Blog Hopping with Stamper's Dream



Welcome to this month's edition of the Stamper's Dream blog hop! If you have arrived here from sweet Miss Cindy's blog then you are in the right place, if not, please hop, skip and jump back to Michelle's blog to start your journey with us :)

Today I have two sweet little creations to show you and the first one is the card above. I must say that I adore this JustRite Stampers Birdhouses and Centers set so I have had a lot of fun playing with it! I paired up this stamp with some of this really pretty K&Co paper and die cut the leaves and hand made the ribbon flower to mimic some of the flowers in the stamp itself. The main image was water coloured with tombow markers and if you look really close then you will see that the flower centers have some rhinestone gems in them :)




The second project that I have to share is this cute little birdhouse that I made to coordinate with the card. This is a template that I printed from Nichole Heady's blog and fancied up with the JustRite Stampers You Inspire Me set. I added one of the filigree circles around the opening of the treat box and then embellished it with more rhinestones. I have added some Martha Stewart leaf punchies and some MFT rolled flower die cuts to add a little whimsy to this little goodie box.

Thanks so much for swinging by these parts today and now you are off to visit one of the newest members of the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen Team, Miss Theresa! Have fun and don't forget to leave a little lovin' on your travels :D
