January Stamp of the Month - Cross Stitch Wishes

Even if you don't like to sew, I think you will love the January Stamp of the Month, Cross Stitch Wishes!  

I don't very often take out pink in my craft room, but I really wanted to make a Valentine's Day card with these pretty stitches.

I used blush ink and the "XO" stamp in the set to create background on the lower portion of the card.  I took out cotton candy ink to stamp the sentiment box, banner, and hearts.  On of my favorite products is retiring at the end of January - the color ready seam binding ribbon.  It is a plain white ribbon that easily colored with ink.  I simply used a sponge dauber and cotton candy ink to create this beautiful pink ribbon.  I had a piece of pink cotton lace in my stash and fit perfectly on this card.  The grey rose is from the slate mini medley collection, and I finished off the card with some sparkles on the banner.

I hope that your new year is starting out most blessed!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Stunning (as usual)! Simply gorgeous, Brenda! Love how you used the xo to create a background paper. I really hate to see the seam binding retire!

Loved your card so much I had my girls make a variation of it. You can see my version on my blog Not quite as nice as yours, though.
