Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come. 

 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" OH Baby"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Not So Ugly"

When I first got my hands on today's featured set, I knew I had to create something vintage with it.  So I pulled out my K&Company Valentine 12x12 specialty designer paper and got to work. 
I started out by stamping my roses from Love, Love, Love and the swan from Not So Ugly in memento tuxedo black ink onto MFP white card stock, colored with prismacolor markers and then cutting them out.  After matching my designer paper to the scarlet card stock, I punched out a matching tag from the K&Company paper then layered it before adhering the tag and my cut out pieces to the card.  The final touches were to add some red organdy ribbon from Michael's $1 bins and diamond ice stickles to highlight the tag and my stamped pieces.
My second project also features the same K&Company designer paper, along with a punched out tag, however with a softer look.  The sentiment is from Love, Love, Love and is stamped directly onto the punched out designer tag in memento black ink with Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink stippled directly over it before adding some pink organdy ribbon from the Michael's $1 bins.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
