Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #11

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop. We are three Close To My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping, and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd of each month, we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project. There are only three stops on this hop, so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. When you finish hopping, be sure to check out the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!

Our February challenge is a NOM NOM challenge. Anything food or drink related counts! I pulled out the We Belong Together stamp set and got to work on a valentine card.

Isn't that little pizza dude adorable?! I knew he would be my focal point, so I selected a pattern from the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4 book to showcase him. The background paper is from a retired set of Enchantment Fundamentals. The clear embossed hearts create a subtle texture. I used our Basic Heart Thin Cuts to cut the heart shape from the scallop square panel, then backed the opening with vellum to soften the background. The adorable pizza dude is colored with our Watercolor Pencils, softened with the Small Round Watercolor Brush, and popped up over the heart cut-out with Thin 3-D Foam Dots.

I wanted to add a few sparkly accents, but couldn't find the perfect color. ShinHan markers and Purple Glitter Hearts to the rescue! I made custom accents that work perfectly with my design by coloring three glitter hearts with the Carmine ShinHan marker. The white glitter ribbon border carries a little of the sparkle down to the bottom of the card as well.

The inside sentiment and hearts are from the retired December SOTM, A Little Bit of Pun. I mimicked the card front design, leaving enough room to write a short message. All of my stamping was done with Nutmeg Ink.

Thanks for hopping by today! Hop over to Lisa's Blog and Donna's Blog to see what they created for you, then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!
