Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! The featured stamp set is Hearts A Flutter which is one of my favorite sets because it is so versatile. Yes, it is not just for Valentine's Day my friends. And this Blog Hop is going to show you lots of ways to use this stamp set!
NOTE: The Blog Hop is officially live and without glitches, Monday, January 6th so I apologize there are any snags before then. Hopefully you will come back!
So. If you arrived here from Beth Beard's Blog, you are in the correct place. If this is your first stop, then no worries. You can complete the Hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post. It will take you full circle.
I created a masculine birthday card for one of my projects.
I would send this to a family member because of the hearts - don't want anyone to get the wrong idea! But you could easily take away the hearts and add another button and it could be given to any guy. The banners, stamped in masculine colors, are what makes it work. I added a masculine background with Off the Grid and Dictionary background stamps to fill in some of the blank space.
Valentines aren't just red and pink. How about Black and gold?
I embossed all of the images with gold and sponged a little gold on the doily. Some embossed gold foil gives it some extra glam. I created this with Valentine's Day in mind but it could be an anniversary card or, switch the sentiment for a wedding or birthday card.
