The Craft's Meow April 2012 Blog Hop

***This is my second post for the day. Please scroll down for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.***


Hello! You made it to The Craft's Meow April 2012 Blog Hop! Welcome! Welcome! The design team and guest designers have a lot of wonderful cards and projects for you today. So let's have some fun.



The Craft's Meow
 
Blogger has been causing problems for some of our designers all week long so you may come across a few of our designer's blogs that do not appear updated with today's blog hop post. If that happens, please refer to the hop order at the end of my post or on The Craft's Meow Store Blog to continue on, but make sure you plan to check back on the other blogs because you'll need to leave a comment on each blog in order to win our BIG PRIZE!

If you just came from Jackie Rockwell's blog then you're right where you're supposed to be. If not you can head on over to the TCM blog to start there. Now remember, it's important because in order to win the ENTIRE April release sets you have to leave a comment on each designer's blog as well as the TCM blog.


Let's get to my project for the hop. My favorite set for this release is Vintage Rides. I know it's not my usual thing, but the images are just soooo cute!!! Nina did such a great job. I had so much fun using it, I think I'll be using it a lot more in the future!



I stamped this little scooter right on my card kraft card base and colored it with my Copic markers. Then I stamped the balloons as well. I cut a strip of patterned paper  and adhered it to the top portion of the card. I also die cut this strip of stars and sewed it over the patterned paper.


I stamped the balloons on some patterned papers as well and hand cut them. Then I adhered them over the first balloon image that I stamped. One is directly on the kraft card stock and the other raised with foam tape. 


I die cut the circle and the mat and stamped my sentiment on it. These are from Giddy Up, also by Nina. When I was done with my card I noticed that it seemed to lack something. So I took my Travel Time and stamped the sentiments several times on the kraft card stock.

That's all I have for you today. Just a few reminders...make sure to leave comments on ALL the DT and guest designers blogs to have a chance at the GRAND PRIZE. Also, you can have Giddy Up as a gift with a minimum purchase of $50

Before I go, here's the blog hop list.


Thanks for visiting today. I'll see you again soon! :) Happy shopping!
