Swappin Time Again

Whenever a new catalog comes out I hostess a New Catalog Swap on Splitcoaststampers for demonstrators. I usually take a few spots so I can have an excuse to play with any new toys I get. This is one of the swaps I did for one of those groups. Ilike to make swaps that are cards a customer could look at and know she could duplicate it easily, but still has some element that makes it stand out a bit. I don't know if you can see that I used the Crop-o-dile to dry emboss little circles across the card where the sentiment is at. Just a little something to jazz it up a bit but so easy anyone could do it. Overall this is really very simple to make but yet I think it is really elegant looking.
This was made using the new set Always. I didn't order it right away, but it was one that caught my eye. As Valentines Day approached it was calling to me even more! I thought the heart that is in this set would make beautiful Valentines. Well, I finally broke down and ordered it and I ever glad I did! Sometimes you see a stamp set and think you must add it to your collection, then you get it and hardly make anything with it. I've done that LOTS of times! Then there are those sets you get and you can't stop using them-Always is that set for me right now. I LOVE this set. I have really enjoyed using it!
Supplies Used: Basic Black cs, grosgrain ribbon, Black Staz On ink, Soft Sky cs, ink, Whisper White cs, Ticket Corner Punch, Crop-o-dile, Always Stamp set.
