More fun with Jo, our January Guest Designer...

Happy Thursday everyone! It's me  Guest Farmer Jo, am I allowed to call myself that? LOL it sounds so country and official. As January Guest Designer, I created some simple and one dimensional cards, that are very mailer friendly, using the Flutter Heart Clear Stamp Set.

Each image in this set is so versatile and can really stand on their own without all the bells & whistles of embellishments. One of my favorite sentiments in this set is "BOY meets GIRL...", adorable! I think it makes a statement used by itself and I just added some mini heart stickers at the tail end. Stamped inside of the card is the cute couple in the set. It may be difficult to see but I did add a tiny heart sticker on the girl's dress.

This second card, I used the "Love" banner and the lined hearts. I couldn't resist adding glitter, so I punched a scallop border across the bottom and laid red glitter paper underneath to peek out.

Did I mention that the couple image is cute? Well I had to use it again in this 3x3 card. I fussy cut the "Joy" scallop banner, popped it up (not too much so you can still mail it) and used it as a platform for the couple stamped on vellum. I added some more of that glitter paper for sparkle.

So I couldn't resist using the Miss Anya Garland stamp, so I gave her some puffy hearts as wings and added her just below the lined heart background alongside the "Flutter" sentiment.

I had a blast making these cards using the current new releases. Thank you so much for welcoming me with open arms this month. Bye for now. 

Have a great day!

We want to thank JO for the awesome projects she has contributed to the Farm for this past month and we have LOVED them all!  Thank you so much, Jo!

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
