Anchored, Elegant and Sweet

 It has been a fun-filled week of projects at 
as we've teamed up with  Sweet Stamp Shop!
I've paired a couple of their stamps with the new
Anchored & Classique: Elegant Collections to create these cards

First up, I have a rather masculine style
I cut a portion of the Anchored Enhancement paper to use as the backdrop for my 
initial stamping.  From the "Anatomy of Love" Stamps,I used the cluster of rounded 
squares and stamped them haphazardly across the paper with a black Staz On ink.  

Next, I stamped the image onto several designs found in the Anchored 6X6 Paper Bundle.
 I hand-cut the small squares and then adhered them over the matching stamped 
images on the paper.  For extra dimension, I hand stitched a few X's over the 
largest squares with a stormy blue thread.

For this next card, I combined two stamp sets
I used the Waterlily stamp and sentiment and then the leaves found in the
 "What's For Dinner" Set.  I used the neutral side of the Elegant Foundations 2 paper
 and stamped the lily image in both VersaMagic Midnight Black  and Sea Breeze
I hand-cut the images out and then arranged them over the  Elegant Journal Card.

The leaves were stamped with a VersaMagic Bamboo ink and then adhered. 
I also used the Midnight Black ink to add color to the wooden butterfly. 
Sweet Stamp Shop stamps give you a nice, clean image with a variety of ink types.

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
