Stamper's Dream Blog Hop!

February 24, 2011

Happy Thursday morning!! Today we are doing a super fun blog hop at Stamper's Dream, and there are two fabulous prize packages that you can win!  So, keep reading to find out how you can win!

But first up is the card that I created for the blog hop.  I seriously just love this sweet little card...it's kind-of scrumptious!  I happened upon a sketch blog that I hadn't heard of, so I used Tuesday Morning sketch #82 for my card as well! Here it is:
 "A Sweet Treat for a Sweet Person" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (kraft) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lush: Blue Damask, Pink Houndstooth) 
Vellum: The Paper Company
Stamps: Impression Obsession (Sweet Treat Cling & Sweet Treat Words cling)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: dune) 
Ribbon: Bo Bunny
Twine: Lawn Fawn Trimmings
Pearl: Zva Creative
Flower: Prima
Jewels: Glitz Design
Corner Rounder: EK Success 
Circle Cutter: Creative Memories
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Steel Scalloped Die: Papertrey Ink

Instructions:  Fold kraft cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Cut blue damask paper a 1/2" smaller than the card, and round the bottom corners.  Cut a scalloped edge from cream cardstock, adhere to the bottom of a pink dot paper strip, and then adhere to the blue damask block.  Tie ribbon around pink dot strip, and then adhere the entire block to the card front.  Cut a circle from cream cardstock, and stamp the sentiment to the top of it.  Stamp the cupcake to vellum and then cut out.  Stamp it again to pink dotted paper, cut out, cover in glitter and then adhere to the vellum piece.  Add twine trim to the bottom of the vellum cupcake and accent the middle with a pearl.  Adhere the entire cupcake to the cardstock circle, and accent with a blue paper flower.  Adhere the entire circle piece to the front of the card, and then add three jewels in the lower right corner of the card to finish. 

Here is a close-up shot of that sweet little cupcake.....it is so yummy!  And as a non-coloring stamper...paper piecing is a great way to add texture and color in a different way!
So, I know that I said a little something up top about some giveaways!  Michelle from Stamper's Dream is giving away two prize packages!  Here are the images of them:
So, two lucky comments will win one of these prize packages!  But, we aren't telling you which blogs the winning comments will be chosen from!  Thus, it is called a blog hop...tee hee!  So, if you happened upon my blog by chance, I would suggest you start from the beginning and start hopping!  Here is the link list so you can be on your way!  Just don't forget to leave a comment first!! ♥♥♥
