PWCO January Release Blog Hop!

Happy Friday and welcome to PWCO's January Release Blog Hop! If you came from Nicole's blog, you are on the right track. Here are the cards that I made using this super cute release:


This first image that I used is My Valentine. Don't they make a cute couple? This is such a sweet image.


After coloring and die cutting, I inked the paper with antique linen distress ink when the piece was still in the die.


The patterned paper is from the lovely Hopscotch collection by BasicGrey. The sentiment came with the stamp.


I used the cute Vday Bunny for my second card. This image is sure to make a loved one smile! =)


The image is also inked when the paper was still in the die using what I thought was scattered straw, but it was really wild honey. Yep, misplaced lids... But it still works, right? =)


The patterned paper is also from the Hopscotch collection and the sentiment came with the stamp. All the new stamps are available at the PWCO Store starting today!

That's all I have and it's time to send you to Carisa's blog! Don't forget to comment on each blog since we are giving out 6 stamps (one of each style) for random commenters. Here is the hopping list:


Have fun hopping! =)
