Good Morning! Welcome to the Made With Heart Blog Hop. I was really excited to have one of my former DT members from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge contact me to ask me to participate. I can't wait to see for myself all the great ideas along the hop.
I have a few projects made using those cute Pure Innocence Stamps from My Favorite Things.
This card was created using the PI Cheerleader stamp. I decided to try and give it a big more versatility. To me it looks like she is running up to give you a hug. I decided to "change" the cheerleader skirt by inking up the edge of the skirt only using a black memento pen. I stamped it, colored with Copics and Primsacolor Pencils, cut it out and adhered it over the original cheerleader skirt. I also wanted to try and add bangs to the little girl. You can see a card with the original image that I made yesterday HERE.
I used all kinds of different companies to make this card. Love that. My papers include PTI''s Kraft. It is simply THE best kraft paper ever. I also colored on Xpress Blending paper. If you are new to Copics then try this. It will make coloring a bit easier. I also used the Love Collection from American Crafts. My glittery heart is a clearance find, but you can get that fun, red Baker's Twine from Claudia and Co. I also used a Hero Arts set called, Happiness Messages and embossed with white EP.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it says, " From Your Biggest, Biggest, Biggest Fan!"
I have one more project to share.
Here's a cute box I made using a template by Creations by AR. It's the fireplace card. I will have a small tutorial on that this weekend.
This box uses many of the same supplies except I used the cute "Make Mine a Double" PI girl. Her ice cream cone is topped with Liquid Applique for a bit of dimension. I also painted a chipboard heart with some Red Gloss paint ( another clearance find...lol) Oh and don't you love that twill ribbon? I never would have thought to use these colors together if not for the fabulous world of crafting.
So hop along and see what inspiration you can find along the way. I'm sure there will be quite a bit.
I also have a small bit of blog candy to offer up. Just leave me a comment telling me what you love most about paper crafting. For me it is the quiet moments of creating and then making someone feel happy when I give them something I made with my heart.
Stop back this weekend for a small tutorial and another fun filled hop on Monday.
Here is the blog hop list for today. ENJOY! and thanks for stopping by!!!
