Key to my heart

Here's a wonderful card using a stamp from Stamping Bella's Oddballs line. I just LOVE this stamp set. I think I have gotten almost all the stamps in this darling set. They are just TOO cute. I can't resist them.  I have added some great Turkish embroidered ribbon to it as well. Well, today is my first day at my new school location.  I am sure many regular followers have heard me talking about looking diligently for a new school to work at.  I got notice two weeks ago and I start at my new school today.  Wish me luck!

beautiful card Holley Goodluck on your new school.

I use a lot of alphabeth for making names.
sentiments I do not use often because my buyers from the cards want to have clear cards so they can put there own text in.

What a fun card! I love the rich red and gorgeous lace. I use a lot of sentiment stamps, usually on the card front but I so stamp them on the inside. For special cards I will embellish the inside of the card too.

Beautiful card! The colors and details are amazing. I use sentiments, stamp on the inside of my cards, and occasionally use alphabet stamps. Congratulations on your new job and school! Hope you have a wonderful day and start to a new adventure!

Great card! Congrats on the new job! xoxo

Congrats on the new job! Your card is darling. I don't use alpha stamps very often. I have many and use sentiments on almost every card. I usually don't stamp the inside but I have been thinking of stamping the inside on the cards I make this year. I have a few stamps appropriate for the inside and I can always create a Word document and print them off and adhere them inside.

Karthikha said...

Congratulations on your new job! Wishing you all the very best :) This card is so sweet, and I love your color combination, along with that lace! I use alphabet stamps rarely though I bought them thinking I'll use. However I do use sentiment stamps on the front of my cards. For the inside, I usually write my own message or google a good one and write it down. I get appreciated for my handwriting too, so I love the handmade touch :)

Congratulations, Holley! Prayers for you!
Your card is so cute! Yes, I use sentiments, but I rarely use alphabet stamps. And I don't put anything inside the card until I get ready to use it. 😁

Sometimes I use feelings stamps in general. But inside the cards I prefer to leave it blank so that people or myself can write.

I love this image. She is so sweet. I don't use alphabets often but I do like to stamp sentiments inside and outside of my cards.

Oddballs are so cool. I have a few of these too. Congrats on yur new job. Hope you have a fabulous first day. I do use sentiments. Don't stamp inside usually and I have a few alphabet stamps already. Hugz

Denise Bryant said...

I don't have any of the Oddballs yet, but I have a few that I am head-over-heels about.... the snowman, Easter bunny and many of the Halloween ones! Such fun designs! Love your card and the image and sentiment! Beautiful lace too!
I don't tend to use alphas, but I love sentiment stamps. Wish I had more that were appropriate for the inside of my cards. I have many that I use on the card fronts, like Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, etc... the basics. But I do often with I had more choices for the inside.

Jackie T said...

Hi Holley this is a stunning card. I don't do much stamping now. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Candy Meyers said...

;This is such cute image. Love the lace for the valentine theme.

Shelley said...

Mostly use sentiment stamps (and alphabet/letter dies) - can never have too many sentiments to choose from lol; and I always finish my cards inside. I love your card!

Amy Martin said...

That is awesome news!! Congratulations! I used alphabets here and there, sentiments yes. I also stamp the inside of my cards, mainly with sentiments as some do go all out stamping away inside.

papersmiles said...

Congrats and best of luck on your new job. This image is too cool. I don't use alphabet stamps much but I always stamp sentiments on the inside and often on the outside of cards. Funny, poignant or encouragement are my favorites. Hugs, Barbara

This card is beautiful! It makes my bohemian heart sing!

I used to use alphabet stamps all the time! Not so much anymore.

Karenladd said...

This is another adorable card and that turkish ribbon is impressive! I don't use alphabet stamps much at all, although I have quite a few sets. When I first began stamping in earnest, I bought about 5 different alphabet sets to use on scrapbook layouts but these days I stick to sentiments. I prefer humorous or unique sentiments, but I don't stamp inside my cards. I usually handwrite my greetings inside the card.

Rachel Duong said...

I love the Stamping Bella Oddball stamps! This one is so cute and I love the skull in her hair! The lace and buttons are awesome. I have alphabets and I do like to stamp on the inside of the card when I am getting ready to send it. I love sentiments that are inspiring, funny and sweet. Sometimes I buy stamps for the sentiment!

Sandra said...

Congrats!! Wow, great news, a new job!!
Love this card, and that lace is gorgeous!
I use sentiments on my cards, but just the regular ones like happy birthday things.
I never stamped a quote or a sentiment on the inside, just on the outside.
And sometimes I use my alphabet/scrabble tile stamps

Karenladd said...

I forgot to wish you good luck on your new job! I hope things work out well for you and that you settle in to your new school quickly.

Jean said...

Congrats on the new job! Hope it went well. This is not my style but you make the cards so cute! Love the lace. I love sentiment stamps but just use them on the outside.

SHartl said...

Wow, hope your new school is a good one for you Holley. I don't use alphabet stamps, but I do use a lot of sentiments. I don't usually decorate the outside of my cards though because I barely have time to decorate the fronts, lol!

Linda S Vigil said...

I seldom use alpha stamps, but used them several times in past 2 months! I love sentiment stamps, another great feature of Unity stamps. I do stamp inside of most cards, both sentiments and images, also sometimes on envelopes. Today's card is a cutie! :)

Suzanne H said...

Congrats on your new job! I don’t use alphabet stamps often but I do use sentiments on the outside and inside my cards.

Sindhu said...

Kathy said...

Super cute card Holley!

Vivian Foo said...

Mostly sentiments stamps on the front.

DJ said...

I love using a sentiment stamp inside my cards if I can find one that fits the occasion. I also use have been using my alphabet stamps more lately, my Grandchildren names, for example. It’s always scary to stamp inside a card after working so hard on the outside so I will often stamp on a separate sheet and attach it to the card.

I use stamps but I want to start stamping.

StampNK said...
