When I opened the Occasions catalog for the first time, I was hoping for a really nice Valentine’s Day stamp set. I have to be truthful, I really didn’t like the You Plus Me stamp set because I didn’t know what the word ‘twitterpated’ meant. I really didn’t want this stamp set because of that. I loved the font but not the word. As a matter of fact, I bought the paper during the pre-order but not the stamp set.
And then, I got the bright idea to look up the definition of that word, and when I did, I fell in love the word! So if you are like me and don’t know the meaning of the word twitterpated, here is a vocabulary lesson for you too.
Isn’t that adorable? Well, know that I now what Twitterpated means, I really like the word. And yes, I caved I bought the stamp set! (If I bought the stamp set and Stacked with Love Paper stack together, I could have saved 15%). And it was the perfect stamp to use to create this card just for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Here is the sketch:
I have to say that I just love this stamp set, I love the twitterpated sentiment with the little heart, and I love the paper. This simple sketch really lets the elements shine because it’s not too busy. The wonderful Stacked With Love paper stack did all the work for when it came to choosing the fabulous color combination of Real Red & Crisp Canteloupe. The patterns are fun and the heart was a cinch to crop out using the Heart framelits dies. I used Versamark ink and White embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment onto the Real Red card stock. A little flower punched from the same paper adds a finishing touch. Here’s a close-up of the sentiment.
Stop over at the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see what others have done with this sketch. And challenge yourself; use this sketch to create a card yourself! It’s a simple sketch that has so many possibilities, you’ll probably find yourself going back to this sketch layout time and time again.
So now that you now what Twitterpated means, do you love it as much as I do? If you’d like to purchase the You Plus Me stamp set, make sure you bundle it with the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack and save 15%. You can order this bundle, and any other items thru my secure on-line store here.
