Heartstring Designs July Summer Loving Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop...

You should have started here: Heartstring Designs: http://heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com/
And that is how you get to me :-)


I am so excited to be joining the Heartstring Designs Design Team.  First up is an easel card equipped with a few stick-pins to use on other projects or to just enjoy. 
I used the Authentique paper line that was in our kit this months  I love to ink my projects and this is no exception.  I created a rosette from the paper for the front and even used the scrap piece of baker's twine that was used to wrap the ribbon that came in the kit.
From the angle you can see how the card is an easel and it stands up by the added paper and stick-pins on the inside.  The items that I used that were not included in the kit, was the pins and the Tim Holtz ink.  
What's a 4th of July without a star!  I created a 6" star and scored each point to create the 3D affect.  I then cut the "4th of July" from the paper line using my die cut machine.  I used pop dots to raise it up some.  I inked the ribbon to give it the aged fill and inked the entire star and lettering.  The tag was from a sticker in the kit and I inked it as well.  You can barely see it, but the star is adhered to a paper straw.  Enjoy and come back and see us tomorrow for more fun and games.
