I Love You
You all know how much I love Damask Designs and Heart Prints and they are perfect together, too. I love how versatile Damask Designs is that it can be used for classy or for casual depending upon the color scheme. I went with classy on my card using black and white with a touch of pure poppy thrown in.
I stamped the damask pattern on my white cardstock and added some black stitching. I wrapped my true black and pure poppy satin ribbons around my cardstock before adding it to my true black card base. I cut out a white rectangle using a long rectangle nestability die. I added some black stitching and wrapped the corners with some ribbon. I stamped my sentiment and hearts and then added it to my card using foam adhesive. I stamped one of the hearts from Heart Prints on white cardstock, punched it out, and used foam adhesive to add it to my card. I finished off my card by stamping the damask pattern across the bottom of a piece of white cardstock and adding some stitching before I put it on the inside of card.
This weekend was spent purging, organizing, and cleaning. I am a messy paper crafter and my space was definitely in need of a good cleaning. Every few months, I also go through my paper and purge. It feels good to get rid of the stuff that has been in my stash forever that I have never used. Doing this has really helped me to get over hoarding my pretty papers, too. I find as my style changes and evolves that I am drawn to different things and if I don't use it, I might not like it near as much next time I purge. My kids love using the purged stuff for paper crafting and my son loves to draw, too. I also donate to my son's preschool and the local library for craft time so at least someone is getting some use out of it.
Well, have a great week and thanks for visiting!!
