Brutus Monroe, True Love Luggage...

Hey folks, it's Norine and I'm back on the blog again today and switching it up from all the flower cards a couple of days back.  Today I'm sharing a couple of cute and simple cards!

I stamped the image from the True Love Luggage stamp set by Brutus Monroe twice, once onto Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock for coloring with the Zig Clean Color markers (the Bon Voyage card), and again onto Neenah Solar White cardstock for coloring with Copics (the "Follow You Anywhere card).

I stamped the sentiments using individual alphabet stamps like these ones from Lawn Fawn, called Milo's ABCs.  The Bon Voyage sentiment is stamped with all the alphabets bumped together on the MISTI, but for the "follow" sentiment, I didn't have as much room to fit it all in so I drew a line with a straight edge and a pencil, and stamped each letter individually.

The Bon Voyage card is a top-folding A2 size card and when I messed up the stamped sentiment on the bottom I had to get creative and cover the boo boo with some black and blue cardstock strips.  But shhh...if you don't tell, I won't either.  The blue enamel hearts on this card are from Illustrated Faith.

For the Copic colored card below, I die cut the image and sentiment using the MFT DieNamics Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies.  Then I matted it with some striped paper from my cut-offs stash and mounted both on foam tape.  I also added some enamel hearts from Doodlebug Designs to this card.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day is going wonderfully!


  1. Sweet cards. Fabulous stamping of the follow sentiment.

  2. What adorable cards! I'd never seen stamps (that I can recall) from Brutus Monroe - just jumped over to the shop and ordered my 1st set - Be Unique set - I'm so excited! Thanks for the inspiration!
