Here we go!

I love this stamp set. It is so versatile! The sentiments can be used on a scrapbook layout or a card.
I am in the process of using this stamp set on one of my granddaughter;s layouts but haven't finished it quite yet however I wanted to show folks how this stamp set could be used on cards.
I made 4 different cards. So here they are;

On this card I used a number of expressions stamped in Champagne for a tone on tone look and the 'You and Me' was stamped with Close to My Heart black archival ink. I love the look and it's such a simple card. I cut the card using Art Philosophy.


On the next card I used the square stamp with the mini chevrons to create my own background. I sued  Close To My Heart :Champagne ,saddle and honey ink. The metal Artisan studs(Z1816) are also from Close to My Heart. I thought this card could be a male themed card.

On the third card I used one of the mini circle lined stamps and did random stamping on the card front using Close to My Heart Pear,Honey and smoothie for the back ground. I used the Close to My Heart scallop punch for the middle border and edged it with  Close to my Heart -green glitter paper. I used the happy Birthday sentiment from another of our Stamp sets called ,Your own kind of wonderful D1627. Again I stamped the Date in  Close to My Heart black Archival ink to make it stand out.

Foe the last card I used the Mini Flag to create a small banner across the top,  Close to My Heart Glacier extra thick twine Z3039,Coral Reef sequins(love these!)Z3042, Shimmer Trim- Teal( CTMH),Pear cardstock. Yes stamped the You and Me in Black Archival ink.

                                        Here is more artwork done by the folks at Close to My Heart.
