FEBRUARY Stamp N' Hop -- Love

Welcome to this months Stamp N' Hops blog hop this months theme is Love, thinking St Valentine's day, an international day to show those all those who you love some kind of appreciation and what a better way than a handmade card which you have spent time making. Even if it is #simplestamping why not. 

This is also the second month for Sale-A-Bration (SAB), and what a good time to look at jumping on board with Stampin' Up! even if it is for the 20%-25% discount which is what I did almost 2 years ago now. Here is the link if you are based in New Zealand to see what amazing offer Stampin' Up! has given us. Get an amazing extra $90 worth of product.

If you want to shop/Join please search me Andre Gordon in the demonstrator search as I do not have a personal web page, as I have personally found that it is not working for me... I also hold 3 stamp classes a month 1 for beginners and 2 for everyone else. Here is the link for the class information 

Remember with SAB you get a free product with every multiple of $110, now you need to remember all these freebies are limited time only, and as stocks run out then they run out. 

This month I wanted to do #simplestamping with one of my projects...
Here are the supplies I used, with the stamp set called Incredible Like You. This is an amazing set as it is a 2-Step stamp and simple to line up... 

Product List

Here is my card:
Card Base: Thick Whisper White

Product List

This card has 3 layers and it is important that you make sure that you measure them correctly, here is the link.

My suggestion is that you cut out all the hearts, adhere this to your base, then run through the subtle embossing folder if you want to. Then you will want to cut around the leaves die on the mint macaron card stock, and adhere your adhesive sheet behind this, next you will want some scrap Whisper White to cut out 3 of the 'love' and 'you' but make sure you adhere BEFORE you die cut these. Then make sure you adhere the adhesive sheet behind some basic black then die cut it. You will then need to layer the Whisper White Card Stock on top of each other, then add the Basic Black, this gives you a nice raised 'Love You'

I've not a product list but if you are wanting something a little more non-traditional try this one
