One Last You Plus Me before V-Day

I absolutely love the You Plus Me stamp set, just in case you hadn't noticed yet :) So I had to sneak in one more card before the big day of Love!

I came up with the idea for this card right before my class last week. I was playing around with the supplies while I waited for people and I made an whoopsie... my stamp bounced on the paper and made a disgusting smudge :( But, as my mom always says, mistakes are just a Creative Opportunity, so I decided to take it!

I stamped the ampersand on a scratch piece of paper and cut it out, and then used that to cover up the whoops. I moved over my washi tape and added a bit of sponging to the heart background (I just love how it brings out the hearts).

I also decided to join the stringy trend. I colored some bakers twine by running it over my real read ink pad. Word of warning- if you do this your fingers will NOT stay clean. But that's half the fun of crafting right :) I attached the string to the back of the ampersand in loops, added the You and Me blocks (cut from the circle sentiment) and it was finished. What do you think?

Flutterby again soon!

Pin It!
