Happy New Year! I hope that this upcoming 2016 year brings everything good. One good thing here? My girls go back to school on Monday. I am ready :)
The first of the month means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month we are revisiting the Stitched Sentiments set. I love how wonderful this set can be for so many different occasions and I used it to create some cards that are perfect for sending some love on Valentine's Day or just because to someone special.
I pulled out the "love" Quick Stitch Sentiment die and tucked the sentiment that I stitched up with some embroidery floss into the little embroidery hoop frame from the Stitched Sentiments set.
I stamped the companion sentiment from the Stitched Sentiments set onto the banner die and trimmed off the left side so I could have it coming out of the frame. A little Sweet Blush felt heart tacks down the left side of the banner just perfectly.
This is just a simply sweet card to share with a special loved one in your life!
For this next card, I had to use the embroidery hoop to make a shaker element for my card. I filled it with some clear sprinkles and hearts that I had die cut with the Cover Plate: Hearts die. I added a sentiment from the new Keep it Simple: Love set onto a kraft banner die cut.
The coordinating papers on the top and bottom of the card are stamped with some of the cross stitch elements in the Stitched Sentiments set. I went for a tone on tone look stamping Sweet Blush ink onto Sweet Blush cardstock.
The Papertrey Ink January release will be here before you know it - thank you so much for stopping by today!
