will find you use them way more than you might think. Think Holiday tags for gift giving. See??????!!!!
Topped off the center of my flowers with the perfect “bling.” Lovely, sparkly rhinestones!
I betcha you can think of a cutie pie in your life that you just love to pieces. There is NO age limit to who you can “love to pieces!” That’s right. No age limit. You could stamp this sentiment and crop out and tuck in your sweet child’s lunch box or just leave one by their cereal bowl in the morning. Or just make a sweet gift tag and leave by grandma’s reading glasses on the table, or make all your Valentine’s day cards to send to your friends that love you to pieces, too! Wink. Wink!!! You get the picture! 🙂
And don’t forget to add that “special” YOU touch to all your cards with the amazing envelope liners. It’s just kinda “snazzes” up that beautiful, thoughtful card you just CREATED! YAY!
