You Make Me Smile - Share the Love

We are still celebrating February with Share the Love!  Today I'm sharing another card I created with this fun stamp!

For this card I used our Watercolor Paints to create a wash of color for the background. Then I used 2nd generation stamping to stamp the camera on to of the watercolor paint.  I used a couple of hearts from the Charlotte Compliments in the center of the Black/Gold ribbon.  The bottom border is from a Charlotte PML card that I cut apart.   I finished the card with a hand-drawn border.

I've got one more card to share so be sure to come back to visit!

Remember! The stamp is available during the month of February ONLY!  When you purchase this stamp, $7 will be donated to Operation Smile!

I had recently completed the Charlotte Workshop Your Way kit and had a full sheet of Picture My Life cards, just a few scraps and some compliments left so I created cards using my leftoverw from the kit.  Today, I'll share my favorite card I created.

The piece with flowers is one of the PML cards while the other printed piece is a scrap of B&T paper I had left.  

I stamped on the little square compliment and added it to look like a piece of paper coming from the typewriter.  I clustered more compliments to add more accent to the card.

This is a fun stamp!  Come back for more samples that I created with this stamp and leftovers from Charlotte paper suite.

Remember!  This stamp is ONLY available during the month of February for $17.95.
