U R So Sweet Blog Hop

Hey everyone, this has been such a fun week. We spent this entire week showcasing a particular set of stamps. Mine was the Amazing You stamp set. It was super easy to use those everyday and there are so many other things I could have done with them. They would also work as a set you could use for tags, scrapbook pages and Valentines Day cards.
For today's project I used Kristal's It's Valentines Set.



She makes such awesome stamps. Take a minute and head on over to Kristal's shop and check out her incredible stamps. I know that you will find a bunch that you love. Click here to go to her blog. Use the code sherryfreeship at checkout and you'll get free shipping on your order.

My project for today is a plaque I made for my little girls room.

I used a round plaque that I'd had for a long tie. I painted the edges of the plaque with folk art Champagne acrylic paint. I measured the top of the circle and cut it out of Colorbok Flutter Bye designer paper. Then I used some Iamroses and half back pearls that I got from Kerry Duff (Duffer9904 on youtube). I sprayed the flowers with my homemade shimmer paint, which gave them all of their shine. Then I added a round pink mini paperclip to the cluster of flowers and used that to hold my tag for my project. I used a 1 inch circle punch out of regal rose Stamp-in Up Card Stock and I stamped "with love" from K. Andrew Designs stamps in Jennie Bowlin Spice Tin Ink. I used the die cuts from the paper pack to spell out my little girls name. I really like how it turned out and my little girl loves it. So that makes me very happy.

Next on the hop is Amanda. Be sure to go there and give her lots of blog love.

Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
