CardMaker Magazine Blog and Lawn Fawn Blog Hop

Hi everyone! If we've been friends for a while, you know by now that Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite companies ever. I love their stamps, dies, patterned papers, inks...really they can do no wrong in my book. ;) When I spend money on crafting supplies, it's a pretty good bet that something new from Lawn Fawn is in my cart. So imagine my excitement when I found out that the CardMaker Blog team would be doing a blog hop with Lawn Fawn! And for Valentine's Day? I LOVE making Valentines.

I used the Heart Swatch stamp and die and some 2nd and 3rd generation stamping to make the heart backgrounds.
I also used the adorable Love Letters stamp set for those sweet birds and fun phones. Curious about the 2nd and 3rd generation stamping technique? I made a video where I showed that and how I put my card together. Check it out here:


I also put made a little gift card holder using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Envelope. 
I tied tulle around the envelope to keep it closed and then layered the little tag on top.
A tulle bow always looks special doesn't it? The best part is that a gift card fits perfectly inside!

The next stop on the hop is the talented Heather Hoffman! If you get lost along the way, just head back to the CardMaker Blog where all the hop participants will be listed!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
