Creation Station Blog Hop - Celebrations of the Heart


Hello stamping friends! It's rainy and snowy here on this chilly Super Bowl day. Who are you rooting for? Football isn't big in our household (now the Olympics is a whole other story...I LOVE me some Olympics...summer, winter...doesn't matter!!) so I will wish both teams good luck today! 


With this month's Celebrations of the Heart theme, I thought it would be fun to create a slightly different size card. This is actually a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" size card so it will still fit in a regular size envelope. I decided to add a background of hearts inside a die cut scallop circle to anchor the focal point. The hearts are a stamp from the Weather Together set and inked in Melon Mambo ink. The cute panda is from a current Sale-A-Bration set, Panda Parade. Isn't it the cutest? I used my blender pen with Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo ink refills to give the envelope some soft color. I brushed Wink of Stella all over the panda's face and belly. The sparkle's in the corner are from the Magical Day stamp set, "Love" is from the Apron of Love set and the die cut "You" is from another Sale-A-Bration offering called Celebrate You thinlets. To go along with this fun little card I covered some mini candy bars with Pink Pirouette card stock that were stamped with hearts from the Apron of Love set in Melon Mambo ink. I added a bow of Basic Black Baker's Twine to both items as a finishing touch. Have fun hopping along to see what fabulousness Julie has in store for you! Happy Stamping!
