Time To Hop To It!!!

Hey....welcome to DAY THREE!!! Of the Shabby Chic Stamp Co. hop!!
Yes, I'm just adding projects as we go...thought it would be fun! So
today's entries...I got the NEW RELEASE sets in the mail yesterday!!
I had the card design laid out for that pink one above, in my head as
soon as I saw the set It's THE most adorable set!! I used
CM circle punches for all the punch work ("notched out" the larger
white piece, then punched the circles with the "peek a boo" windows to
see the baby footprints). I used the same type circle with the
"welcome little one" sentiment as a mask when I stamped the little
baby footprints (I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink for all the stamping).

A sweet soft card for a new is this one....

Couldn't leave the boys out, now could I?? I used the build a baby set...
OMGSH just love these stamps!! Both sentiments are from the Sweet
Pea stamp set. Used a MS punch, some of the new chocolate/blue trendy
twine, and kaiserkraft rhinestones. The organza is Offray.

Now remember this is a hop.....check out the other projects below, and
make sure you stop by Shabby Chic, and all the stops, so you can get
a chance at winning!! And now yesterday's post.....

As are some more goodies! Yep...this set is just
awesome! And the new release....EVEN BETTER! Make sure to

These tags needed a I made this tin to hold them....

The paper is all Echo Park (Style Essentials and a sprinkling of
Victoria Gardens)....the tin was a MM flower tin I saved (I save
all my packaging....never know when inspiration will

I used alcohol inks (citrus, watermelon and sunshine yellow)
to color the tin, then made the belly band with the EP....a MS punch,
a Spellbinders die, CM punch for the circles in the center....that little
"chickadee" is a sweet stamp from the "Bunny Love" collection!

So happy Saturday....hope you get a chance to get inky....and now
