Gossamer Blue January Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for hopping along to my blog today, I have a couple Valentine Cards made with items from the January Add-on Kit #2.

My inspiration was the American Crafts DIY Shop Chalkboards.  I gold heat embossed the colored ones using Zing Gold Glitter, and for the one that was already gold I used Judikens Iridescent embossing powder.  Using Simon Says Stamp White Pigment ink and Simon Says Stamp Valentine Spoons stamp set + the Large Hearts stamp set, I stamped the sentiment and hearts on each board.  The embellishing on the boards was done with Crate Paper's Kiss Kiss sticker sheet and Pebbles confetti hearts.

I knotted some red twine thru a small hole punched in the top edge of a standard A2 card base so the recipient can hang as a decoration if they would like.  Using some very strong tape runner adhesive, I glued the chalkboards to the card base and then trimmed off the extra to make the card base a bit shorter and not as noticeable.  

Thanks for reading, please keep hopping along!  If you encounter any broken links along the way, please refer to the master list on the Gossamer Blue Blog HERE.
