Welcome to the first My Pink Stamper Blog Hop of 2012! If you have arrived from my good friend Shelley's Blog you are on the right track! I love Shelley :) If you are just visiting, there is a list below and you can go back to the beginning and start the hop.
I am the last stop on the hop. After you are done, please make sure you go back to My Pink Stamper and play along in the challenge with us! Our challenge this month is A fresh, clean start! We are all making something that we would give to someone or make for ourselves to welcome the start of a brand new year! We are showcasing any and all My Pink Stamper Stamps tonight!
I have to tell you, sometimes Robyn and I (and in this case I) pick challenges and don't think that WE actually have to make something with them. So after I set the challenge, believe me I was shaking my head saying "What was I thinking???!!!!" At any rate this is what I came up with:
To me, fresh and clean is white and crisp. I used the Sophie Cricut cartridge and cut one of the cards on it. I then cut the background layer and ran it through the Cuttlebug.
To get the middle part that I stamped on, I used my Gypsy and removed the contours and just cutting the middle scalloped circle. I then used the My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas set (yes, it is not just for Christmas) to stamp the middle of the card. You can order this set HERE. I knew it wouldn't fit the way it was, so I masked off the word's once at a time and stamped them individually.
I then outlined the edge with Enamel Accents in White.
For the flowers, I used the Flower Shop Cricut Cartridge and cut the basic flower at 1.5". After it was put together I added some glue the the tops of the petals and sprinkled with white glitter.
For the ribbon I dyed some seam binding with Glimmer Mist, bunched it all up and waiting for it to dry in a ball. After dry I tied the bow.
