Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Adore You




Welcome to our blog hop featuring the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month, Adore You! You may have just come from Donna Digby's blog. If you get lost along the way you can find the entire list at Melissa Everitt's blog.

This is the perfect time for a stamp set I can use to get my Valentines ready for February.


I used our new paper pack, Sugar Rush, to make this card. It was simple to use 3 of the zip strips from the edge of the papers and to cut the new "XOXO" on a diagonal using one of the pomegranate papers with plus signs. On a diagonal they look like X's! The white background was embossed with the Happy Thoughts embossing folder.



Both hearts were stamped with Pomegranate ink on white and the large one was stamped again on the subtle pink pattern of a Sugar Rush paper. The sentiment is gold embossed on the pink heart. The heart's flowers on white were lightly painted with a water brush that picked up ink I squeezed into the lids of Pomegranate and Tangerine ink pads. The foliage was colored with a ShinHan Touch Twin Leaf Green alcohol ink marker. Finally, the heart was edged with three glittery pink Sugar Rush dots that are new today.

Thank you for visiting!  Now you're ready to see the lovely art  Krista Hershberger has for you!
