This card was inspired by my scrap pile and my friend
Marg's blog hop post.
Marg made a cute embellishment by layering the xoxo several times.
Well, I wanted a quick card so I popped up the xoxo with Thin Foam tape.
The rainbow hearts were laying on my scrap pile from months ago, lol.
I used the Chevron Border Punch (now retired) along the bottom.
I really like this XOXO Thin Cut and have used it several times on layouts, 
as well as cards.
It is only $8.21 this week.
Hope your week is as bright and happy as this card!

Hello Thin Cuts

I thought I would share some Thin Cut projects since this is the last week to get your
Thin Cuts for 25% off.
For these cards I used the "hello" cut and the Thin Hearts.

I started with a 4 x 5 1/4 inch panel of White Daisy Cardstock
and White Glitter Cardstock.
I covered the white panel with strips of paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals pack.
I ran the Thin Cut Hearts through the striped piece.
And the Hello through the Glitter Cardstock.

I used the positive space on one card and the negative space on another.
Here's a look at each card.

 I have been having so much fun playing with Thin Cuts this month.
If you want to add to your collection, the link is HERE.
It is Spring break and I am enjoying every minute of it.
Hope you have a great week too.

Scrappy Saturday

Welcome to another Scrappy Saturday.
This layout was inspired by a sketch challenge at
the Paper Issues online crop.
They hosted a fun online crop last weekend.
I used  mix of retired and current Fundamentals.
I also added current and retired Complements.
It was a fun sketch to play with.
Today I am attending the 
Close To My Heart Spring Launch event in Detroit.
DH was sweet enough to drive me and hang out while I am at the training.
I get to help out with some duties and I will get a copy of the new 
Seasonal Expressions.  
Have a great weekend.

Back with another Stamp of the Month
This one is my favorite.
I used the linen look paper from
Hello Lovely.
The hearts are from another stamp set and the spills and splatters too.
The other images are from the  great set
So pretty.

Here For You + Watercolors

As I was playing with the Here For You
stamp set I thought I would have to try a watercolor background.
This one is a little busy but I think I like the result.
I just swished a watercolor background in yellow, orange and dark pink.
I let it dry and stamped over it.
It's fun to layer those flowers.

Some Kinda Wonderful.
Love the Tangerine and Blossom pink combo.

I am happy to have these "words of encouragement" cards on hand.

Happy hump day!

Here For You Variations

Here's a variation of the card I shared yesterday from the
For this card I created a larger sentiment panel and added some
Tangerine Ink in the floral mix.
Isn't it a gorgeous color for Spring and moving into Summer?

And here is a little softer color palette accented with Sapphire leaves.
You know me and my flower stamps, I never tire of creating floral images.
I'll have yet another combo for you tomorrow.
So, ya'll come back now, please!
