InStyle Stamps Blog Hop

Welcome to the January InStyle Stamps Blog Hop! 

Edited to add...I had my post scheduled for 11:00 AM CST today, but for some reason Blogger didn't play nice today, and it never posted, so I am manually posting it right now.  I'm sorry to those who were looking for my post earlier today.
I am the first stop this month, so you are at the right place to begin hopping.  When you have completed the hop, you should end up back at InStyle Stamps where we would like you to vote for your favorite project. The DT member that receives the most votes will win a prize AND just for voting you also have the chance to win a prize too! 

This month our theme is Hearts, and of course I thought of Valentine's Day.   Since I know I will need to have some treats to hand out for the holiday, I decided to make a treat bag.
I used Lisa and then added the Stack of Hearts to the wagon before printing the image.  The Stack of Hearts image comes with a bow on top of it, but I added a ribbon bow instead.  I intentionally left the space above the bow empty because, before handing these out, I will have the girls write the name of who it is for in that area.

I also made a Valentine's Day Card with Ava Holding Balloons and thought that I would share that as well.
Since this patterned paper is pretty on it's own, and the heart is so large, I went with a simple look.  The balloons and her shoes are covered with a clear glaze marker (the green ones have stickles added as well) and the balloon strings were traced (and drawn in where missing) with a black glaze marker.  I used liquid pearls for her belt.  I also tried something new and colored her skin with E00, E01, E11 and R20, and I think I like that much better than my normal E00, E01, E02 and R20 combo!

Thanks for visiting! Hop on over to Genevieve ~ I know she will have something wonderful to share with you. receive an automatic 5% discount on your purchases, please be sure to go through this link InStyle Stamps.
