Seashore Stampers Janurary Blog Hop
Hello amazing followers, talented stampers, and my beloved random lurkers,
Welcome to the Seashore Stampers monthly blog hop. With Valentine's Day looming, this month we are featuring an appropriate card or 3D item.
Valentine's Day is easy for those in happy relationships. You can surprise your honey with a hand made card, a box of chocolates, a dinner, a night out, etc. For those who are alone, it can be an especially challenging day. When you're your making cards, I encourage you to think of someone who might otherwise be forgotten this Valentine's Day. One of my neighbours, who has been on her own for a few years, will be receiving a card and an invitation to go for coffee from me. Let's spread the love!
I chose to make a simple card...actually cards. My inspiration came from 3 left over kits from my recent Open House. Often, after classes or other such events, I'm left with these kits. They invariably wind up stuffed away and forgotten. This year I was determined to make good use of them. So, one night while binge watching old "Bones" episodes, I made these cards.
My kits consisted of the following: 4 1/4" X 11 & 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" pieces of the berry best, Berry Burst (#144243); 5" x 3 3/4 " & 4" x3" pieces of Whisper White (#100730); and 2 x 2" pieces of Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon (#145489.) This ribbon has quickly become one of my all time favourites. With its gorgeous metallic silver edges, it kicks the cards up a notch without the need of any further embellishments.
In order to create my featured card, along with one of my left over kits, I used the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set (#140643) and the Berry Burst Ink (#144083) from the Annual Catalogue. The background was stamped as well. Pretty simple. If you need more information, please contact me.
Remember, during SALE-A-BRATION (SAB), you get to choose a FREE SAB item for every $60 you spend. For all orders under $200, please use the hostess code AV3TJCCG. You will be entered into my draw to win a fabulous prize.* My store is here. When you join my team, during SAB, which runs until March31, for only $135, you choose $165 worth of product and TWO FREE STAMP SETS of your choice. In addition, you will receive a special gift from me.
Here are other the cards I did that night. The "Best Wishes" was the original one from my Open House. If you want the product information, or have any questions, drop me a line.

Cheers and Happy Valentine's Day,
Lots of Love,
