From the Heart - Pals January 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

My blog features products from the the New 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalog!!  I used the new  BRUSHO Crystal Colors Watercolor Ink Crystals and Stampin' Blends Markers with both resist emboss  and masking  techniques. 

 Definitely from the heart!   The black and white PARTY PANDAS stamp set  from the Sale-a-bration catalog is perfect against any colorful background.  Here the  resist emboss technique is used with BRUSHO colors to create a fun background using the embossed PLAYFUL BACKGROUNDS stamp set from the AC (141920).  Our Panda is fussy cut and set up on SU dimensionals.  The new Stampin' Blend Markers were used to color and shade Panda's balloon.  

Any reason to celebrate is perfect and "from the heart" with our cute Panda!  What sets this card off are the CELEBRATE YOU THINLITS DIES also from Sale-a-bration.  

Send a heartfelt thank you or even Valentine wishes to someone special!  Our sweet PANDA is set against a patterned background created with BRUSHO and a mask from the PATTERN PARTY DECORATIVE MASKS set.  

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on February 14, 2018. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave me a comment. I would really appreciate that.
