just a note to say thanks. . .
for this card I used more of my new FAVE Flirty paper (again! And I hope you aren't bored with it yet, because I might have another next week!) I always love trimming images from patterned paper, and that was probably the first thing that attracted me to this paper pack. Sure, I can stamp flowers, and cut them out. (And I do!) But there's something about just trimming and glueing. I paired it with a sentiment stamp from A Friend Like You.
This layout is one of my go-to card layouts. I do it all the time. See? Look. . .here are some other CTMH cards from long ago. . .same thing. Patterned paper strip along the bottom, ribbon, twine, or cardstock strip above it, and then some sort of sentiment and image. Totally different cards but sort of all the same idea.
Sometimes I get in a rut. I look at my cards, and they all sort of look the same.
But I'm going to tell myself that sometimes, that's okay. (Humor me, okay?)
Thanks for stopping by today!

Today I'd like to share a card and a project using the new Flirty paper pack, and the coordinating Love Blooms stamp set. I LOVE the colors on this paper. It's perfect for this time of year, as we sit in late summer, teetering on the edge of fall.
Also perfect for fall is a QUICK and simple project to dress up your dinner table. I cut a strip of the new burlap ribbon, stuck some two-sided tape to make a loop, and wha-laaaa, a napkin ring! I stamped the flower a few times onto some Flirty paper, trimmed sections of it and layered with foam tape and adhered the leaves behind it. I distressed up the edges a bit, and stuck it onto my burlap napkin ring. Easy-peasy, just the way I like it! I am sort of obsessed with this new Rasberry color. I think I'm going to run out of it VERY quickly! It's gorgeous!
To coordinate, I created this card using the same stamp set, and paper. I actually made quite a FEW cards using this paper, but I'll make you wait until next week.
Have a beautiful almost-fall week!
