January 15, 2013 Blog Hop - Consultants Choice

Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2013. Our January Hop is featuring a “Consultants Choice”, so each consultant has a unique project to share with you. I hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers…..whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do….by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you…now on to our hop!!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle S ~ My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Carrie of scrappinwithcarrie then you are in the right place!

For my blog I created a Valentines Card For My Husband

 For this card I used brown cardstock cut down to 8 1/2 " by 11"
I then cut 2 pieces of white card stock 5" x 8" one piece for the front of the card the other piece for the insert.
On the front I used paper from the Reflections Paper Pack Kit X7134B layering 4 different hearts to create a raised effect.
I like to cut my hearts freehand as I like the freedom of imperfections.
I used three different stamp sets to create this card on the front Happy Valentines Day is January 2013 Stamp of the Month.
The cloud burst in the upper left corner is from D1782 the Love Life Stamp Set as well as the Live, Laugh, Love.

 For the Card insert the twin hearts and the stamp Two hearts beat as One I used D1445 Amore, I also used this stamp set for the top heart on the front cover.
The With all my Heart stamp is also from the January 2013 SOTM set.
The remaining stamps were from D1482 the Love Life Stamp Set.

I used Vineyard Berry and Outdoor Denim to create a more masculine affect.

I hope you all enjoy this project.
