While the Cat’s Away…the Mice Will Play Blog Hop!

 

Boy, this sure has been a great hop so far!!!  Only two more stops to go! If you have arrived here from Debi Tullier’s blog, you are in the right place!!!  If you would like to join in on all the festivities, be sure to start at KimberlyRae’s blog! 

 

Today in honor of the eBosser, I have a special giveaway!  I am giving away to one lucky person a Spellbinders Label #6 die set.

The eBosser can cut almost any die and these will be great to use in the eBosser!  I will explain how to enter to win this, but first I want to share with you my project!!!

 

With the theme of Love & Valentines, I just had to use this image from eCraftCentral.com!

Isn’t that gorgeous!!  I am hoping that more images from the Ella collection come to eCraftCentral soon.  I had the idea to use this image with a “shower of hearts” so here is what I came up with.

DSC_0022-4

I cut the Ella image from black cardstock and put it on a white card front.  To create the “shower of hearts”  I cut out several 1/2” hearts from Fundamentals 1 SD card.  I also went through several of my stamp sets and found lots of little hearts and stamped them on the card base to create a little dimension.  After my card front was completed, I put it on a card base made from Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet cardstock.

 

Next I went to work on my sentiment strip.  Using my computer and a handwritten font, I created a banner shape that was wide enough to add the “love”.

Isn’t that “love” beautiful?  Well I got that from eCraftCentral.com too!

image

I cut that out of the same red cardstock that I used for the hearts.  This cardstock is AMAZING!!  We are also going to be featuring this on the eCraft Design Team starting next week, so be on the lookout for this.  That “love” is only about 1/2” tall and cutting something like that on cardstock is difficult, but this new cardstock makes it a breeze! 

GIVEAWAY TIME!!!

To win the Spellbinders Label #6 die set, you must be follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post with a way to contact you.  International friends are welcome although I will substitute an electronic gift certificate in lieu of the die set because of the shipping.  You have an entire week to get your comments in (only 1 per person please) and I will announce the winner on Saturday February 4th! Good luck everybody!

Now, in case you have lost your way along the blog hop, here is the full roster.
