On The Corner Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  I'm so excited because today Danielle at Neat & Tangled and a bunch of my crafty friends and I are holding a blog hop featuring my On the Corner stamp set.

On the Corner has been out of stock for several weeks, but expect to see it back on the shelf at Neat & Tangled very soon, like by the end of the week soon.

The hop starts at Neat & Tangled, so if you are just starting here you'll want to make sure to swing back to N&T to see what Danielle created.

Of course there are prizes.  Danielle and I are both offering up an On the Corner set, so that's two chances to win.  Winners will be randomly chosen from comments left on each of the hop stops.  Comments close on Saturday, and winners will be posted Monday.

There were no rules for the hop, just make something amazing, and I just know that these ladies are going to knock it out of the park!

For my card I wanted something very bold and graphic with an almost comic book type styling.  I used one of my Crafter's Workshop stencils to create that bold print piece.  First I blended ink onto some white cardstock and then I placed the stencil over top and used a sponge dauber to add the black.



The sentiment makes me giggle a little.  I kind of love this sentiment pairing and I'm pretty sure we all know someone this card would be perfect for.

I decided to make a second card with one of the journaling cards I created during release week.

Just a very CAS design.  The image was stamped in Versamark and colored with distress inks and a water brush, and I used Lawn Fawn alpha dies, but Thickers would be another great way to go on something like this.

Thanks so much for coming by!  Your next stop is Elena, and here's the hop order in case you get turned around.

  37. I have a "first edition" of your stamp set, but have yet to ink it up... One of the best parts of that stamp set is all the possibilities for creating your own phrase--freakin' or otherwise. Thanks for all the inspiration on this hop!

    use that card for. LOL
