Begin with a Crumb Cake base card and layer  a 5 1/4″ x 4″ Real Red Layer. The next patterned piece from the Stack was a 3 3/4″ by 5″ all over heart design.

I used the  doily to add a little vintage look to the Thank You card. Use the Heart Confetti Punch and the Itty Bitty Punch Pack heart as well as smaller  scraps to punch all sizes of  hearts . Using the Thank You from the bundle, on a one inch circle adds the sentiment.  Add some Basic Rhinestones  and you have a great card to give to someone you care about.

Using other scraps from the Stacked With Love DSP,  I created a cute little bag for goodies or a gift card. I did not add a sentiment since I will wait for the exact time of giving and come up with what I want to say. Perhaps I will choose it for Valentine’s Day, Birthday, Anniversary, or Just Because card. The possibilities are endless. Using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and some Basic Rhinestones, and some real red ribbon, gives the final touches to this project another layer of goodness.

The Lotus Blossom Stamp Set is one very unique set that is in the SAB catalog of free items.

two toned lotus blossomIt is quite unique, as it is a 3 step stamp set that gives amazing depth. In this case I took it a step further by using two different color inks to make a bigger statement

Each stamp is placed on a block and stamped in the order you see below to get the depth of this flower. Because of the tab at the top of each photo polymer stamp, it is very simple to line the stamps up each time you add the next layer. Snip20150105_15

 

 

The sample to the left uses the same color each time. The trick is to stamp off once after re-inking stamp #3  which allows the previous layers to show through.
