Sweet Simple Sunday

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.  Just checking in with a sweet and simple card using the Measure of Love stamp set.    This was one of the sets I just plain wanted.   I think it was those cherries and their little stems or maybe the bowl with the hearts.  I cannot really explain it, I just wanted it.  


I paired it with the happiest pack of paper, Pattern Party (only available as part of the Stampin' Rewards program).  I  think these two were made for each other.  I stamped on Basic White CS die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies.  I was surprised how easy it was to line things up, even the stems on the cherries!   I used Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Crushed Curry, and Pool Party for the colors,  all of which are in the Pattern Party DSP.


The "sweet" sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set.   The cute Poppy Parade flower was cut using the Pierced Blooms dies.   The center of the flower is from the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots.

Do you see it?  The inside of the card?  Doesn't it look like a punched out circle of the Pattern Party DSP?   It isn't, this was stamped using two stamps from the Measure of Love set. This is the another reason I think the Pattern Party DSP and the Measure of Love stamp set were made for each other.  


So cute , right?  This was such a fun discovery.  It took me a couple of tries to figure out how these two stamps went together.  How did I finally get it right?  I looked at the DSP and there was the answer, after that it was easy.  I found it was easier to stamp the centers and leaves (Granny Apple Green) first and then the flowers (Poppy Parade).  

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any question about any of the products I used today.
