RemArkables Lovey Dovey Blog Tour

As our crafty times of all things Christmas and winter holidays wains, a crafty crafter may wonder, "What should I make now?"  Well, the RemArkables Pin Worthy Blog Tour is here to help!!  And we're thinking that you should be making Valentines! Or anniversary cards, or wedding cards, but definitely something lovey dovey.  So here is my contribution, I hope it inspires you.

Let's begin with the Stampin' Up! Love you more set.  It's available just for a short while, so I advise ordering it asap.  This card features lots of paper layers, which I just adore.  A little I am me DSP, some so saffron card stock, some this and that washi tape and the sentiment/image stamped in real red and voila a nice card to give to your honey OR your Grandma!

This card puts a few new things together. The cute you & me sentiment is from the Occasions catalog, the Perfect Pennants set and I used the Banners Framelits (available in a bundle at a 15% discount). To continue the banner idea, I used 2 items from the sale-a-bration brochure (a free item with every $50 purchase). Stamp the banners and punch them out, easy-peasy!  I then sewed down the front of the card (sew cute!) and topped it off with some shiny black ribbon.  My favorite part of this card is here:

Look close, the tiny banner that says "love".  In the stamp set, it's a banner that hangs the vertical way, but I wanted it horizontal.  So I used my marker to ink up just the word and stamped and punched it the other way!! Pretty awesome!

So carry on January crafter and see what the other RemArkable Stampers have for you.
