All About Love Stampin' Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Friends "All About Love" Blog Hop! This is my first time hopping with this talented group of people and I am excited to say that I will be participating monthly this year. Thank you Elizabeth Jeanne Thatcher for inviting me. You will see the links to the rest of the hoppers underneath my project. 

I have been having a lot of fun with the Sure Do Love You Bundle and the Waterfront stamp set, both available in the new 2018 Occasions catalog. For this card and gift box combo, I used a piece of watercolor paper I had stamped & watercolored for the box pieces and the strip on the card. 




I will be doing a video tutorial for this fabulous background I am calling Bohemian Rhapsody. 


Just know this, I used several stamps from the Waterfront stamp set, alternately stamping and softening the images with an Aqua Painter. Those wonderful stamps are a MUST HAVE just like I used to tell you that the (now retired) Gorgeous Grunge was a must have. I also used a few images for the gold embossed portion on the gorgeous painted paper. 


I love how this set turned out! The Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was just perfect for the little box. I will fill it up with treats before I give it away with the matching card. 



I hope you enjoyed my projects. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin' Friends today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on February 15, 2018. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that!
