All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop: January

Welcome to another All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop!  If you just came from Shellie's blog, welcome!  Today we are celebrating the start of Occasions Mini Catalog.  I wanted to do something special for this Hop.  However, apparently my mojo took a vacation and didn't come back early enough.  Caused me severe stress, I tell ya!  But not to worry, it came back just in time for me to show you this beautiful card.
I took my inspiration from the card shown on page 15 of the Occasions Mini catalog.  I stamped the big bird in the heart image from Take It to Heart stamp set as a background.  I cut out the image using the new Framelits die.  I have never used anything like this before.  Let me tell you, IT'S FUN! :)  So easy to use.  You can cut exactly where you want.  The dies themselves are super thin and store easily.  I cannot wait to use these dies on more projects!

Here is a close-up of the heart, so you can see the image a bit better.

Very pretty card! I didn't get the Take it to Heart stamp set but I am starting to think I might need it.

I think the bird/heart stamp in this set is so busy, I didn't really like it until now - what a great idea to stamp it tone-on-tone - your card is really beautiful.
