Kre8tors Blog Hop - Birthday Blooms

Welcome to the March edition of the Kre8tors blog hop.  This month our hop focuses on birthday cards. 

 Here is my card:

I decided to pull out one of my favorite stamp sets, Birthday Blooms.  I just love everything about this set, and had so much fun coloring in the main floral image with my Stampin' Blends.  I also chose to pair this lovely set with a couple of my favorite Sale-a-Bration items.  There are just a few short weeks left of this amazing promotion.  I used the basket weave embossing folder, and also the Basic Grey shimmer ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Combo Pack.

Next up on our hop is Becky Browning, and I am sure she has something fun to share.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

#SSINKCC50 - Eclectic Expressions

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Today, over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration we are starting a new challenge, a color challenge.

I just love these colors together!  For my card, I decided to feature the new Eclectic Expressions stamp set that was part of the second release of Sale-a-Bration items.  Here is what the set looks like:

I love the artistic and graphic feel of this set.  Here is my card:

I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base, and added a Sweet Sugarplum mat.  On my sheet of Whisper White I stamped the large, solid circle image in Soft Sky, to cover part of the white.  Over that, I stamped the smaller dotted circle in Sweet Sugarplum, and accented both of those with the sparkle stamp in Rich Razzleberry.  I added a strip of Soft Sky cardstock that I stamped the greeting on, and cut one end with the Triple Banner Punch.  To embellish my card, I added some rhinestones, and a bow.

That is all I have to share for today, be sure to head over to SSInkspiration to see what the other design team members came up with, and to play along with this fun challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
