The Designer Series papers in the Occasions catalog are so richly colored and so versatile!  There were plenty of combinations that I liked, but this one with its rainbow-shaped domes was the Gold Medal winner.  (Admit it, you’re staying up late to watch the Olympics too,)  Punch a couple of hearts, stamp a message and cut it out with a framlit and you’ve got a valentine, anniversary, birthday, or just because card ready to go.

Maui Stamper Retro Fresh Love YaDimensionals rule the adhesive world!  Both the heart and the word bubble get a lift, and that’s a big part of what makes this simple layout work.  The Stripes TIEF makes a difference too – those two elements give my projects that  “Bam!”

There’s a little bit of Baked Brown Sugar (BBS) ink rubbed onto the Naturals trim to darken it and give it the same color tone as the rest of the card.  That trim takes ink really well.  (So do my fingers but that’s not what we’re interested in here.)
