Mi Amore Blog Hop


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Mi Amore Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying your Valentine's Day so far! If you are joining us in the hop, please start HERE, if you came from Lauren's blog then you are in the right spot!

Since today is THE day of love, we were asked to create any type of love themed project. So I have 2 fun cards to share with you all today! :) Hope you like 'em!

For my 1st card I experimented with some digital images from the Sweet Shoppe, I printed the little bee tag out twice and did some paper peircing, stickles, inking and pop dots. I love the end result with the big chipboard stickers and the finishing touch of twine and a few buttons...


I love the non-traditional colors in this card too! 


For my next card I was going for more of a vintage Valentine look. I got the adorable image as a freebie from Peggy Loves Vintage, printed that out and did a LOT of inking up the edges for a worn look. I found the sentiment in my stash of rub-ons and the heart is from the Simply Sweet cartridge, I inked that up and covered it in MS coarse glitter.

To finish the vintage-y feel, I had to distress my twine with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink. I think it turned out great! 

There you have it! I hope you like my little creations!

To celebrate this lovely day I would like to give away some blog candy to one lucky winner.
Here's what you can win:


To enter my giveaway, please leave ONE comment to THIS post. You don't have to become a follower, but you are more than welcome to! :)

Have fun hoppin'!


P.S. Here's my little Valentine...
Little miss Sunshine!
