Stampin Friends Lots of Love Blog Hop


Hey there, hi there, ho there! It is the third Thursday of the month!! 

Can you believe that we are already almost through our first month of the year? I sure can't!
Welcome to our January Stampin Friends Blog Hop! If you aren't familiar with Stampin Friends it is an amazing group of paper crafting friends who are oober talented and I feel so luck to be on this hop with just a handful of them!
If you came by way of Siara Acdal I just loved her creations!! 
She is one of our guest hoppers! Along with two lovely ladies below! Make sure you check them out!

I really struggle with Valentines Day... First of all I don't like Hearts.... Don't ask!! But somehow I have Heart stuff LOL! Second... I have been married 10 years folks its a monotonous holiday!
Now let me get the details on my creations below!!




The whole package of the card and my project came together so easy for a girl who really doesn't like Valentines! The super cute Love Blossoms DSP Stack was the choice for my colors... I made my little banners on the left with that stack using the Banner Triple Punch. The base of the card is Garden Green with a great contrasting layer of Blushing Bride (Yes! AGAIN!!). Whisper White is the base of the DSP stack so stuck with it to use for my stamped image. The Bloomin' Love stamp set is a very versatile set! I stamped the heart from this set using Blushing Bride ink. To add a little dimension to this I used the "My Valentine" sentiment with Versamark and Gold Stampin' Emboss powder. The great assortment of sequins is from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit! I just love everything in this kit! I adhered these using our Fine Tip Glue Pen. For the final touch I took a gold tone heart paper clip and strung the Blushing Bride Sequins on it and clipped it up on the top left!

My coordinating Fry Box was one of those "See I told you it would work" moments on FaceTime with Justin Krieger! Now this isn't just any burlap... It is from a stack I bought at Michael's that is paper backed! I had a square of it in front of me and decided to try it out! IT WORKED! I used sticky strip to adhere the sides as well as the lovely Blushing Bride flower trim from the Artisan Embellishment kit from last year! I filled a 4 x 6 Cellophane bag with some chocolates and nestled inside my Fry Box while I created the tag. The tag was made using our Scallop Tag Top punch. I then adhered a gold foil heart again from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. To keep it somewhat simple I stamped the "Love You More Than Chocolate" sentiment on the smallest Deco Label and adhered this to the heart using Stampin' Dimensionals. It was still to plain for me.... Sequins fix everything! So I used the same mix that I used on the card, tied some gold cord around the cellophane bag with the tag attached and VOILA!

I hope love my goodies!! Don't forget to comment #SFJanHop on each blog for a chance to win our BIG giveaway! See the details below! Next is Sarah! I can't wait for you to see what she has created! It is sure to be super fab!
