Heartstrings Design Team Blog Hop! with Blog Candy!

Now Closed!
Welcome to The Heartstrings Design Team Blog Hop!!!
Hopefully you have arrived here from Pam's Blog , if not, please start at the beginning with Shelley from Heartstrings.

I created this layout using DCWV Songbird stack and our wonderful sponsor's stamps
My Heart Stamps 4 U
I created the extra bear with Pazzles, but decided not to use.
I altered both stamps used for this layout, below you can see a picture of their original and finished state.
For the bear, I cut his wings off.  I colored with Copic markers and added Xmas Red Stickles. I hand cut the swings seat, used brown hemp cord and 3D foam to add dimension.
For the sentiment, I used the Marvy Uchida Brush Markers in Red and Green and colored the sections I wanted on the stamp one at a time wiping the ink in between uses.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval to cut the label, hand cut the leaf from the paper and added some BG brads.
The three buttons are from Favorite Findings. I added hemp to the middle button.
The frame and corners were cut with my Pazzles and they are Silhouette designs.
And now for the funnest part!  Some Blog Candy!!!!
