You are Resplendent!

I used the pretty Simon Says Stamp Deco Heart die and cool CZ Design/Simon Says Stamp sentiment to make a card that I thought combined them sweetly:)!...
 Cathy Zielske...AKA CZ Design, has a line of stamps and dies over at Simon Says Stamp!  She is funny and fun, and though I've never met her, I like her...and I like her style!  She makes cool stamps and dies, and the partial sentiment stamp that I used on today's card is just one such example.  I DID use a "You are" from another stamp set, as I felt my card needed a bigger sentiment and the heart needed a little bit of curvy font, so I simply used the last part of her sentiment, the word resplendent!  Ok...few I have asked know what that word means, but I had heard it on a Disney show(yes, I DO learn from Disney...watching A LOT of it with Noah:):)!!).  Resplendent means: attractive and impressive through being richly colorful, having a very bright or beautiful appearance, has great beauty, and is a pleasure to behold, give you a few.  I thought the one brightly colored heart amongst the black and white went with resplendent...impressive through being richly colorful...and that the one who receives this card will be someone loved and like that pretty pink heart!!  I layered the black die cut heart three times, and a couple white below the black with the heart attached to the layered black hearts.  I layered with the two white layers to give the heart die cut real depth for when I put the card together.  Here's a close up...
I really love this card...thanks Cathy for the cool vibe you bring to the crafting your style, lady:)!! This was great resplendent you!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. So beautiful Lisa! Love this so much

  2. Stunning card, and perfectly resplendent!

  3. Love it Lisa, Is the BLACK Lines border a STAMP or Special Paper w/ Lines?
    I don't see it in your products used? I noticed you use it frequently. Please share- I love it.

  4. Hi Helen! The black lined paper I used on this card is recycled paper from a local restaurant's gift card holders(which are a 1/2 sheet of paper). The striped paper I use on most of my cards has lines that are a bit bigger, and that paper is from My Favorite Things. But...I wanted the really small lines of the recycled paper for this card, so I didn't have any paper to put in my list. You could appreciate the restaurant, Helen...Taste Unlimited:):)!!

  5. Baahaahaa. Very resourceful!! I see the Paper listed now on another one of your card supply lists.. YAY. I will get the paper. LOVE

  6. I love this so much! I have this die, and decided to try it. I haven't had much luck with the die in the past... it's so delicate... and it doesn't seem to cut cleanly. But I decided to give it another try... and sure enough, I can't get a good cut. Do I just have a bad die? Did your die cut cleanly? I tried all sorts of sandwiches to get it to work... and it just doesn't seem to cut well. Boo. I wanted to make a similar card, as it's so pretty.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
