Hi Stamping Friends!

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a fun and safe celebration and are ready for an amazing new year! 

Mini best of 25 CM1226BBye Bye "Best" Club—This month is the final one for my special Best of 25 Years Club, featuring stamp sets with the most popular images from the past quarter century.  We started the club a month late in 2013, so we saved the Best of Love stamp set for our last set this January. I'm featuring one of our cards below!

I've had so much fun with this anniversary collection!  I loved having everyone try to guess the set each month, and it was fun to be surprised!  It was also a little challenging to come up with card designs quickly, since I was getting the set at the same time as my club members.  I'll miss it!

Thank You!  I'd like to give a shout-out to everyone who participated in the Best of 25 Years Club: Angie, Becky, Beth, Cindi, Jessica, Joani, Karen, Laura, Lesley, Nancy, Pat, and Peggy,  Thanks for trying something new with me!  Hope you've all had just as much fun as I have!

The Best of 25 Years collector stamps sets are still available thru March 31, 2014.

Love you much - two cool

I adore the Black and Vanilla patterns of the Modern Medley Designer Series Papers and thought it would make the perfect background to highlight the "love you much" sentiment from Best of Love.  

Love you much - v 

Background Panels—I started with a Very Vanilla card base, then cut another piece of Very Vanilla at 4" x 5-1/4" to make a foundation for the paper strips.  Each DSP strip measures 4" x 1-1/4".  The Real Red panel is 4" x 1" and is texture embossed with the hearts Adorning Accents Folder.

Love you much - v2 

Heart Sentiment—I stamped the Best of Love sentiment in Black StazOn onto Very Vanilla and die-cut it with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits.  It's accented with a 1/8" Real Red Tafetta Ribbon bow, adhered with a Glue Dot, as well as a Real Red heart punched with the Owl Punch and a Rhinestone Jewel.

Love you much - h 

I love how quick and easy this design is to create!  For my second version, I flipped some of the papers to use different patterns, and I embossed the red with Perfect Polka Dots.

You can't see it well, but I also used Dimensionals to pop up the entire background layer on the card base. Just a subtle detail, but I like the variation.
