Global Stamping Friends - Love Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,

The wonderful Global Stamping Friends are back with another international blog hop to inspire your creativity.  This month we are feeling the love.

My project is a wedding congratulations card and I've gone a bit rustic!

I started with Cherry Cobbler card blank for my base card.  I stamped the Tree Rings background stamp in Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then roughed up the edges with a pair of Paper Snips.  This is a really easy way to add texture.  I tore a piece of vellum to create a border and then heat embossed "Congratulations" from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in gold.  My topper image is from the Always and Forever stamp set which co-ordinates perfectly with the background.  I used Very Vanilla cardstock and heat embossed in gold again.  Taking the smallest heart die from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits, I cut a Cherry Cobbler heart to match the card blank and raised this up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I hope you have been inspired by our Blog Hop and are feeling the love too.  Up next is a fabulous project from Amber.  Just click on the image below to keep hopping.  If you get lost there is a list below showing all of the participants this month.  

Happy crafting,
