Always...Engagement, Swap & Challenge...

The stamp set I fell most in love with when I first saw the new Spring Mini Caty was Always. In particular I couldn't wait to get my hands on that love heart and the bird! Luckily for me my cousin had his engagement party a couple of weekends ago, that was the perfect excuse to break it out! This is the card I made:


StampsStamps: Always, All Year Cheer (retired)
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, Versamark
Paper: Basic Grey, Pretty n Pink. Purely Pomegranate
Other: Silver embossing powder, satin ribbon (purely pomegranate), stampin dimensionals

Then, I loved the card so much I thought this is what I'll do for Mel's Mini Caty swap, I had to change it a little, this is what the swap card looked like in the end:

Stamps: Always,
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, Versamark
Paper: Basic Grey, Pretty n Pink. Purely Pomegranate
Other: Silver embossing powder, satin ribbon (purely pomegranate), stampin dimensionals, silver brad

Then after making up all my swaps I had 3 embossed hearts left over. SO I thought - Yay, I'll make a card for Nerine's basics challenge, and I did (but I just forgot to send it to Nerine before the deadline!) You can see all the other entries here and details on the challenge here. Here's my (non) entry:

Stamps: Always, Short & Sweet (little heart)
Ink: Basic Grey, Versamark
Paper: Basic Grey, Pretty n Pink. Purely Pomegranate
Other: Silver embossing powder, stampin dimensionals
