February Angel Art Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I'm participating in the February Angel Art Friendship themed blog hop. Did you knw that February was national friendship month? Here are my two cards with the sentiment friend or friendship incorporated in.

This first one I kept clean and simple!

The big bold sentiment is from the set Friendship strips and it is stamped in Palette True Black and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The flower stamp is from Petal pack and is stamped in Versamagic Spring Pansy and then also embossed. I layered this onto the purple card stock found in the Angelee paper pack. The bottom is embossed using my cuttlebug and the flower embossing border. A bow tied in a satin ribbon finishes this off.

This next one is not my usual style.
Sentiment stamps are from the set Just Because. Ivory card stock is used for the base of the card and all dp is from the Mimi collection. I used a butterfly paper punch and punched out a few butterflies from the same paper collection and added them "flying" around the card. Nestabilities label used to cut out the label and it's popped up with foam on the card. I generally don't mix this many papers on a card, but I thought that this turned out pretty fun - all though a bit bright.

Ok, you can now go to these blogs and see other Angel Art centered around the sentiment Friends. They have some awesome examples of what you can find throughout TAC's magalogues and catties relating to friendship! So, sit back and enjoy the show!
