Paper Crafts magazine Presents: 350 Cards & Gifts Blog Hop

Welcome to the 350 Cards and Gifts Blog Hop, celebrating the publication of Paper Crafts newest magazine.
I am so lucky to have 6 projects published in this magazine.  This call was a real experience for me...  it  was my first time creating other items, not just cards.  I have 2 card sets, a bookmark, a gift bag, some gift tags, and a gift card holder featured in the magazine.  This makes me so happy. :)
For this blog hop, we were asked to create a project using one of the fabulous patterns from the magazine.  All the templates and patterns can be found HERE at the Paper Crafts Website.  I have created a project using Alicia Thelin's Housewarming Home Container Pattern.  You can find her fab project on page 100 of the magazine.
I loved making this - I stamped the windows and doors from a house from Hero Arts Mi Casa set onto 7Gypsies patterned paper, then stuck them to the kraft house which I'd stamped lightly with Graph Background.  Simple and fun. :)  Thanks for the inspiration Alicia.
Now, make sure you visit all these amazing artists' blogs, all of whom have loads of projects in the magazine:
         Betsy Veldman
Lucy Abrams - YOU ARE HERE

Then, leave a comment at the Paper Crafts Connection blog to be in with the chance of winning a fun giveaway!
Finally, leave a comment by midnight on Sunday April 10th here on my blog as I am giving away a copy of 350 Cards and Gifts.  Yay!  (Giveaway closed and winner contacted.)

Thoughtful Fox...

So here's my final three-cards-with-one-stamp card made with Hero Arts Sleepy Fox.
This card combines paper from THIS gorgeous pad, with a sentiment from THIS yummy set.  It's so EASY making cards when you have such great products.  I can't say enough how much I love Hero Arts and My Mind's Eye.
Anyway - have a happy rest of your weekend.  see you Monday.

Poorly Fox

So here's card two of my three-cards-with-one-stamp card set for  The stamp I am playing with is one of my all time favourites - Hero Arts Sleepy Fox.
Today's card is a Get Well Soon card. My husband thinks the fox looks jaundiced. :)
To make the tag, I lightly stamped Hero Arts Raindrop Background onto kraft card with Antique Linen distress ink, then stitched the edge and inked with Vintage Photo ink.  I used more yummy flocked Thickers, inking the edges to coordinate with the tag.  The fox is stamped onto more Gertie paper, and his nose is a little Hero Arts pearl. Yummy seam binding and twine from The Ribbon Girl finished it off.
