Patty Loves Valentine's Day

It's blog hop day over at InStyle Stamps! If you are joining me from Sandie's blog, welcome! She made a gorgeous project, as always. That girl just oozes talent. I want to be just like her when I grow up ;)

Since the theme for our blog hop this month is Valentine's Day, I figured the new Patty Love set would be just perfect. Have you seen the whole set? It's available in the store right now!

I made a 6"x6" card in some yummy colors - they remind me of love and chocolate (is there a better combo?). I colored Patty with Copics (E00, E35, E37, E25, E27, E29, R27, E31, B91) and popped her up on dimensionals. Just like I usually do, I colored the base image as well (though not with as much detail) before adding the top image. I sponged just inside the nestie frame with Tim Holtz distress ink (Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy) before I took the panel out. My paper is from Basic Grey's Jovial line - it doesn't have to be for Christmas! I finished off the card with an avalanche of Primas.

Thanks so much for hopping by today! Your next stop is the mega talented Jessica Fick - just wait until you see what she has to share with you :) If you've missed any stops so far, head back over to the InStyle Stamps blog. And remember, after you finish the hop you can go back to the InStyle Stamps blog to leave a comment about your favorite new image from the January releases and be eligible to win a $25 goodie bag.
