Always in my Heart

Welcome to my blog today!  I just am jumping up and down (I really AM!) that I get to share you with y’all today!

Today’s card features beautiful products from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set that is ONLY available until the end of August. It is an All Exclusive stamp set only for a limited time! August 31st it goes away, so don’t miss out on this beautiful, very versatile set.  Let me tell you it is full of many options to use for various reasons in your life. The sentiments are perfect and the die cuts are gorgeous. I think you will really enjoy the die cut framelits and the BUNDLE is a cost savings PLUS!  We all just adore savings, don’t we??

I used the sentiment Always in my heart, it actually says “and”  Always in my heart to be used on the inside of the card, or attached on the front of a card with another sentiment above it.  However, I just love what it means. I’m sure, if you’re like me, you have many people that stay close to your heart on a daily basis and will for all eternity. So, I decided I would use the Owl Punch (that stinkin’adorable heart) to “cover” OVER the “and” and put this sentiment on the front of the card to go to someone quite special to me.

I think it works, shhhhh…don’t tell anyone because the purpose is for it to look like that’s the sentiment as a stand alone!   So…don’t tell anyone this important “secret.”    Not a soul. You can do it, too, when you get your set.  Yippee!  Sometimes you just gotta get extremely “creative” to make it work.

This beautiful stamp set comes in a BUNDLE for a 10% savings and the BUNDLE is really worth it as the frame lits  are so very intricate (but not too delicate), the impressions after cutting out are stunning.  I used Always Artichoke for the base, Early Expresso for the top layer and embossed it with the Woodgrain folder to “match” the tree trunk, stamped my sentiment and punched my hearts and put a pretty little linen bow and wrapped some linen around to give a bit of texture and voila! DONE!

I thought since I was putting this card in the vertical position, an OVAL frame lit would suit the bill.  I layered the tree branches a little “off” the oval to give some interest.  I know you must have someone that always lives in your heart that would be touched to receive a card in their MAILBOX.  You may also have someone that is not physically any longer with you, and while that is sad in many ways, you could make this sweet card and think of them. It could bring smiles for your memories.    But, pass it along to someone dear to you that you share your life with now, it will bring you joy to make it, send it, and bring smiles to the recipient.  I think you need this set.  I do. Think of a few peeps in your life that you appreciate.  I bet you can come up with at least a few.  Don’t you think the sentiment above in this stamp set that says I HOPE YOU FEEL APPRECIATED.  Every now and then it’s nice to know you are appreciated. I love this whole stamp set, now go back and up and check it out!  Yes, you need it in your stash.
