Made With Love Blog Hop

Hi there, crafty amigas! You should've arrived here from Jennifer's blog. Welcome to my little space in blogland. I'm so glad you could join the 2012 Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Idol girls for today's Made With Love Blog Hop. 

First card...this card came to me at 11 pm last night. HA WHOOPS. You just never know when creativity is going to zap you. So I rolled with it. I must clean up the aftermath this morning : \

Did you know that I a.) love neon and b.) love maps and anything travel related? It's true. So this was born. I used my new Hero Arts Neon Inks, white embossing ink and this AWESOME set from Unity, Life Is A Journey. {um, FYI, this stamp set is on SALE right now for $12.99. Run.} I added some of my Heidi Swapp Neon Tapes and voila. I thought this would be a cute card to give to your valentine where you first met {awwwww}.
I also made a card using my Silhouette Cameo, a rainbow of cardstock colors and my Unity Stamp Co January 2013 Kit of the Month. I just LOVE my Kit of the Month subscription! Such a great deal at $26 and every month, you get a HUGE sheet of lovely rubber images to get inky with. 
I used the reverse of a cut from the Silhouette store. I then taped various colors of cardstock to the back and then "pop dotted" it to the white card base. The love sentiment is from Unity. Speaking of Unity...

For my prize, I am giving away some LOVELY Unity Stamp Co stamps!!! Please leave a comment on this post for your chance to win by Feb. 21 at midnight. 

Your next stop on the hop is the ever-so-talented Dana. Have fun hoppin!

You may love travel & neon (you must be psyched, lots of travel stamp sets out there now) but I love COLOR and ADORE your rainbow 'LOVE' card as a result. That took a lot of work but MAN was it worth it! No wonder you are a Gallery Idol! The gradient color on your map is pretty as well. Thank you for sharing your art with us. Happy Valentine's Day!

These two cards for the hop are no exception. I love your use of washi tape and the color carried over to the map. The hearts card is amazing to. You have a new follower on your blog. I look forward to pinning many great cards and trying some of them myself. I am new to card making (just this year) but seeing your cards makes me excited to get started. Thank you so much for all the inspiration on not just this post but your entire blog. Great work! :)
