Awesome Crafty News!!


Today i have some awesome crafty news to share!!! I am so exited to announce that i have joined The Alley Way Stamps Design Team!! Yay!! I'm sure most of you are familiar with The Alley Way Stamps, if you are not (where have you been?!?! LOL) click here to check out the blog and all the other new and returning Design Team ladies!

I'll be starting with the January release but until then i made a card for you and i thought i would mention that on November 30th TAWS is having their December release and you are going to want to check it out!!

Now on to my card! Its a Christmas card (i know, big surprise, huh!). I used the Merry & Bright freebie, found here. And the heart and stitch stamps from the In Stitches set, found here.

I printed the sentiment and then used a square die to cut it out. Then i stamped the heart several times on different pattern papers from a Christmas paper pad. I cut them out and adhered them around the frame.

Then i used some snowflakes and sequins to dress up the hearts a bit. I used some red floss and a french knot to adhere them to my square.

Next i stamped the ziz-zag stitch horizontally across my card and adhered the square with foam tape!
