We Remember

Do you all remember an old song from the 60’s – I’m Gonna Make You Love Me?   I had to laugh because I have a die template that’s been sitting on my desk that I wanted to love but I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it.  Every time I’d make a card, it would get into my “let’s try this” pile only to be weeded out because I wasn’t sure where to use it.  Well this weekend that little die template just kept saying ‘I’m gonna make you love me’ and honestly, by the time I was done with it, all I could think was “yep, I do”.   As I put the bow on the card today, that song keeps going through my mind (smile)!!     I reached out for a new Quietfire Design set We Do Not Remember Days – it fit perfectly in the space I carved out for a sentiment!!

So for this card, I prepared my card base (saving the bow for last)  including the corner pieces from Spellbinders™ Asian Accents.  Then I built another layer using Spellbinders™ Floral Oval and finished off by using Spellbinders™ Jar Labels.  Before attaching the last layer, I used Spellbinders™ Diamond Strips and Accents to cut an inlaid pattern on the existing die template cut out and finished up by stamping the first of a two part sentiment.  Once all the edges were tucked under on the die template, I embellished with pearls.

I rarely decorate the inside of my cards because I leave room for writing a letter or note.  This time though, since the sentiment is set up so nicely to use in two different places, I stamped the remainder of the sentiment on the inside on a panel using Spellbinders™ Resplendent Rectangles.

Bless you all for the kindness you always show me, please know I feel it’s a gift I’m so blessed to receive.  I thank you for the moment you take to stop by and I only hope you are able to take some tidbit away that might make your day or your crafting time better.   I feel indebted to the wonderful readers here!!

  • ShelleeSeptember 5, 2012 - 6:23 pm

    Your many layers are always so stunning! I really enjoy the very fine mat borders that you so often have. Just enough to show the beautiful colors, but not enough to overshadow what is on top of them. So delicate and elegant!

    What a pretty and delicate card! The sentiment settles so well within the diamond borders……

    My first kit came in the mail and I’m so bummed. I’m heading out of the town for the weekend! All the items are removed from their packages and I’m loving the papers, trims, stamps and the new die! Can’t wait till the trip is over so I can PLAY!

    Thanks, Becca, for sharing your art and heart-felt thoughts. God Bless!ReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSSeptember 5, 2012 - 9:19 pm

    I am visiting my family in Ohio and one of the first things we did was go to Michael’s for my neice to buy a Grand Calibur. I brought all of my dies with me and my neice and sister were in awe. We have been cutting since Sunday night until the wee hours.
    This is just another masterpiece from your most talented hands.My neice just asked me how she can sign up to get your blogs. Guess she is impressed as much as her aunt is. LOL She is very artistic like you so it did not surprise me that she wanted to sign up for your blog. You just have that magical touch and talent that impresses everyone who sees your work..
    God Bless.

    I love your cards! I am returning to stamping after having been physically impaired for quite awhile. However, I have followed your tutorials, etc. with great interest and appreciation. This morning I found out you live in Pleasant Grove! Oh, my goodness, I live in American Fork…in fact, I live very near the road which is American Fork on one side and Pleasant Grove on the other. Thank you, thank you for all that you put on the site. It will make it even more interesting to know you live near. Aren’t the red leaves spilling down our mutual mountains spectacular. They come further down each day. We live in a glorious area. Sincerely MaryCarolynReplyCancel
