Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come.
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Not So Ugly"
I wanted my card using this set to look like a Victorian Valentine. I took some of the sentiments from the set and made a text block on my acrylic block. On my card I embellished it with pearl stick pins, a tea stained paper doily, I used a MS decorative edge punch to go around my text block. I added floral filler, a cream colored ribbon, handmade-quilled roses made from paper bags, twine and a little key charm. I tied a bow in the twine after running it through the key. I then sprayed the twine with water and wrapped it around the handle of a paint brush. When it was dry it was curled. The paper bag roses have gold paint splattered on them. It was hard to get that to show up in this photo.
Here is a card with a totally different look. I was going for CAS which is so out of my comfort zone. This is the card I made for the Splitcoast Color Combo challenge. I used a different sentiment from this set.
