Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions 2 New Product Blog Hop! Our newest catalog was just released on May 1 and there are so many AWESOME new products! Deciding what to feature for this blog hop was a tough choice! I can't wait to see what everyone has created! If you came from Haley Dyer's blog you are in the right spot! The hop is a big circle so when you get back to me, you will know that you completed the hop. If you saw my Favorite Things list on my Facebook page you saw that I listed Where Happiness Bloom Stamp and Thin Cuts as my most favorite!  So, it was only fitting that I feature this on this new product blog hop!

May Stamp of the Month - To My Bestie

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring To My Bestie.  A set of 19 stamps.  It includes 5 different sentiments!  The hop is a big circle.  If you came from Brandi Robinson's Blog blog you are on the right track!  If you started with me, you will know you finished the hop when you get back to my post!  Look for the next blog to hop to at the bottom of my post!   I went with soft colors of Heather, Mink and Ballerina for this card.  The paper is from Sweet Girl.  I envisioned the card with the hand holding the bunch of flowers outside of the frame.   So I cut White Daisy cardstock to fit inside the rectangle frame but longer on the bottom.   I stamped the image, colored with watercolor pencils and THEN I trim around the hand and cut across the bottom to fit inside the frame.   I stamped and colored the bunch of flowers, then trimmed and placed under her hand.  I added clear sparkles to finish the card.    Here are the products th
