Jan. 2017 Blog Hop

Here is the inspiration photo for this month's blog hop at PTI. I love the black mixed with the reds and pinks!

Blog Hop Inspiration

I noticed the shape of the cookie, which is the same as Fillable Frames #4 die, so went with that tag shape. I also liked the flowers adorning two corners, so incorporated that into my design, using the Garden Garland die. The striped cookie also had an influence, as I chose to put some striped texture in the background. I added some "water drops" with Glossy Accents, and put a little Wink of Stella on the flowers for that little "somethin-somethin". So, without further ado, here is my take on this challenge.

All products used are PTI, expect the Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Make it Monday #272: Masked Hearts

I loved Melissa's idea of masking hearts to create a card for Papertrey's challenge this week, found here, so had to try it. I decided to make a card for my husband, so I wanted to avoid a "pretty, flowery" card, but still wanted some flowers and Valentine colours, so this is a more masculine card that I came up with. There is Wink of Stella on the white "Love" die cut.

Thanks for looking :)
