Kindred Spirits

I love my helmar! That is no secret! There is a saying that once a Helmar Girl ALWAYS a Helmar Girl! And today I'm sharing a set of cards that I made using two staples of my Helmar stash - Helmar Craft Glue & Helmar Gemstone Glue.

These cards are so CAS they took me over an hour to design! *giggle* You wouldn't think so after looking at them and you probably wouldn't guess there are 3 prototypes now lining my G file but there are! I have been wanting to use these adorable PSA Stamps since we got them in our DT package and finally I knew what I wanted to do:

I told you they were CAS! What I love about Helmar Craft Glue is using it on border dies like this one from Spellbinders. Because of the holes right down in the middle and the scallop edges it's not really working for my Helmar Tape Runner so instead, I take my Helmar Craft glue and just go around the edges of the paper and press to stick to the card. Easy Peasy!! For a little pop of shimmer, I added the embossed flower border at the top & added soome bella dots to the center using Helmar Gemstone Glue. I love the simplicity of this design and will be adding this set of note cards to my etsy shop this week!  

Here are a couple of close ups:
