Sending Love Your Way

Ain't Love Grand is a stamp set that went on my wish list immediately upon seeing it in the new 2011-2012 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog.  This is one of the new sets that can be purchased with hostess dollars when you have a qualifying order.  I love the versatility of the images in this set.  I used a couple of other new items on this card as well.  I embossed the Crumb Cake card base with the new Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in my Big Shot.  I thought the card still needed a little something at the bottom but didn't want to add a lot of bulk.  I cut my pieces of Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and criss-crossed them, then added a Poppy Parade Small Heart Punch in the center.  I added some sparkle with the new Dazzling Details from the Holiday Mini CatalogDazzling Details is a type of glitter glue that also adds dimension to a project.

Hearts are always good - we can never have too much love spread around (do I sound like a '60s flower child )

Love it! You're making me want this stamp set and this embossing background (which is already on my list but you just moved it up!)
