A Week of Tag Talk - Wedded Bliss



I am trying to fall in love with our photopolymer stamps.  I love Stampin' Up! products and have tried everything at least once but it has taken me some time to really like clear stamps.  I know why they are great - you can see where you put them, they are super sticky, and the designs that SU tested out over the last year were some of the cutest I've seen.
 
But they get ink on your fingers, they are too sticky sometimes, and I turn them all red when I clean them.  I have weaknesses, I admit it.  But with this last order, I ordered THREE sets and was determined to fall in love with them at least as much as my wood blocks (but not more than my favorite product ever.... dimensionals!)
 
This card's layout was inspired by this pin from Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/156570524520493641/  I loved this layout and started out with something very close to it.
 
And then I started messing around.... and then I realized I needed a heart.... and then I realized that I needed something other than an embossing folder and the photopolymer stamps let you align everything very precisely.  And we ended up with a card that makes me quite happy.  Now if my friends would just get married so I can use it (and if you read this, you know who you are, this doesn't count for my monthly get married zing...)
 
 
I used the bracket punch on the end of the Cherry Cobbler banner to show another way to use it. I think it adds a little elegant flair to the card too!
