Encouragement Card - Love Conquers All

Hello all you wonderful crafters!!  I think everyone is having to deal with very hot weather all over the map.  It has been over 105 all week and doesn't seem to be cooling down yet.  I have been having fun creating with my new Cricut Artiste Cartridge that I received on Thursday. If you haven't seen it; check out my two videos I just created and put on You Tube.  Click here for the Cricut Art Philosophy video demonstrating how to use the card feature.  Click here for the Cricut Artiste video showing you how to use the two handbooks.

This card was created before I got my new Artiste cartridge.  I actually made this one without using my Cricut; which is amazing.  I rarely make a card without using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I wanted to use this paper and a Digi stamp from Bugaboo stamp - Love Conquers All.  I hope you enjoy this card. 



I didn't finish the inside yet; because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.  I am sure I can use it for several different occasions when I need it.  I love Bugaboo Digi stamps, especially the silhouettes.  They are so elegant and so easy to use.  You can change the colors if you want too; but I loved the black on white for this card.



Supplies used for this card:

Card base - 5 1/2 x 6
Patterned Paper - S.E.I. Couture
White cardstock - AC Specialty Paper - Pearl
White Cardstock for stamp - Reflections
Digi Stamp - Bugaboo Digital Stamp - Love Conquers All
Butterfly paper - Coredinations
Bling - Silver - Studio 112 Adhesive gems
Bling - clear - want2scrap.com
Foam Tape

  13. Hi, Gloria! Enjoyed visiting your blog and wanted to thank you for your kind comments on my mojo card and for following me! I see we have nursing in common and I'm envious of your retirement - lol! Hopefully only a few more years left for me before I can retire. Love this silhouette image and the soft color palette - beautiful card!

    1. Hi Wanda, I noticed the nursing after I had already left a comment. I am happy I am retired; but it was a forced retirement, not by choice as you can read under About Me. I would rather be healthier,able to work and be with people. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I appreciate the lovely compliment. Have a fabulous week! Hugs, Gloria
