Love You/Friends Forever


Hi everyone! Welcome to the Inspired by Stamping and Die-Versions Blog Hop.  Twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter.  Yay!!!  Inspired by Stamping, which designs and manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters, has teamed up with Die-Versions, makers of low profile metal dies which works with virtually every machine out there and cuts through most materials, to create this special eye candy of Spring themed projects.

One lucky "hopper" will get a total prize package of $100 in gift certificates, a $50 gift certificate from Inspired by Stamping AND Die-Versions, so you can stock up on some awesome products both of the companies have to offer.

For your chance to win the grand prize, visit all of the participating blogs, leaving a comment at each, then leave a comment telling us what you like the most about Spring at the Inspired by Stamping blog.  All comments entered between now and April 28th at 10pm (Pacific time) will be eligible for the grand prize.

Now a little about my project:


Inspired by Stamping graciously supplied all the DV Dynamos with clear stamp sets, trims, flowers, and a paper pack.  All of my patterned papers are from their Vintage Floral paper pad and my sentiment is a combination of the Arrows stamp set and It's Your Birthday stamp set.

I die cut the Butterfly Flourish from Die-Versions out of vellum and used Copic markers to quickly color it.  The flowers, also from Inspired by Stamping, were adhered on top of the flowers on the die cut.

The new Quatrefoil Background was die cut from a piece of white cardstock that I had applied Sea Foam embossing powder (from Sparkle N Sprinkle) and heat set.  The Love You Express Banner, also heat embossed with Sea Foam embossing powder was added on top of the crochet trim.

Your next stop on the hop is Archana .  If you ever get lost in the hop, you can always go back to the beginning, Die-Versions blog, for the complete order list.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way for your chance at that $100 prize package!
