Holding you close in my Heart

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a fabulous week! I’m up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog today with a beautiful uplifting card created with stamps from the gorgeous Brighter Days Ahead stamp set. I did quite a bit of paper piecing with colored cardstock on this CAS-ish card and I wish you could run your fingers over it and feel all the texture! I love how it turned out!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock 110# Basis Natural cardstock. I stamped the focal image on the card base in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then six more times – once on CutCardStock Basis Gold, Basis Light Brown, Sandcastle, Ginger Snap, Pop Tone Jellybean Green and Pop Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock. Then the fun began fussy cutting each element or section and adhering them to the card base. I stamped the sentiment and added several Eyelet Outlet tiny heart sequins which completed the card.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
