Hello everyone! 
Cheryl here.
Thanks for coming by for the blog hop for FBStamps newest release. I know you'll love all the projects you see. So lets get started, shall we?

I stamped out the pansy images and heat embossed with platinum embossing powder. I pulled out some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to do my coloring. I then fussy cut them out. Not hard to do all.
I found some patterned paper in my stash and cut a background using a Kat Scrappiness die. I then cut a basket using a Gina Marie die. Love this die!!! It's in two pieces and you do the old time paper weaving to get this basket look. I added foam to the backs of the flowers and arranged as I liked them.

I stamped the sentiment in same green as the card base and embossed with white embossing powder. Added foam tape to the back for added dimension.
Picked out some sequins from my stash and used Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. Found a bit of twine that matched and tied a bow on the handle.

Hope you're enjoying the hop! I'm certain you're finding lots of inspiration.  

Happy Crafting!

So, on to my second post for the hop.

This little girl is so adorable! So...I stamped her out on some patterned paper. I then fussy cut the dress bottom and the bodice area. I had already stamped her on a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper. I glued the dress parts into place. I then used my Distress markers to color the remaining areas.

I did the same thing with the umbrella. I added some liquid glue behind her head and secured in place.
I used a die from Pretty Pink Posh and cut it from the same white watercolor paper and another one from Bristol smooth paper. I used my Distress Oxide ink and blended the inner part. I spritzed with a bit of water and blotted it off. Gives a nice spattered look. I added it back into the frame and taped in place on the back side.

I stamped out the sentiment on a tiny flag banner and added it with foam tape as well. I pulled out my Viva Decor Glass Effect Gel in Crystal Clear and scattered rain drops all around on the background.
I also took a fine tipped glue pen and applied it around her hem, the trim, and her hair bow. Popped her up on foam tape and attached to the card front. 

You next stop on the hop is:
Enjoy the hop and I hope you get a lot of fun ideas. Leave your comments on each blog, you might win!
