I was SO excited to be December's challenge winner at Paper Sweeties, and it seems that I'm the last stop on their February Release Blog Hop. If you did arrive at my blog from Paper Sweeties, I'm sure glad you're here! But if you just happened to stop by, I'm even more excited that you've found me! I picked out some new goodies from their shop with the gift certificate I won, and paired those new items with one of my older stamp sets, and this is the card that I created.
The patterned papers and button are all from October Afternoon. The chipboard and paper clip are both from Recollections by Michael's, the (love) letter stickers are Basic Grey, and the rest is from Paper Sweeties. The October Afternoon button at the bottom of my card has a piece of Robin's Egg Baker's Twine in its center which is tied into a sweet little bow.
I used the sweet You Make Me Smile Stamp Set to create the center of my heart. I stamped the XOXO stamp from this set onto muslin with red ink, and then surrounded the heart using two Pink & White Chenille Candy Canes creating a heart, and then surrounded that with a row of seafoam rick-rack. I just LOVE the texture of stamping on muslin/fabric.
