Welcome to the â€œLove Me Doâ€ Valentineâ€™s Blog Hop! This week, January 16th-20th, we have a group of 5 talented designers sharing projects with you on their blogs to get you prepared for the upcoming season of love! Whether you use these designs to create something for your loved ones or spring-board off the inspirations given, we would love to see your work as well, so leave a comment on the blogs as you go through.
On January 24th, we will be giving away a collection of goodies from the group to one lucky participant. The giveaway will be hosted through filling out a Google Docs form, here on Live.Teach.Create on January 20th, asking various questions about the posts throughout the week. All those who enter with the correct answers will have a chance to win!
Today I have another 4 1/4″ square card for you today with another black base. I guess I am on a roll with black bases as they just pop to me!
I used an older My Mind’s Eye collection and cut a piece of the yellow paper at 1 3/4″ x 4 1/4″. I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. I used the reverse side of another sheet from the same collection and the same EK Success Diamond Lace Edge Punch for an edge on the left side. I covered the seam by tying around the two pieces with black grosgrain ribbon.
The hearts are from a retired Close To My Heart stamp and stamped in Fired Brick Distress Ink on red cardstock. I then went over the holes in the heart with Sakura Glaze Pen.
The oval was cut with the Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and then stamped on with the Close To My Heart Say It in Style My Acrylix stamp set using two different sets.
Tomorrow I have one more card to share with you. I hope that you are enjoying the hop and if you are just joining us, take a moment to go back and look at previous projects. Tomorrow afternoon in a second post, I will be posting the Google Doc for you to answer for a chance to win our giveaway.
Thanks for joining me today for Day #4 of the â€œLove Me Doâ€ Valentineâ€™s Blog Hop! Next person in the hop is Jessica of Handmade Cre8ivity. Check back again with me tomorrow as well for another new idea.
