VC Rocks Blog Hop- Have a Heart with Twitterpated


Hello, Friends!

Welcome to the first VC Rocks Blog Hop of 2012!
You can begin our blog hop by clicking here.  If you've been following the hop, you probably came from Elizabeth Harris' blog, Love 2 Stamp

For my stop on the hop, I wanted to use the perfect paper for hearts, "Twitterpated."  It's so sweet and romantic!  I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut a heart out of my Riding Hood Red Cardstock.  Then, I used a variety of Twitterpated papers to fill in my heart, giving it a bit of a quilted look.  I finished my card by adding more Twitterpated Blushing Bride paper for my background and Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon in a bow on the side.  The silver brads give the card a little more depth and texture.  I decided my card needed a little more to it, so I added "stitching" with a white gel pen around the outside of the heart.  This adds to the quilted look.  Ironically, there is no stamping on my Stampin' Up card.  With all the great matching products, I didn't add anything stamped this time.  This is very unusual for me but I'm pleased with how my card turned out! 




I hope you've enjoyed my card and will continue on the rest of our blog hop! 

Happy Stamping!


I used the following Stampin' Up suppliet to make this card:

Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red Card Stock
Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
1/2" Blushing Bride Stitched-Poly Ribbon
Metallic Brads
Big Shot
