Have you seen the new stamp sets recently released by Sparkle N Sprinkle?  The two newest “Stampette Sets” coordinate with each other and are perfect for making a card to let someone know you love them. 

Here are two cards I just made using these sets.

This first card is probably the simplest card you will ever see me make.  You have no idea how hard it is for me to leave it alone.  It uses an image from the Love Fairy set and the one word sentiment from the Amore set.  Running it through a Darice embossing folder and adding a little glitter made me feel better and it is still simple and sweet.

On this second card the beautiful Amore Fairy image is centered on layers of red mirror cardstock and Nesting Doily Square die cuts.  I used the floral wreath to add a sentiment and added glitter to all of the stamped flowers, using a glue pen.  The white bow, pink satin flowers, and a pearl button on a hat pin add a touch a elegance.

Find more detail on both of these stamp sets and cards on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  Don’t forget to come back on Thursday, January 17 for the start of the Sparkle N Sprinkle Fancy Folds Blog Hop. 

Enjoy your week!!

I really like your simple card. And I know just how you feel. It takes a lot of restraint sometimes!

Gorgeous CAS card - I love that you left it alone - I'm a big fan of lots and lots of glorious white space and you nailed it here! Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week, Marie!

Both are so very pretty. Really like the embossing on the first one and the simplicity of it really gets the message across.

Donna Ellis said...

Marie, your CAS card is gorgeous - so elegant with that spark of brilliant color for which you are so famous. Your Valentine card is soooo sweet! Love the glitters, mirror CS and pearly elements - and of course, the darling image.
