Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along with last week's challenge! It is Valentine's week ~ can you feel love in the air? Well, we are pretty sure almost everyone who reads the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog has one thing in common: we love stamps! So this is your chance to jump in and join us ~ whether you use a favorite technique or create a project featuring your favorite stamp ~ enjoy! 
I love the versatility of the many fabulous images in the Mini Blueprints 2 stamp set and since Valentine's Day is only a few days away, I framed the sweet cupid image with a chipboard Ornate Frame:
which I layered on top of a textured and painted background:
For the sentiment I used a stamped frame / sentiment combination from Simple Sayings:
Using the scrap backgrounds from my initial project, I created a card:
featuring the sweet cupid heat embossed along with another versatile sentiment from Simple Sayings:
Thanks so much for visiting!

LOVE BOTH, Mona! Your BG is just GORGEOUS and I love the pretty colors you chose. That frame is just perfect with that cupid stamp!

Stella said...

Oh my this is perfect for Valentines day. The cupid stamp is spot on the theme of love:). Love the carboard background of your first card and that mix of colors. Your second card is modern with a wonderful touch of romance ( that cutie of cupid again..) and these beautiful colors. Wonderful cards!

Beautiful project Mona. Love the sweet image in the frame, the shape of the card, the pretty flowers... so many different textures come together to make this master-piece.

Carol McCready said...

Gorgeous card and wall hanging. Thanks for sharing.

Mary Elizabeth said...

Honestly, as I looked at the details of the wall hanging and the card, I just had to smile. It was fun to see the industrial sort of embossing underneath those lovely soft colors in the background. Perfect. Love how you left the blueprint stamp the star of the show in both pieces. Wonderful. -- Mary Elizabeth
