OSAT Blog Hop - Love Is In The Air!

Hi Everyone, you should have arrived here from the talented Sara Levin's blog..if not, please follow the links below, and start from the beginning so you don't miss a thing!

Today I am featuring a card using a Memory Box stamp set called "Love Grows".  My friend Vanessa over at Butterfly Reflections, Ink has a nice little selection of Memory Box stamps, including this set in her store!  Here's a link, go check it out!

So let me just state the obvious right away, I LOVE mushrooms!  I can eat them in and on everything and I especially love to color them!  So I started by sponging Broken China and Mowed Lawn Ranger Distress inks to color my sky and grass.  I stamped, Copic colored and fussy cut all the images.  I chose the second largest Cross Stitched Oval die from Gina Marie Designs to build my scene, with lots of mushrooms and a cute little gnome near his garden!  

This is just one of Gina's brand new Cross Stitched Die Shapes, check out her store to see more!  

I'd also like to share another little project I made.  This is the sweetest mini journal inspired by Lawn Fawn!  Did you notice that I've used the same sentiment on this journal that I used on my card?  Check out the tutorial to make one or ten for yourself!
