"Love"ly and Simple

The new release over at Simon Says Stamp, Stamptember® is full of new stamps, dies, stencils and more, as well as a very pretty embossing plate, Cora, a design just like the background stamp that came out in a prior release.  This embossing plate is BEAUTIFUL!!!!  I made two, very simple cards using the plate and a die cut Simon sentiment...
 This plate is very thin, and not at all like embossing plates that I have worked with before.  It does NOT use the embossing pads, but rather works like a die cut...I actually used a metal shim AS WELL as an extra layer of paper with my card, to get a really embossed impression.  I absolutely LOVE the delicate and beautiful look of this plate...ahhh...and paired with a "love" sentiment (all those hearts were just screaming love, but you could use ANY sentiment!).  I layered the "love" and simply adhered it to the embossed card.  White on white...I loved it!!  Here's a closeup...

The second one is just like the first, except I attempted to use some color ....
I have been unable to get the Tonic Dual Tipped Blender Brushes...not available ANYWHERE!!!!!!(I HAVE linked them below at Simon, for when they DO come in!)....but I DID have a makeup brush that I got with some foundation that I wasn't going to use, so I tryed my hand at blending some color with my makeup brush...not perfect, but I thought it looked cool...the white sentiment against the pink looked cool, too!  Here's a close up...
Ok...SO...MUCH...FUN!!!!  SIMPLE, PRETTY, FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. These are beautiful!
    Do you ever have classes? Love your cards and I think I live near you.

  2. These are lovely. The white on white is stunning. I have used makeup brushes before and they give a very soft look like your second card. So pretty.

  3. Beautiful cards, Lisa. Perfect for a wedding or anniversary. Love your CAS cards. Have you tried the Clarity Stencil Brushes? Perhaps those will work for you.

  4. Wow, beautiful in its simplicity!
