Cross Stitch Wishes

Hellllllooooooo There Friends! (Did that just make you think of Mrs. Doubtfire?)

My name is Robin Novak and I am thrilled to be part of the I Heart Stamping with Paper Crafter Anonymous Design Team. For me, this is a dream come true and I hope that I can do the product justice.

I made a few cards using the CTMH January Stamp of the month: Cross Stitch Wishes

When I first started, I didn't have a clear thought of what I wanted to do. I just started stamping the single heart on a 4 x 6 inch piece of white cardstock. I love all of the different colored hearts lined up in this little grid. One thing that I really like about CTMH stamps is they are so user friendly. They are easily conditioned to give the best image possible. They are easily cleaned between colors. Also, since they are clear stamps, you can easily see exactly where you are placing the stamp. I also had some burlap laying around and cut out the burlap flower using the Tim Holtz tattered floral die. The blue flower is from my stash and the leaf is from recollections. The metal flower with the bling is from CTMH and I apologize that I can't recall the exact product information. The pink ribbon stuff is some antique "bias type tape" I found at goodwill years ago. :)

I found the January Stamp of the month to be so versatile and I can foresee using it on more than just Valentine cards. For the this card, I used the Lollydoodle paper line from CTMH for the background paper. I colored the flowers from the cross stitch wishes stamp set with my markers and stamped them at varying heights. The he loves me, he loves me not stamp is from stash and is made by my sentiments exactly. That particular stamp came as one combined stamp and I cut the 2 sentences apart so they would be more versatile, also.

I appreciate you stopping by today and look forward to hearing your thoughts. If you are so inclined, I would love to have you stop by my blog Robin's Nest: Scrap out Loud. Leave me a comment to let me know you were there!

Have a blessed day!
