Sweet Stamping Treats "Highlights" Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to Sweet Stamping Treats "Highlights" Blog Hop. This hop is all about highlighting some of our favorite stamps from Sweet Stamping Treats. If you arrived here from Amber's blog you are in the right place. If you want to start from the beginning please go to Sweet StampingTreats. This hop is full of great projects and prizes! Sweet Stamping Treats is giving away the entire January release to one lucky hopper who is a follower of Sweet Stamping Treats and comments on all of the blogs in the hop. Plus, there are some single stamps "hidden" in a few of the blogs along the way. For a chance to win one of the singles you must comment on their blogs and be a follower of their blogs too.

  I would also like to thank Amber and Sweet Stamping Treats for having me part of their blog hop. I really enjoyed seeing all the amazing images that you can work with. It is always hard to just choose one as they are all really great. This is my first time working with a digi stamp or being introduced to digi stamps. I had alot of fun working with it which I am now ready to share the card I made using this particular stamp.

My project today is made with the "Love Banner" stamp:

This image worked perfectly for me to create a Valentine's card for the special person in my life. I thought a banner would be perfect to describe Love. I used my Copic Markers and Stamps by Judith Markers to add color to the banner. I also used the 3D Crystal Lacquer to ad the 3D Effect. Again, this was my first time using the 3D Lacquer which I really liked how it turned out and plan on using it again for future projects. 

Materials Used:

White Card Stock for card: 5 x 6
Pink Card Stock: 4-3/4 x 5-3/4
Sweet Stamping Treats Digi Stamp: Love Banner
3D Crystal Lacquer
Stamps By Judith: Tombow Acid Free Watercolor Markers
Copic Markers: E11 Barley Beige, RV23 Pure Pink
