Wow, for the first time in my short blogging life Blogger was down this morning for a while. At least it was for me. The error message just kept saying that Blogger was not available. Ah, but then ... it's manic Monday! I didn't get back to blogging until this afternoon and it feels weird to do this so late in the day.
Manic Monday means it's time for a CAS card! And it couldn't get much simpler than this.
I took this to a demo swap in January for Valentine's Day and everyone loved it. It's soooo simple! The colors are Real Red and Old Olive (here they look almost rosy but that could be my photography!
Take a piece of Whisper White card stock, score it (I used a Scor Pal but you can use your SU cutter and a bone folder too! I stamped the vine from Vintage Vogue (#117690-wood mount, #118598-clear mount) in Olive. The stamp set was in the Occasions Mini and will be in the new 2010-20111 Idea Book and Catalog coming out July 1.
The hearts are stamped with the set I Heart Hearts (#117010-wood mount; #118571-clear mount) from the same mini catalog and are available in the new catalog as well. I stamped them in Real Red and used the Heart to Heart punch (#113694 - whale tale version) to punch them out. Keep in mind that as of July 1 the Heart to Heart punch will be retooled with the sleeker new punch design. If you have a preference for the whale tale current design for punches you'll want to fill in your collection before the end of the month.
I also used the Heart to Heart punch for the swirly heart and cut it smaller than the stamped image. Then I popped the larger images up with Stampin' Dimensionals, tied a Real Red Satin ribbon around the card and it was FINITO!
Manic Monday doesn't have to be bad if you've got an easy card to CASE! Go for it! Use butterflies or flowers instead of hearts, have fun with it. Don't forget to stamp a little greeting in the corner of your card.
Thanks for stopping by my cyber stamp room! See you tomorrow!
God bless you and yours this week in a HUGE way,
Much love and joy,
