Ebony & Ivory Blog Hop

I have joined a blog hop to get my stamping mojo going.  A great group of stampers joined this blog hop with SUStars

Whether you joined me from Angela's blog, or a just visiting me today, I hope you hop along with everyone.  You will see some really cute ideas that you just may have to case. You know, Copy And Share Everything....

Sneak Peek SAB set Elementary Elements
Anyhow, here is my first card.  It was one of those things that I had it all in my mind but it didn't come out the way I wanted.  So, I had to play and play with it. It also didn't help that I had left my Big Shot at school over Christmas vacation.  Finally, I got something I liked.  The set is from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Isn't it cute?  It's called Elementary Elements.  It is FREE with a $50 purchase.  How awesome if FREE?!?

My next card is using a set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it!  It's called PS I Love You.
With all the "love" verses it could be used for a special someone all year long.  It is NOT just for Valentine's Day as far as I am concerned.  Any time you want to make the special love of your life a special card-this would be the perfect set to use!

Since this card is for the ultimate love of my life the "Love You" is in red.  I didn't want the point of the card to be missed LOL.  The cupids are stamped with Stazon to get that rich black that I love so much.  The background is stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I hope the little cupids in the card hit their mark with my sweetie.  (Ok-that was a bad joke.) 

Now, hop on over to see Robbie's blog and check out her awesome ideas.  I love how most of her cards match on the inside & out with coordinating envelopes.

Until next time,

Very nice Stace! Love the embossed circles under the cupids and I like the use of the SAB set as well!

Both of your cards are really stunning in their simplicity. I love them both!

These are both so cute. I love the understated elegance of the background under the cupids. Love both of the cards actually.

I love the way you did the circle of hears with the clear embossing powder and made a background. Love the cupids in this set, too! TFS!
