Today…remember how loved you are.

Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we are loved and who we are is more than enough. I loved this Angie girl and the sentiments that came with her. I just had to stamp her and color her up.

The stamp set is A Little Warmth, an Angie girl. I suppose technically, she is a little more fall in nature, but she looked powerful to me and ready to take on the world with her coffee, purse and power colors.

I stamped both her and the sentiments with Brutus Monroe Raven ink and colored her up using Copic markers. I decided to cut her image into an oval using a My Favorite Things STAX die that had cross stitch details on it. The diecut behind the girl, is a tonic studios die. I cu that out of some copper mirrored cardstock. I decided to purposely not pop out all of the inside pieces. It gave my card a little more distressed look without too much mess.

Finishing up the card, the “Today” sentiment was popped up and I laid the “remember how loved you are strip just under it. Rounding out the card some copper jewels were added for a little bling. I can’t leave a card without some bling. 🙂

AND…since it is Wednesday, and if you are anything like me, are hoping this week wraps up quickly so I can enjoy the weekend, I thought a 2nd card would be fun. It’s simple, but classic.

Sometimes simple is best. I used one of the butterflies form the Butterfly Beauty Kit. I heat embossed it using some Brutus Monroe Coral embossing powder and then fussy cut it out.

The background was a My Favorite Things coverplate that is no longer available. I placed strips of foam tape behind the thick strips and put it onto a white card base to give it some dimension. I stamped the sentiment, “you were just what I needed.” using Brutus Monroe Raven ink. I got this sentiment in one of the grab bags, so I don’t know what kit it is from, however, a simple search shows these two kits have a sentiment that is very similar. You Are Just What I Needed and Just What I Needed

The butterfly was adhered using some pop dots and finally, some dark blue bling added. They really sparkle when the light hits them just so.

Don’t forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the Unity stamp prize pack at the end of the week. Have a fabulous Wednesday. You’ve got this! Make the day count!!

  1. We always love Angie Girls, don’t we. The copper really warms up the card, as do the colors you choose. The butterfly is great, but Angie Girls remain an all time favorite for me

  2. Both cards are just lovely! Of course, I love all the Angie Girls as well as butterflies. That’s a no-brainer! lol But I also love the pretty die you used with the Angie Girl. I have one that’s similar and love when a lot of the pieces don’t fall out. I love that look.
