BLOG HOP DAY!!

Hooray!! You did it! You made it to the end!
I'm so glad you stuck with it because I've got the candy :o)

Here are the final cards in the hop,
the blog candy info can be found at the bottom of this post!



(this is my favorite card out of the bunch. I love Mrs. Poose!)
Mrs. Poose is so spoiled. Look at her with her fancy collar!






Flowers in the vase:
Flower soft in colors christmas green, shamrock, bright pink, poppy red, baby pink.

card inside:
I made the card above and decorated the chandelier with clear austrian crystals.
Then I decided I wanted to see what it looked like colored crystals and made this
card using the smaller chandelier.

Austrian crystal chandelier accents.

Idea to note: use the oval frame as a mirror and reflect another image.

Whew...I got to the end safely. Though I had to jump over some blogs that weren't posted yet. Smart thinking to list all of the designers' blogs...

Oh boy...now I gotta get the frames and the small chandelier and the flowers... haha...

I love what you did with the colors. So soft and lovely. Great use of rhinestones everywhere! Love the bling!

Fancy collars and bling has never looked better! Just awesome work!

This was my first blog hop and I really enjoyed seeing ALL the wonderful styles that each of you have- I love diversity and y'all really brought it!

Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful creations!

Michelle said...

You have an amazing group of creative and talented designers. It's so much fun to go through their blogs and see what they came up with for their cards. Love all the scenes that can be made with these stamps and the bling that can be added to the chandelier. Great idea to have flowers reflecting in the oval frame as a mirror. :)

Kim Williams said...

I had so much fun checking out everyone's blogs! Y'all did a great job with the new set...I hope I get a chance to play with it very soon myself.

Thanks for sharing your creativity (to all the design team).

Tanya Rudd said...

I love the toile paper used for the picture in the first card. The bird and cage are cute, and tie into the card perfectly.

This was such a fun way to spend a lunch hour. I can go home and use the inspiration I got from hopping about to make cards tonight.

Enjoy the day

What a fun hop! I loved seeing everyone's ideas. Irene's family pictures of Yapples cracked me up and I love the ideas of using brads for the clock hands too.

I was hooked on these stamps from the first blog, I love all of the fun, zany cards and I have to give lots of kudos to all of you for the excellent paper piecing and layering of the home decor stamps. I hope I can do as well with them!

Ink-Pattie said...

I really enjoyed the blog hop, visiting every blog! My favorite images are the cat, especially when she gets into trouble, the chandelier with crystals, and the little frames with other Doodle creatures in them (especially the one who looks like he has a tree growing out of his head). Adorable! With each new release blog hop, I am getting closer and closer to ordering the whole line...

As I went to each blog, I found that the stamps grew on me. I think I love the chandelier the most. I can think of a lot of applications for that one. I like the other images as well. The designers were great and had awesome ideas. TFS.

Wow, I totally enjoyed this blog hop! All the cards were amazing and it was nice to see how you can make different cards with the same stamp set. Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this candy as I just LOVE these stamps!

Enfys said...

I have really enjoyed this blog hop and seeing the diversity of the DT work, just fabulous. I adore the King charles spaniel stamp, we used to have two, called Tosh and Scampi, and they looked just like this one - rather snooty, as if they felt they were superior to us, which they probably were!
Thanks for the fun
Enfys
