Hello!  I have had the greatest time stamping again since I've redone my space!  This weekend I made cards just for the fun of it, not because I had an assignment due or a card to make for someone. It was so freeing and I was actually inspired...YEA!! I have needed that for a long time!  Such a great feeling!

I had a hard time deciding which card to share today but finally decided a card about hugs would be the way to go since I feel rather chipper today! :)

Hugs on My Mind

I had some Christmas money to spend and placed a small order from Simon Says Stamp for that adorable "Hugs" die!  I cut it twice, once out of silver glitter paper and once from Pure Poppy Striped paper from PTI to make a shadow for the word.  I adhered the "hugs" with pop dots to the patterned paper (also new called Love Notes by Crate Paper) and then adhered my enamel dots.

The tilted panel was die cute with Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Rectangles and then trimmed to fit the card front.  I stamped the sentiment underneath from a set that I haven't pulled out lately (but used it for TWO cards this weekend!!) called "Big & Bold Wishes".  I really like all of the sentiment options that this set offers!  To finish the card off, I tied a little strand of Rustic Cream Button Twine around the Berry Sorbet card base.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful & blessed day today!


  1. Jen this is so pretty! Love the layered & shadowed sentiment.

  2. Love the stitched mat on an angle, I think I need to try that. The hugs die might have to go on a shopping list!

  3. Hugs to you!!! And you've certainly been on my my your card will be on my mind as I make my SSS list!!!
