Celebrate today card made using the Paper Lantern stamp set.

Hello, friends!

Are you guys as stunned and sad about losing the great Whitney Houston? I was patiently waiting for her to come out with an incredible comeback album. That is not in the cards though now I am afraid. She was one of my absolute favorite singers of all time and I never thought I would be as sad as I am about this. I suppose heaven now has another angel to sing in its choir.

Today I have a card that does not have any Cricut. I know I know the horror! I just felt like stamping using this stamp set and came up with this. Now this blog is not turning into a stamping blog. Sometimes you just want to quickly stamp something. Know what I mean? This card may have taken 15 minutes!

I used a really pretty set from Close To My Heart called Paper Lanterns. It is a cheerful set that lends itself to plain stamping or will work great with the Cricut!

All supplies used are from Close To My Heart except the ribbon.
I traced the lanterns with Stardust Glitter Gel.

February Specials
The February stamp of the month is called Thoughtful Tidings and coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge. As usual it is $17.95 if purchased alone or only $5 with any purchase of $50 or more!








Have a MAGICAL Monday!

What a great card...and you are right sometimes it's fun to do something different and this is adorable and fun....and a happy card.

I too am sad about loosing Whitney Houston....I loved her singing too and oh boy what she'd been thru and was so happy when it seemed she had come thru it all much stronger. She will be greatly missed a great voice.

The thing that makes me most sad about Whitneys death is people putting her on a pedestal, unfortunately she made awful decisions and wasted her God given talent. Love the card. I also like to stamp.

Love the card... such bright colors!!!! you have me thinking spring!!! Plus it is a good thing to use other tools sometimes... we buy so many tools and so we need to use them all at one time or another.... That is why the paper crafts are so much fun. Question?? with all the moving of things in your home, are you running into stamps you forgot you have????? :) Thanks so much for sharing!!!
