Valentine Notepad!


Today is my 1st blog post for ABC Toys and Crafts!!
Im sooo excited to be designing for this wonderful company, Julie is the owner, and she has sooooo many wonderful products to choose from!
If you havent been to the ABC store you will want to go and check it out!!
Right now you can get the Martha Stewart Doily lace border punch for 11.19 that is an Awesome deal!!
I received the stamps used on this card/notepad from Julie and instantly knew what I wanted to design with them!


I first started with the background stamp from Hero Arts called " Hearts Flourishes" I just love this stamp.

I stamped the background and then colored in with copics. Next I airbrushed the edges with the airbrush copic system.


For the sentiment tag, I stamped just the top part of the background on a white piece of cardstock, and then placed the spellbinder Label 5 over the stamped background to figure out where I wanted to cut. Next I stamped just the Valentine from the stamp Happy Valentines Day, by coloring the Valentine with black marker.






For the border I used the Martha Stewart Punch around the page Lattice punch(Im soooo Loving this punch) to add some borders to the sides! I added sewing, and some ribbon for my bows!

Here is the inside of my notepad!








Thank you for stopping by and Hope you will stop by the ABC Toys and Crafts blog HERE to see my very 1st post as one of the new DT members!!! :) Hugs,

Cheryl
