truly, madly

sundays are bittersweet! it's the last day of the weekend, which means you can still enjoy not working, but it's also the last day of the weekend, which means, work comes tomorrow! (for me at least!) ha ha!

anyway, i made a card for the most current sketch for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge
the sketch was created with speech bubbles...hello! i knew i had to play along!

and after going back and forth between actually using speech bubbles or changing things up (clouds? arrows? hearts?) i stuck with the speech bubbles, i just can't get enough! :)
so here's my card:

it's VERY clean and simple. all of the stamps are from the mama elephant stamp set, bling. i stamped and fussy cut out the speech bubbles and hearts. then i popped up a few of each for some dimension. i also added glossy accents to all of the hearts. 

the potty people - my experiment of the day!! i used my dies from my favorite things (boy meets girl) and then used the negative as a stencil for my embossing paste! fun, right? i didn't the girl first, so you can tell she's a little...uneven to say the least. but the i got it all sorted out when it time to use the boy stencil.

so that's it! lots of fun, but still simple! (believe me...i resisted added enamel dots, sequins, more name it! it was so hard! what do you think? does it need something else?)


  1. Love the embossed paste Samantha! Your card is adorable... I'm gonna have to give this a try one day :)
