Framed Smooch

Good morning, Friends! Boy am I tired!! I slept well but last weekend is starting to catch up to me. Ugh! Two more days until another crazy weekend - lol! I hope that we won't get home as late as last weekend. It looks like the weather will be a lot warmer and much nicer! I didn't have my act together either and didn't have anything ready to post. So yesterday I sat down and started creating! It took me a while to get my mojo going but I did come up with some cards! I played a lot with my new Summer Smooches line. These products are available till the end of this month! And don't forget to look at the retired list! It is out as well. I am only losing 41 sets this year. I didn't think that was too bad!

Today's card was inspired by one I saw in the recent PaperCrafts Magazine. This is a super simple card and has no layers! However, it did take quite a few tries to get the vase of flowers centered and straight - lol! I did have to resort to a Stamp-a-ma-jig for help. I colored the image from Bright Blossoms with Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight and stamped it onto my card base of Whisper White. Below the image I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in black StazOn. Then I used a ruler to draw a frame around it with my Basic Black marker. I added a Rich Razzleberry button and put a rhinestone in the middle. And that's it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Bright Blossoms, Friendly Phrases; Paper- Whisper White; Ink- black StazOn, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight; Accessories- Brights buttons, rhinestone


  1. I love your card! That is exactly why I resort to cutting out sometimes. I just have to give up on stamping that image where I want it since I will sacrifice only so much cardstock. I love your blog!!

  2. I love your smooches ~ very cute!!
