Welcome to my blog and the Joy of Sets monthly blog hop. No surprises with our theme this month – Love is in the Air. If you are new to my blog, I hope you enjoy my projects and become a regular.
With only a few days left to Valentine’s Day, we hope to inspire you with our projects. So please make sure you stop by all the blogs for loads of ideas to help you create something special for that special someone.
My projects started off with my idea of using the Detailed Hearts Die with watercolouring. Then I chose my colours of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride. Using an aqua painter, I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.
The card base was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then I layered a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock die cut with the Stitched Rectangles die. I die cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock in the same size. Then using the Detailed Hearts die, I embossed the white panel.
I stamped and punched the heart from the watercoloured cardstock and cut a Heart doily in half to create a smaller matte around this image.
I had some watercoloured cardstock left so I made a gift tag for this cute bag which is in the Birthday Bonanza suite. One of the Stitched Rectangle dies was used to create the banner shape.
I added some of the die cut hearts from my card to embellish the tag and this gift bag filled with chocolate hearts was all set for giving.
I hope you have enjoyed these projects. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Next along our hop is Fiona Whitehead. Please click the ‘next’ button to be directed to her blog.
