Jan Valentine Hop Blog Hop

Hello everyone!! What a welcome to the New Year by having a blog hop! I hope your New Year was super fun and exciting!!
First off, you should be arriving here from the crafty Kimberly Kendle 's blog. If you missed the start you should begin at the the DeNami blog to make sure you get all the blogs to be eligible for the prizes! :)

Here's the deets for my cards: 

For the Valentine cards I made for this blog I used the DeNami M55 Large Heart Cookie ( so cute! ) and the XOXO D62 stamp. As an X-Men fan I love X's! I usually try add them wherever I can and this was the perfect opportunity. I used them as the background for most of the cards and the accent. All the cookies are "frosted" by some means,either glassy effects or iridescent ice. The pictures don't really do the "frosting" justice. This time I also used a sewing machine on the cards for the first time! I just got my own sewing machine and am still trying to get the hang of it.



This one was "frosted" using SU Iridescent Ice and I cut out the roses from the cookie stamp. This is the only one picture that kind of shows the gloss from  my cookie's "frosting".

I love the red of the cookie. :)

I wanted to use blue to make it more "manly" for a guy. This is the only one I dry embossed with the little circles for the texture.
This one was actually the last one I made. I used the cutout around as the mask to put the irridescent ice in the middle of the cookie. The piece looked neat against the brown cardstock so I decided to make one extra card. I think it ended up being my favorite.

Such great ideas for your card. I love how different they all look even though you used the same stamp. Using the scrap mask on the last card was a great idea. It turned out wonderfully.
