Make life simple :)

I was looking at my Technique Tuesday stamp set that I purchased a while ago (of course, until today, hadn't been used...).  I bought them 'cause I love this font, and I thought that I could totally use these... so I decided to challenge myself and make 3 cards out of them today.  However, it's one of those days... I really didnt' feel like turning the Cricut on, and I really didn't feel like unloading and loading the papers on the mat... do you have one of those days? I just wanted to be simple.

Anyway, the stamp set is made out of just single words, all separate, and can be matched together in different ways to make all sort of statements.

So, these are the three that I made: (and they were super easy! and I loved this simple look!)

These cards are made out from my favorite embellishments - ribbon, twine, buttons only.

So these words are all separate - and just stamped them together...  I thought the "sew" look would be cute... like sewn parts captured all the little ribbons... get it?

I used double sided tape to hold down the ribbons first, then placed a thin strip of cardstock on top and sewed it.

Here, I used the Quickutz embossing folder and I placed some twine-tied buttons on some squares.

Okay, the next one, I cheated... it's not from my stamp set, but kinda matches the font... (it's the "Digs My Heart" font - my fave <3)

I tied square pieces with double twine.  The sentiments is printed from my computer.

 Each of the gifts are adhered by foam tape so it gives dimension.

So, here's the stamp set that I used from Technique Tuesday "Everyday Words". 


Pretty, huh?  Now, I want your help! In order to be able to utilize more of this stamp set, can you help me put together a sentiment?  Especially with the word delight - I'm having trouble!

Thanks!
