CDD Love Theme Week

Hello everyone!  I have a couple projects to share with you today for this weeks Love theme at the Craftin Desert Diva's blog. I made this heart framed easel card for my son and I used 3 different stamp sets. We always joke back and forth about who loves who more and this sentiment from Simply Said was perfect.

 I stamped it on a tag from the Short and Sweet Tags set. The little envelope is a stamp from Sending Love. The paper is from American Crafts. The card base is a die cut from the ever so talented The sheltie is an SVG I made myself using an image that I found and altered to look like my dog Bruno.

For the inside I used this sentiment from Sending Love. Here are close ups of the sentiments.

I also made a shaker card using the bee stamps from Sending Love. This is the first shaker card I've ever made and it is for my sister who bought me the sequins.

The paper is Humble Honeybee by American Crafts. The card base is from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge.  I ran into a little problem with static and the flat confetti. I'm going to order an anti-static pad that I read about to help with my future shaker cards.  I taped off this sentiment to stretch it out on this hand cut banner and replaced the word bee with the actual bee stamp. I love that little bee! This is one of my favorite stamp sets!!

Here are the stamps I used and you can get them all HERE.
