Sweet Stamps New Release Blog Hop


 Sweet Stamps is hosting a blog hop to showcase the new stamps that I designed; a collection of florals.  Visit each team member's blog and collect a letter.  Once you get all the letters, unscramble them to reveal a word.  Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer.  
We will be awarding a first place prize of your choice of 6 stamps from the new release and a second place prize of your choice of 4 stamps from the new release.  We will also be awarding random prizes of rubber stamps chosen from the readers who comment on each member's blog so be sure to leave some love.  Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, June 27th before our next challenge.  Start your hop with my blog and continue through the team. 

And don't forget to return to the Challenge blog and leave your answer as a comment. Good luck and happy hopping!


I'm so excited to share my new line of stamps with you! I hope you like them.

Now on to my card...this was quite an undertaking for me. I believe this is the most detailed card I've ever made. It took a week of me working on it, 
on and off, to get it finished.
First I started with a template I found online. Then I added a "back" to it. (I didn't like how it look folded, with no back.)

Here is the card fully extended from the inside view:

A few close ups of the inside (can you tell I love the inspirations paints?):

I used pop dots to make some of the daisies stand out.


This is the front:


Detail of the front. I used inpirations paints on the center of the flowers:
Products Used:
Berol Prismacolor Pencils
Pop Dots (I popped up some daisies)
Shades Dye Ink (I used ink to accent the edges of the paper) 
I used Buttercup & Butterscotch

Challenges Entered:
A Spoonful of Sugar - Ribbon and Bows
Creative Craft Challenges - Make your own backing paper (daisies)
Crafty Creations - Sparkly (shimmer paints)
