Jan 21st

I have two cards to share with you today so let's get started!  The first one features:


City Buildings Cling Background
Seriously Amazing Sentiments


I was definitely encouraging my inner Tim Holtz on this one.  I tend to be a clean and crisp designer but knew that I wanted the City Buildings to be more grungy teamed up with the ultra awesome Seriously Amazing Sentiments.  Both have been stamped with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  I used a sheet of paper from the Pinkfresh Studio Boys Fort collection, which was already distressed looking.  I'm going to squirrel this one away for my boy who heads back to NYC this week.

Next up is a card that features the Kind, Fierce and Brave Mini set:


I teamed up the sentiment with The Ton's Flamingo Print cling background.  I love how this one turned out.  I've been pretty smitten with the pale pink + hot pink color combo.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in gold on a vellum heart.

That's it for me, I can't wait to see how Mayline Jung was inspired...she's your next blog!

In case you get lost along the way, here's today's hop listing:
