Love you card made using Simply Charmed.

Hello, friends!

 Today's card is made using the Simply Charmed cartridge. This cartridge has a ton of cutsey on it which I am not over crazy about, BUT there is also some really pretty cuts too! This tree is one of those cuts! There are several trees actually, but this one is my favorite. Everything on this cartridge has a face on it, but I am not a huge fan of that. Lucky for me it is really easy to omit that portion and get faceless objects! Can I get a woohoo? WOOHOO!!

I used Close To My Heart paper and SU! ribbon.
I cut the tree(pg 55 in the handbook) out at 3 1/2".and used some flower stickers that coordinates with the paper.
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I will see you all back here tomorrow!

Love this card Melanie! I feel exactly the same way about this cartridge...faces on random objects are creepy to me! I didn't even have this cartridge on my wish list until I realized I could hide the faces on my Gypsy!

What a cute card. I like how you did the bow at the bottom this time. I still haven't mastered bow making myself, but I keep trying!

Scrap Vamp said...

Great card! That tree is so cute and I love the bow at the bottom!

Adorable card! .... and I do like the cutesy stuff, so would love this cart. Your card is so springy looking and since my significant other has plowed and now is out snowblowing about 2.5 feet of snow - made me warmer. Thanks for sharing.

Such a pretty card Melanie! And I agree with you about not always needing a face on something... I made a card last night that I thought came out adorable... and I used this same cartridge.... but omitted the face cause I wanted to use a face stamp instead.... Thank goodness for the Design Studio and the Gypsy where they both can edit what you dislike! LOL :o)

Thank you for another inspiring card, I love your use of colors. Where do you purchase the bows used on your cards? I have searched craft stores near me. I have the Simply Charmed cartridge and plan many uses for it this year.

Adorable card. That cart is one of the most recent purchases I've made and I haven't had a chance to use it yet...thanks for the tip about being able to omit the faces. I might have to scraplift this one! ;)

I was wondering did the snow finally melt yet so your child could go back to school.

Cute card. I myself am loving this cartridge, but I'm not necessarily using the face features either.

Angela said...

I think this card is country cottage-ish. I love it. I didn't know about hiding the faces on this cartridge and so glad you mentioned it. That's one reason I didn't think I wanted it that bad. Thanks for the info and the cute project idea.

Kimberli said...

I love that tree!! What a pretty card, those colors together are beautiful!

PurpleLadyBug said...
