Homespun Hearts

Welcome to the My Favorite Things teasers for January! Lots of lovin' this month! All the release details you will find at the bottom of my post....enjoy! Mark January 8th on your calendar....release day! So here is a look at what is coming.....
Pin It
Starting off with a couple of sets from Lisa Johnson Designs (LJD). I used both "Homespun Hearts" and "Hearts and Stitches" in this card. There are some FANTASTIC Die-namics being released this month too....and this card shows you a couple of them.

A new Heart Doily combined with the new Heart STAX Die-namics. I love the heart doily as it cuts out all those little border hearts that I could mix and match. I cut the heart doily in both my patterned paper and Sweet Tooth paper. Mounting the sweet tooth doily on a Wild Cherry Heart STAX base and then matching it up with the patterned paper doily on my card.
I played a little mix and match with my patterned paper hearts too....
Here is a very clean and simple card using the new Homespun Hearts set. I used the new Rustic Hearts Die-namics which go with the LJD Homespun Hearts set and did a little cut out on my patterned paper strip. I popped up that layer and stamped the coordinating heart....and isn't that sentiment adorable :)

Stamped with Wild Cherry and BRAND NEW Black Licorice ink!

Wrapped a little twine and a kraft button to finish!
