The inspiration photo:

I love the touch of color with bold black and white patterns. Here my card.

I used Papertrey’s Garden Variety stamp set and Seed Packet die as my focal point. I die cut the background circle with a Spellbinders die and embossed it with the tiny dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The black and white stripe was die cut with one of PTI’s Half and Half die collection, one of my go to favorites.

The seed packet was embellished with my favorite flower die PTI’s Bloombuilders #3, a gingham check ribbon and a few pearls.

Thanks for stopping by.


This card was inspired by Nicole Heady’s Make It Monday #51-Dimensional Sentiment Banner tutorial. Because Valentine’s Day is so close, that theme was the first thing that came to mind.


The background is Papertrey’s Rosie Posie stamped on cream card stock with chalk ink. The hearts are Spellbinders die cuts, two are stamped with Papertrey stamps. The middle heart is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I always look forward to Make It Monday tutorials.
