Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free For All!

SRC-Valentine-FFA-bannerRight. Around. The corner.  Are you ready?  We can help!  The Stamp Review Crew inserted this “exceptional” blog hop in the middle of our scheduled lineup — exceptional because we normally focus on a single set for the hop.  This time, we’re focusing on Valentine’s Day.  You probably just enjoyed Nancy’s lovely creations at Iguana Stamp, or maybe you’re starting here — either way, simply click the banner above to see a complete list of the *19* stampers on the hop!

I designed this Grain Sack Heart for a blogger I follow in the “lifestyle/home” category.  (I’ll share more with you in a few days; I hope I can actually send her this card as a thank-you for her inspiration.)  The heart is made of paper, but it’s (hand) stitched and puffed.

Debra Burgin Grain sack heartI was so sure, so very sure, of the saying on this stamp — I thought it would be perfect for a Valentine theme.  And I’ve actually seen it on Valentine’s cards.  But it does not say, “Do more of what you love.”  Still … in this frame and styled in a composition of winter and holiday items, it could pass, right?

Debra Burgin More of what makes you happyI have not yet tired of white card bases and knew when I started working with Painted Petals that I’d make something like this Garden of Love card.  Each of those hearts is punched out, but I discovered an alternative as I kept experimenting.  Come back later this week for more!

Debra Burgin Garden of loveI had so many ideas for this hop that I’ll be showing more in the days ahead.  Some were flops (never to be seen again!), others need some tweaking, and some need to be re-photographed.

Meanwhile, skip over Tanya’s Tinkerin in Ink and enjoy her work.  (Thanks again, Tanya, for everything you do for The Stamp Review Crew!)

    You always inspire me with your projects and your creativity! I love the hand stitched heart on the first card – it is so folk artsy. The sign looks very much like it is meant for Valentine’s Day and is very clever imho. The other card is darling! Love those glimmery, sparkly hearts! Sounds like you had fun with this hop!

  3. Wow your projects are wonderful! Love the row of sparkly hearts! And your puffy heart card is a charmer! I agree that your framed sentiment is perfect for Valentine’s Day!

    A terrific trio, Debra! I love all three of them. The framed piece is sweet and I love the garden of hearts. Your grain sack cloth heart looks like a labor of love and I’m sure will be appreciated by someone who loves this look!

    These are all so great! Love the red card in the frame – so pretty. But my favorite would have to be the first. I have been on a grain sack kick for the last few years and am getting ready to reupholster the loveseat in our living room to look just like your little heart. So cute – and I’m sure your blogger friend will love it!
