I used the Love is in the Air Stamp Set for this clean and simple card! Perfect for valentine’s day or any time you want to share love with someone.

This card was easy to create. Simple stamp the plane then the heart lines twice behind it. Next stamp the sentiment. The last step is to round the corner.

Who Doesn’t Want A Hug?

I’m back again today with another card for Less is More Week 173.  Today’s card is very simple and clean!  I’ve combined my love of water-coloring and die-cutting to create my card.

For those of you who don’t know a couple of weeks ago I start a watercolor class and absolutely loved it.  Before, the class started we were instructed to practice using our “stuff” and I created a couple of single pieces.  I had hoped to use my pieces during the class but never did because I create other cards.  So, when Less is More decided that their recipe this week would be Die Cut, I knew I had to use this piece on my card. No need to throw anything away, especially a big Hug as pretty as this.


I know I wanted to keep my card very simple because the watercolor image is so powerful by itself.

I die cut out 4 hugs and attached them to my watercolor piece to create some dimension on the front of my card.

Side note: I’ve been working on improving my photograph.  The background of these pictures are a little dark but I like the effect.  It gives the card a warm feeling which is what I love in the words of Olaf, “I Love Warm Hugs“!!

So, what do you think? Do you like “Warm Hugs” too?

Let me know.
