Smile, I Like You

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card that's a bit different for me - there's no cat or animal on this card!  I was inspired by the Doodlebug Mini Love Notes that were part of the recent Simon Says Stamp Valentine's Kit (I was particularly inspired by Siv's card #33).

I didn't get the kit, so I decided to make my own love notes!  I used a bunch of my Your Next Stamp products to make my card.


Stamps:  Your Next Stamp -  Cute Alpha Squares (xo), Coffee Break (I like you), Hammie Coffee and Tea (smile), Mini Heart Ink Splatter (stamped a vertical stripe)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Angel Pink
Dies: Your Next Stamp - Mini Envelope Die (envelope, scalloped note, heart), Animal Bookmark Add-on (heart), Coffee Right Meow (tiny hearts), Cute Alpha Squares, Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles
Paper:  Patterned paper (Lots of Flowers Paper Pack, Pebbles We Belong Together), gold foil posterboard, Recollections Red, Recollections Pink Buttons, Staples White
Other:  Embossing folder (Cuttlebug Cross My Heart), Posca white paint marker and Pilot fineliner black (for doodled stitching on envelopes)

I was inspired by the colours in  Your Next Stamp Colour Challenge 82, and I've got all of them.  There's a tiny bit of green in the floral envelope.



I would like to support the following challenges: A Gem of a Challenge Have a Heart UE; Allsorts Love is in the Air 3/3; Cardz TV 34 Anything Goes 3/3; Crafty Friends Love is in the Air 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper February UE; Creatalicious 132 AG w optional love, anniversary, thinking of you UE; Creative Inspirations Love is in the Air and/or Pink and Red Colours UE; Creative Moments AG 3/3; Cut it Up Layers of Love (at least 3 layers) 1E; Cute Card Thursday Love UE; Deep Ocean Love is All Around UE; Die Cuttin' Divas Valentine's Day 1/3; Di's Digi Designs Lots of Pink and Red 3/3; DL.ART February Linky AG 1/d; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Hiding in My Craftroom Super Scraps Saturday (all die-cuts from scraps) 2/3; Jo's Scrap Shack FFC 220 AG 3/3; Joy Clair Month of Love UE; Love to Scrap Love Theme 5/5; MHK Designs February Inspiration (I was inspired by the colours); Mod Squad Have a Heart 3/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; PINspirational Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the colours and the Valentine's theme) 1/5; Power Poppy Power and Spark Love to Sparkle UE; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday It Must be Love 4/5; Simon Says Stamp Monday Take Note (love notes, graph paper) 1/5; STAMPlorations Paint it Red UE; The Corrosive February AG 2/3; Through the Craftroom Door AG 1/2; Word Art Wednesday 320-321 AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk2 5/5
