Simple Sentiments

The One Layer Wednesday challenge at Simplicity this week is to create a single layer card with NO image stamps, just words or sentiments, and we must use more than one. I hope this card follows the rules, technically I never used any images, but the words form a heart.

I masked the card base with a heart shape, and just random stamped 3 different "love" sentiment stamps in 3 shades of pink: CTMH Baby Pink, Blush and Tulip.  Can't get much simpler than that! I like the simplicity of it.  I adore CAS(clean and simple) cards, but I have a habit of overdoing it.  I almost added some bling and ribbon, but then stopped myself (aren't you proud of me?) 
Pop over to Simplicity to see some other great CAS cards with sentiment stamps, maybe you'll want to play along!

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Well done Lorrinda this is perfect. I struggle with CAS cause I always feel they look unfinished but you have really nailed this one.
