Welcome to the second Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! I am so excited to be participating in this Blog Hop. Unfortunately I did not have the stamp set that was used for the first round, Festive Flurry, but you can check out all of the great samples by clicking on the links on the blog. We will be sharing our creations of a chosen stamp set on the first and third Monday of every month.
This round we are using a stamp set from the annual catalog, Perfect Blend. If you are following the hop in order, you have come from Jill Coleman's blog. I just love her clever ideas. For my card this month, I decided to make a Valentine card for my dear hubby. I don't really have any sets that are specific to Valentine's Day, and I like to use what I have instead of buying holiday-specific sets, so I thought this would be a great set to use for the occasion.
I was first inspired by the envelope liner from the Merry Little Christmas Card Simply Created kit. I used that great Real Red DSP and cut it to size, then embossed it with the Chevron Embossing Folder. The embossing matches the DSP I chose for my hot chocolate cups (we don't drink coffee or tea lol) perfectly! My sentiment is stamped on Blushing Bride cardstock in Chocolate Chip and then I used my Real Red marker to add some color to it. I then cut it out with the Hearts Collection Framelit and adhered it with Dimensionals. I wanted to add some more hearts, so I punched out the tiny hearts from the Owl Builder Punch and then added some Crystal Effects to them to add some shine.
