Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we are featuring the letter D. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "D" element will be featured in their post.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.

"D" is for Doorknob Hanger! For Valentine's Day, I made these cute little doorknob hangers to hold a couple goodies for my kids. They enjoyed waking up to a special treat hanging on their door.
February's Stamp of the Month - only available until the end of February!!!). I used ink to match the cardstock to give it the tone on tone look. I also cut an extra heart out using Cricut just to enhance the strength of the doorknob cutout (after all, I am planning to stuff these with Valentine's goodies).
The lower part was decorated by placing a piece of silver shimmer trim (this is essentially glitter tape - self-adhesive!) around the top of the opening. I cut out a shape from my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (p. 47) in contrasting color (pink for the red hanger, and red for the pink color) to serve as a backdrop for the fox image (also from the Stamp of the Month Set). The foxes and hearts were stamped on White Daisy cardstock and matted using Slate cardstock. The entire image was adhered using 3-D foam tape onto the front of the hanger. I also used my blending pen to color in the flower on the girl fox, and the nose on the boy fox (using the cotton candy ink pad).
Here is the completed project - ready to be stuffed and hung on my children's doors. While I decorated mine with a Valentine's theme, this image can be cut on any color paper and can therefore be made to fit any theme you can imagine!
I also created a little mini card to go into each doorknob hanger. The card is the heart cutout card image from p. 26 of the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge (cut at 2 3/4"). I outlined the cutout with a Ruby heart cut from the same page. The middle heart is popped up on 3-D foam tape so that it actually comes through the opening.
