February Stamp of the Month Time!! "Friendship"

Hello Friends...

Welcome to the February, Close to my Heart, Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you have come here from Cindy's Blog, you are on the right track. Just page down, check out my creations and then at the end of my post you will find out which blog to head to next.

I've missed you these last two months while I took a much needed break from the blog-o-sphere, but I'm back and excited as ever to share my take on this month's stamp set.

Featured this month is a set of 8 stamps celebrating friendship. I created two cards that I tried to "step out of the box" on and hope you enjoy them.



For this card, I used a B & T paper from the "Wings" Level 2 kit and the largest stamp from the "Friendship" set to stamp on some off white cotton fabric in "Vinyard Berry." Over that I stamped a sentiment in black and then I frayed the edges. I used twill ribbon with Vinyard Berry waxy flax to do the bows on the twill.



For my next card, I used another stamp from the "Friendship" set and masked off the top of the design to make a sort of "planter" for my hearts to sit in. I used B & T paper from the "Sweetheart" level 2 paper pack and "Cotton Candy" card stock along with "Cotton Candy" and "Pear" inks to stamp the pots and the hearts which are popped up with pop dots. White organdy ribbon finishes off this 6 X 6 card nicely.

Well, that's it for me this month, but make sure you head over to Haley's blog to check out her cute project this month.

If you enjoy all the fun projects and new paper's during this hop, make sure you head on over to my website and shop to your hearts content, 24/7. The Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog goes live Feb. 1st!!!

See you next month when some cute little bunnies will appear on the hop!

Thanks for stopping by....

These are great! I love how you stamped on the fabric for the first card, and turning the stamp into a "planter" is so clever.

Love the planter! And the first card is great too!

I like how you stamped on the fabric, but I especially like your second card.

Cindy said...

What cleaver ideas...I like how you stamped on the fabric and then over stamped the sentiment.

Very clever ideas! Love the texture of the first card and how you used the stamp on the second.
