Happy February to all of you! Welcome to the Fedruary edition of the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!!! We are back this month with a fun "Don't Go Breakin My Heart" theme. So there is a chance this hop won't just be Valentines. I know that I can't wait to see what my 22 Stampin' Up! Friends have come up with!
So when I started making this months creations, I didn't want to be predictable. When I sat down yesterday to make my creations, I can tell you that what I actually came up with wasn't what I was expecting. I mean we all know that the quickest way to a mans heart is his stomach! It is a good thing I am a good cook! Let's get to the good stuff!
I just received the Apron of Love Bundle on Monday! I couldn't wait to ink it up and play with it! Truthfully, I was going to use it with the Painted with Love DSP... It wasn't working for me. When I realized I still had some of the Birthday Memories DSP, the cute little girl with the cupcakes were such a cute "love" idea. I die cut the one on the card with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I layered this onto a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. This is when the Apron of Love Bundle came out to play. I stamped the sentiment using Crumb Cake ink and made a nice little banner using the Triple Banner Punch. I added the scalloped trim using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch with Marina Mist Card stock. I set both items aside and created my layout using a card base of Marina Mist along with a matte of Blushing Bride. I matted the 2" strip of Sweet Soiree DSP onto a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock with a simple trim of Silver Bakers Twine. Finally I die cut the baking utensils using Silver Foil. My cute little spatula needed a small piece of Whisper White so it looked real. I even inked it a bit with the light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend marker so it looked as though it had frosting on it. A nice Real Red heart was a perfect accent. I added all the elements to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I have given you a closer look at the card below.
So my coordinating box is a bit simple, but sometimes simple is good right? I put the same piece of Sweet Soiree DSP as I used on the card on the top using Liquid Multipurpose Glue and then fussy cut the girl from the DSP. I wasn't sure what to do at this point so I decided to use my Lots of Love Bundle and stamp a Blushing Bride heart onto Whisper White card stock. I put the girl on the heart and tied the same twine around the box with the cute little oven mitt tag from the Apron Of Love.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
