Welcome to the Hop!!

Hello, and welcome to this months My Favorite Things Release Blog Hop!! Today's hop started with Kim, so be sure to head to her blog to get started!! If you are back, you should have come from Jody's!!

For my first card, I used the new Grow Love set. I am LOVING these super cute new trees!! This one is one of my FAVES! The leaves, swing, and trunk come as separate stamps so you are free to use them whatever way you choose. I stamped all mine with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on an MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored it all in with my Copics. My grass was also drawn in with my Copics. My DP is from the Good Morning Sunshine pack from SU. All the accessories except for the spiral clip, came from SU as well. I did a bit of piercing, and it was done!

For my next project, I used the new Trick or Treat set. I used the Round Top Box template from the SCS website, which I printed out onto Pumpkin Pie card stock. I then cut it out, and stamped the pumpkins from the set all over it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then stamped one of the pumpkins on a Perfect Panel. The pumpkin was then colored with my Copics. I cut it, and it' s layers out with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with my Ribbon Slide dies. All the ribbons are from SU, and the spiral clips are from Joanne's. This is also my project featured in this month's How'd They Do That Tips and Tricks, so be sure to check that out!!
