Welcome to the Paper Trail Blog Hop for January!
You should have arrived from Amy's blog, but this is a circular hop, so it doesn't matter where you begin. ;)
This month we are featuring the La Belle Vie paper packet.
I made a couple of cards for this month's hop.
First up is this "hello" card.
The little paper squares are cut to 1/2" x 1/2".
Idea credit for this one goes to the CTMH Art Department who created this amazing cover on a Canvas Journal.
And here's my second card.
This one is a 6x6 Kraft card to welcome a baby girl.
I stamped and clear embossed the owl with Black ink directly onto a piece of the light pink B&T paper. Then I stamped and embossed it again onto a scrap piece of Colonial White cardstock, and then trimmed the eyes out with my scissors and pop-dotted them with 3D foam tape for added dimension.
The branch was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (cut at 2 3/4"), and the leaves were from the Cricut Artiste cartridge (cut at 1/2" and 1/4").
Here are what the papers from La Belle Vie look like:
And you might be wondering about the adorable owl I used on my card.
It is from the stamp set included in the Whooo's Your Valentine kit, available only until January 31st for just $10 with a minimum $35 order.
This is what the stamp set from the kit looks like:
Also, with a new month, there is a new Stamp of the Month available for January, for just $5 with a $50 minimum purchase.
Thanks for visiting me today.
Please continue along the Paper Trail Blog Hop by visiting Connie's blog.
Happy creating, and happy New Year! :)
