You Plus Me Masculine Valentine (1 of 3)

You Plus Me P2 MNelson

I hope you’ve had a good week!  Happy Friday!!!

“You Plus Me” is the second stamp set we were able to play with at our BZBStampers Stamp Together!  This is the first of three projects designed by Meredith Nelson, one of the sweetest people I know!  It also features the new Bow Punch and the cool Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack.   I have fallen in LOVE with this DSP.  One side has Valentine inspired designs and colors AND the other side is all Black & White designs, completely different from the other side.  Sweet, LOVE IT!!!

Today’s design starts with a long-narrow base in Crumb Cake (3″ x 5-1/2″).  The the Black & White arrow head band is from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  The bow is made using the new Bow punch in Real Red.  Love this!  Next we stamped Twitterpated from the “You Plus Me” stamp set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  We also punched a small heart (Owl Builder Punch) from Red Glimmer paper and attached.  Finally, this just makes the card–if I do say so myself, and I do…… we separated the Gold Sequin Trim and applied to card with liquid glue.  [TIP:  I really wanted the sequins to add more sparkle, and I knew they could!, so I lightly creased them in half one way, then other opposite so they had more dimension.  Now when the card is moved around it “sparkles”.  YAY!]  I hope you enjoy today’s design and remember “sharing” and “liking” AND commenting is caring.

Have a great weekend!
