"Hearstrings DT BLOG HOP"

Hi everyone!  It is BLOG HOPPING time over here with the Heartstring Design Team to showcase some amazing stamps from My Heart Stamps for You.  If you hopped on over here from Shelley's Blog, then you right where you need to be.  If you would like to start hopping from the beginning, click right HERE!

I have been so super busy, I made this card a few weeks ago because I just knew I wasn't going to have time.  After I made it, I wanted to share it with everyone right then and there because it was so stinkin' cute.  So without further ado...

...For the base of the card, I used Kraft Paper (8 1/2 x 4 1/4).  I used these really cute birdie stamps ( I have to think about where these stamps are from) and colored them in with prismacolor pencils and blending tools.  I stamped these birdies directly on the kraft paper to see an illusion of a shadow behind them as I set them on pop dots.  Using a border punch (Upper Crest) for the birdies to rest upon followed by a really thick brown and white polk-a-dot ribbon.  I finally used a heart punch to cut out five hearts in a white cardstock and attached them to ribbon that coordinates with the colors used for the birdies.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment 'Friendships are tied together with Heart Strings' from our sponsor My Heart Stamps for You


Before you leave, I am giving away some BLOG CANDY.
