The Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free For All





I am delighted to be joining The Stamp Review Crew~!  We have blog hops the first and third Monday of each month and feature one Stampin' Up! set used in oh so many creative ways by our amazing team!  It's a great resource to help you make the most out of your stamp sets!

This week however is a free for all - in a good way!  We all made Valentines so you should find some ideas to use for your own sweet Valentines!  If you arrived here from Bronwyn Eastley's blog I know you have already seen some wonderful designs!






I used a recent photopolymer set called Snuggles and Smooches - perfect for a Valentine or new babies!  The sketch from Cas(e) This Sketch was a guide for my design of cascading hearts stamped in Real Red and Crisp Cantaloupe.






Now you are off to enjoy the creations of my wonderful and oh so talented friend Cindy Beach. Cindy and I worked together one year at Convention - supposedly decorating wooden houses. We finished one and just got the base coat on the other one but did we have a great time chatting! The houses sit on a windowsill in my craft room - still unfinished - as a reminder that quite often stamping is about so much more than stamping!

Enjoy the hop!

Fantastic card Linda! I love the hearts running down the side of the card. I would never have thought to put Real Red and Crisp Cantaloupe together but they look awesome together. Must try it! Well done on your first SRC Hop!

Linda, I love what you created with that sketch. I saw the sketch earlier this week and puzzled over it but you ran with it and made a fabulous card! Love the little piece of silver thread. Such a fun detail! I have always loved your work and am so glad you are part of the Stamp Review Crew!
