ICS Blog Hop Spring Has Sprung!


Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase spring themed paper crafting projects projects. You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Petal Promenade designer series paper is so pretty with the fabulous photographic floral images. I paired it with shimmery white cardstock to amp up the wow factor. The pearlized doilie adds another layer of glimmer along with the silver metallic edge ribbon. The Ruffled embossing folder can be fully appreciated on the inside of the greeting card.

Create the rounded corners on the patterned paper by inserting the paper through the backside of the Pretty Label punch.

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by my fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring a Tic Tac Toe Challenge. We pick 3 squares from the grid in tic tac toe form and design using the options in the squares. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Sandrine Jse’s blog and her fabulous project.

My hop design features the Alpine Adventures stamp set and Alpine Sports Thinlets.

I added Red Rhinestones for my embellishment, used Whisper White Baker’s Twine for the ribbon and a Pearlized Doilie for the circle.

The Swirls and Curls textured impression embossing folder adds just the right texture to an early espresso card base to complete the snow scene. Other cardstock is whisper white and real red along with Wood Textures designer series paper.

All the supplies used and a Big Shot too!
