You Are Loved Blog Hop Challenge

Here we are on our final day of peeks! We hope you have enjoyed hopping along, and you still have time to hop!! 

It has been awhile since we released a flower set from Torico, so this month, we have a GORGEOUS one from her! I can only imagine the elegant cards you all will make with this gorgeous set.

You Are Loved is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 5 stamps and will sell for $12.00.

I went really simple with this card, mostly because I have insomnia and have slept less than 10 hours in four days, and also because the main image is SO gorgeous! I colored it with Copics, and layered it with Banana Split(Bazzil) and Grapesicle cardstock(MFT). I used some MME Oliver paper, and Grapesicle grosgrain, and that was all. 

Would you like to win the new You Are Loved stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, May 25th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

Happy Birthday Bestie!!

Today is one of my most favorite people's birthday, and we are celebrating her birthday with a little blog hop!! 

If you don't already know her, and you haven't been hopping, it's Jessica Knutsen's, owner of There She Goes Clear Stamps, birthday. Her birthday always falls during release week, but we didn't want her to think we forgot her, so we interrupt this regularly scheduled program to say Happy Birthday to one of my bestest friends! I love you so much, and can't imagine what my world would be like without you in it!


I made this card for Jessica using the SUPER cute new Amalia Ballerina. I wanted to use her during the peeks, but decided today was the PERFECT day to show her off! I paired her with the Sentimental Birthday's set, some MME Oliver paper, and Nightshift Blue, Smooth White, Berrylicious, and Banana Split cardstock. I finished it up by embellishing her with some Nightshift Blue grosgrain, a Nightshift Blue, Berrylicious, and Sweet Tooth button with hemp through them, and some Michael's brads.

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to head to Jessica's blog and say hi and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
