February Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Wow - we have a nice long list of blogs to visit during this blog hop!!  Welcome to my blog.   You may have arrived here from Dawn's blog.   Make sure to leave comments at all of the blogs you visit as we bloggers need to feel the love!! This months theme is Sale-a-bration or Valentines Day. Here are my projects.

This is my first project:

This Valentines wreath started with a flat decorative heart that I found at Dollarama. It actually had two smaller hearts hanging inside. I removed the two smaller hearts and I'm sure I will find some other use for them. The rosettes (or medallions) were made by scoring the brights and subtles pattern pack DSP on the Simply Scored. Some of the rosettes have a lovely border created by using the Pinking Hearts Border punch. The stamps used were from P.S. I Love You found in the Occasions Mini printed using My Digital Studio. I love this program for the ability to access such a variety of stamp sets and how easy it is to select the colour and size of the images you want to use. Check below for a list of product used here.

My second project:

This card meets the February colour challenge of perfect plum, blushing bride and sahara sand. It also fills the Sale-a-bration and Valentines categories. The colour combination is definitely out of my comfort zone so this challenge was just what I needed. The card base is perfect plum layered with sahara sand DSP from the patterns pack.  It is hard to see but the perfect plum card base has been scored on all four sides.   The image is from Outlined Occasions (SAB) stamped on whisper white and cut using the labels collection framelit.   This stamp set is perfect for paper piercing and you might be able to see where I pierced the central image.  The pleated blushing bride ribbon makes a beautiful frame for the framelit! The hearts are cut from blushing bride and perfect plum card stock using the new Fashionable Hearts embosslits die.

A little Valentine's Day project:

This little sour cream container uses the PS I Love you set (Occasions Mini) and the Outlined Occasions set (SAB). Just a little something full of kisses for Valentines Day!
