I love you SEW, yes I do!

Hello again! I have share with one of my top picks from the Occasions Catalogue, called {I Love you Sew}, which is the host/hostess set. Love, love, love it. I am a sucker for punny sentiments and sayings, and this set sure is full of them. 

For this card, I have very few layers - which is very "unlike" me... but, with the busyness of the sequins and buttons I didn't want to distract from how fab they are. I tend to hoard both buttons and sequins, does anyone else do this? I went with LOTS & LOTS of bright, cheery colours. Here's the list: Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Real Red, & Old Olive, yep - I that's it!! That's it she says. I love colour so why not use just about all of them, right?! 

I stamped a lot, I mean a lot of sequins and buttons, both small and large. Definitely adds a fun element with all the colours. I didn't want to overwhelm the card too much by adding more layer than necessary and I didn't want to cover up too much of the lovely colourful stamped images so I went very simple with the add-ons. Just a strip of Cucumber Crush, a strip of Pacific Point - stamped with the cross-stitching using {Archival Black Ink}. Then a couple of banners, one in Crushed Curry and one in Pumpkin Pie stamped with I love you sew sentiment. Attached with a couple of staples and done! It did take a bit of time to do the multicoloured stamping, but it was worth it. I hope you like it!

Since already had my stamps all ready to go, I decided to make another card... 

This time I went with a few extra images, the paint swipe and beads to go with the buttons and sequins. Diagonal paint swipes with Cucumber Crush added a bold POP of colour. 

Again, like with the first card I didn't want to make it even more busy so I kept the add-on's more basic. This time to go with the banners, I added a few "real" sequins from the {Brights Sequins Assortment} and a wooden "celebrate" sentiment from {Expressions Natural Elements}. Oh, and a bit of {Gold Metallic Thread}. 

I hope you have liked my card shares, have a super day! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
