February Blog Hop


This month is all about Hearts and the Design Team has decided to dedicate this month's Blog Hop to hearts as well. I decided to give my projects just a hint of hearts. 
The first card uses the stamp set Sheltering Tree and with the sentiment you warm my heart it makes a perfect Valentine's Day or just a your special to me card. I added the In Color Heart Sequins to the tree just for a bit of color and to tie in the heart theme. The colors are Strawberry Slush, Early Espresso and Old Olive to stamping and just a bit of Coastal Cabana Card Stock. 
 My second project uses the Bokeh technique and I used Real Red and Coastal Cabana. The Stamp Set is Hello Life. I used the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities to color the Basic Rhinestones which I added to the card for just a bit of bling. Don't tell my husband but this is his Valentine's Day card. He doesn't check my blog so no worries with him seeing it.
