I am so excited to be posting today- I was asked a little while back by the SWEETEST Debbie M. from Paper Sweeties to participate in her BIG 2nd birthday Blog Hop! How could I say no?!
You should have arrived here from Colleen's blog, if not I suggest you go to the Paper Sweeties blog to start from the beginning- you won't want to miss all the fun! There's even some big prize giveaways (you'll want to be sure to leave comments along the way *wink wink*)
I couldn't wait to play with these goodies when they came in the mail!
Since this IS a birthday celebration, I made this birthday card using the adorable Paper Doll stamp Abigail, and had some fun mixing clothing from her extensive wardrobe!
I colored her hair and skin with copics and paper pieced her outfit. I used the top from Enjoy Your Day set and the apron, shoes & sentiment from Sweetie Pie! Oh! and you can find those awesome flower sequins in the Paper Sweeties shop too!
I couldn't stop at just one card! I also received this Showering You With Love bundle set- it has matching metal dies! This set is super sweet and so fun to use- and so versatile for birthday, baby, & bridal showers etc. Now, for this card- I die cut the umbrella, stamped the image and instead of paper piecing I colored it with copics.
With some creative masking I made my own greeting- I used the "showering you with love" from the set along with the 'birthday' from the above mentioned Enjoy Your Day to have it read: "Showering you with birthday LOVE"! Again added some sequins- and see that gorgeous ribbon- it's hand-dyed seam binding available in the store too!
Ok that's enough from me... now I'm thrilled to pass you along to the next stop on the hop to my new crafty *friend* & fellow Gallery Idol finalist, Miriam!
and just in case you get lost along the way here is the FULL hop order!
