Never Regret Anything that Made You Smile

Words to live by on one of the anniversary cards I made for the 20 card order I've mentioned a time or two recently.  This one is all die cuts and designer paper with the focus on the sentiment.




The stamp is from Rubbernecker, called "Never Regret".  I like it for an anniversary, but it could also be used for wedding or birthday.   Have you looked at Rubbernecker Stamps?  Best place for sentiments, I think, but lots of other great stuff, too.  Just sayin', not sellin'.  You can never have too many sentiment stamps.

Pretty Mintay "Lovely Day" designer paper and Tutti Designs Butterfly Oval are the primary supporting elements.  I cut the Butterfly Oval in half and used it as a sweeping edge on the large circle.  The other half was used on a card I'll share later.  The die is layered for dimension and then just the butterfly area cut again from the Mintay paper, trimmed and glued on top.  Rhinestones added.




That's all for today, friends!   More coming soon.  Bad weather makes for good times stamping!  Wishing you a very happy Valentine's Day!


Stamps:  Rubbernecker Never Regret  Paper:  Neenah Classic white, Mintay Lovely Day designer paper  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black  Accessories:  Rhinestones  Dies:  Tutti Designs Butterfly Oval, Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers, Spellbinders Grand Squares and Classic Square Large (nested to make frame)

Leslie, the way you use the Mintay papers is always breathtakingly pretty. Even your little butterfly is floral! Beautifully done, with those tiny rhinestones, and lovely sentiment. I especially like the square frame behind your circle - great design idea which I'll be casing for sure - but ----- it DOES remind me of me sometimes -- trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. LOL It's lovely and endearing, my NorthWest friend! hugs, de

BEAUTIFUL! I just used this same paper on a 70th birthday card lol. Love how you've used only half of the butterfly oval die cut ... great thinking. Gorgeous card ... she's going to love it!

One word says it all -- 'STUNNING'!! Leslie, this is just so amazing, your beautiful Mintay papers, the sentiment is so beautiful, and how you added the Tutti butterfly die cut. I have this die and never thought to cut it in half and use it this way - thank you for the idea. Thank you for inspiring me once again. Okay, off to scroll back up to look at this again - (big sigh)!! Looking forward to seeing more when time permits. Happy Valentine's Day to you as well. Take care,

Leslie, that's one great sentiment stamp and love the frame with the mix of DP and die cuts :)

Conniecrafter said...

Beautiful, I do love that sentiment and I love how you cut the butterfly out of that paper, such a soft and subtle touch but just the right amount of attention brought to it, great way to frame the sentiment!!

ChristineCreations said...

Many is that pretty paper Leslie! It is romantic and the scale is really nice too, perfect for the butterfly!

Loll said...

This is so beautiful it made me tear up

Nanny's Pansy Patch said...

This card is so pretty - and you are right, I love the sentiment. It is just perfect for your card! The paper is so pretty. It all goes so well together with the dies as well. I hope you are having a good weekend.

Ros Crawford said...

Wonderful words wrapped up so beautifully in this stunning card Leslie!

Stacy Morgan said...

Very pretty indeed. This makes for a quick card with the die cuts and no coloring. The tiny jewels are a great touch on the die cut and I like the layered frame look with the larger circle over it. Great card for the order you had. ;-)

Darnell said...

This is so you, Leslie! Full of garden life, butterflies, and words to live by! You're brilliant to cut that oval in half as a spray! Now I've ordered it, too, just like I order that pretty paper from Our Daily Bread! I wonder how many women order something every time you post, lol! You didn't know you had such power, did you?! Hugs, Darnell
