Valentine's Card Blog Hop

Hey there!!  Thanks for stopping by!  You should have come from Jordan's blog.  If you just started here you might want to start at Amanda's blog and follow along!
I was actually EARLY with my project!  I've had these cards done for weeks!!  I really enjoyed this challenge.  Amanda from Love Joy Paper sent us all a few pieces (most the same for everyone) and we had to make a card out of at least half the items in the envelope.  I have to say, I really love how mine turned out and I've been patiently waiting to share it with all of you!
Included in my envelope was a few small pieces of patterned paper, a handful of chipboard shapes, bling and the red and white twine.
I had been sewing for a few days and while my machine was out I used it on a couple cards.  The bottom strip was first punched with an edge punch then folded in pleats and stitched over the top.



And since I was in a good mood or felt like I could win some brownie points...I created a second card with some of the leftover items.  Super easy and super cute card! I used my Stampin Up heart punch (3 in 1) to punch out some small hearts.  Adhered them to the page then just stitched over them to the bottom of the card!  Add some leftover string and a bling and DONE!


Thanks for stopping by!!  You're next stop on our hop is Shanon's blog.  She always has some fun stuff!

Both of these are adorable Becky!!! You did an awesome job of making use of the supplies Amanda sent! I love the little border across the bottom of your first card and that you left some of the chipboard pieces natural! And the second one is so fun...love that you made heart balloons!! :)
