Blog Hop - Made With Love Blog Hop - Part 2


Happy Valentine's Day!

Today i am lucky enough to participate in 2, yes that is 2 blog hops today! I hope you will take a little time to check them both out! I made a Valentine Ensemble: a love banner for Hampton Art/Core'dinations Feature Week and a card and candy jar for Made With Love Blog Hop! There are tons of inspiration and giveaways on these two hops too!!

If you are here from Erin Lee's blog you are in the right place!!

More details and links to Hampton Art & Core'dinations and Part 1 of my Valentine Ensemble are at the end of this post!


For those you might not know, last summer i was lucky enough to make it into Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Top 20 and have had a wonderful time getting to know the other 19 ladies ever since! We talk pretty much every day and have all become good friends. Last year we did a blog hop and are doing it again, only bigger and better this year!!
This year we have awesome giveaways on EACH blog!!! And there is a grand prize from Ribbon Carousel! Details Below!!


For my Valentine ensemble i made a cute jar to fill with candy and a card. To start with i found a smooth glass jar at Michael's. I used my Silhouette to cut a row of negative hearts. Wrap the negative around the jar and ink up each heart with watermark ink.
Add embossing powder to the hearts and CAREFULLY heat the embossing powder. Then fill with candy!! 


I stamped and cut out a little tag, added some flowers and hearts and tied it to the jar with twine. I also stamped and embossed a circle with a die cut heart for the jar lid.





For the card i layered more flowers and hearts (i cut a bunch of each, so i had plenty to play with!) I added a stamped ticket and sentiment along with some twine.


Here is picture of the whole Valentine Ensemble. 

Each designer today on the Made With Love Hop is having a giveaway! Thank you to all wonderful sponsors volunteered prizes for our hop! As you can see below we have some awesome sponsors!!

The Crafts Meow has generously offered up 1 stamp set of your choice!! How cool is that!!! Leave your comment on this post by Thursday, February 21st. I'll be announcing the winner Monday, February 25th!
