Are you having fun hopping along with us?

If you have come from MELISSA's site then you are on the right path. When you are done browsing here, hop on over to your next stop at HELEN's site.

Our featured product for this month's hop are the newest released My Reflections Level 2 Paper Packets found in the front of the catalog. There are 4 new paper packs released with each catalog PLUS one bonus CREATIVE BASICS packet. The Creative Basics packet coordinates with one of the other new packs but it comes with just 2 patterns and a spool of ribbon for creating some bulk projects.

My PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT is on the Creative Basics Veranda Packet. I chose to also use one of the workshop cutting guides out of WISHES Card Confidence Program. The cutting diagram will create 20 cards, 2 of each design. I have pictured here just 4 of the designs with more to come.

I added in Vineyard Berry and Cocoa Cardstock to complement the VERANDA Creative Basics Packet.

I did my stamping with the Endless Friendship stamp set -- it debuted with the Bella Paper Packet last year but is also in the 2010 Spring Catalog on page 46. I accented some with the Creme Brulee Ribbon that came with the Creative Basics paper Packet and the others with Colonial White Mini-Medley Accents.

I used a few techniques --
  • 2 step stamping with stamp rolling -- Stamp 2nd generation image onto project, Roll the stamp in the same ink and stamp over first image.
  • I stamped my flowers, cut them out, then pinched the petals to give them dimension.
  • Liquid Glass accent on the "daisy" like flower

Don't forget to hop on over to HELEN's site to see what she has in store for you!
