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!

This stamp is a base and shade stamp!  People will think you colored the flowers but you actually stamp the color into the outline!

For my card is also used the Rectangle Thin Cuts as the border around the card.  Before stamping the image, I used a wash of blue watercolor paint on the background.  After it dried, I stamped the watering can.  To get the brushed galvanized look for the can, I tapped the stamp onto the Charcoal ink pad a few times making sure I had good coverage.  Then I slid the stamp across the pad to give it that streaked look. Next, I stamped the flowers with Canary Ink and then the leaves in Willow.
