All about Love with Stampin Friends

Hello Friends,wWelcome to the first 2019 Stampin Friends Blog hop. It's great to be back hopping with the group...especially with all the beautiful new stamps and products available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, not to mention the Sale-A-Bration, January is a fabulously crafty time of year! 

Our theme is month is "All About Love", I immediately thought of hearts, and I was lucky enough to receive my order containing the Meant to Be Bundle just in time to be able to create for this theme - here's my Love inspired creations:

I did have a couple of change of plans with the projects, mainly being due to be spoilt for choice with gorgeous heart stamps and oh my.... the coordinating Be Mine heart framelits, so many to choose from.

I finally decided on the floral edged heart stamp, as it had a coordinating edge stamp, which was perfect for the gift box in my project. A Diamond Box seemed perfect for this months theme, after all, diamonds are associated with Love.

After Silver embossing the stamping, I used an Blender Pen to apply Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz to the design, then added a layer of shimmer paint to the heart.

Here's a close up of the matching card to complete the set. Repeat stamping is a great way to add interest to a card, I stamped the sentiment with Melon Mambo, then added a plain Whisper White Layer - I am loving the straight scalloped edge die, and what a bonus that is also has the stitched detail... Love! I also added a little metallic thread above the stitching for a little extra bling, then added a matching heart to complete.
