Embellish Blog Hop!

Hello! Join me today along with Embellish Magazine for a blog hop filled with creativity, tips, inspiration, and prizes.

Hopefully you have just come from Mariana Grigsby's blog. If not make sure to start at the beginning with the Embellish blog.

Don't forget to leave comments on every blog. Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs. A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon.

Those are some rockin' prizes! So hop hop hop along! I highly suggest you check out Embellish's premiere issue too!

The contest will be open until Monday, 5/31 at 5pm EST. Winners will be announced Tuesday, June 1!

I heart bloomers. They are amazing. My favorite thing is to cut them up into individual rosettes and group them together like this. It's glue dot central under those flowers!
I had so much fun with sticky back canvas! I painted it turquoise, stamped these awesome Studio Calico stamps on it in brown and then "splattered" it with perfect pearls. I then threaded the top and bottom with twine, although those bloomers took over the bottom twine stitching! Haha! The card base has been stamped with a Hero Arts stamp in Versamark and dusted with perfect pearls too. I wanted this to feel like a fancy old carnival advert or something. Haha! That probably only makes sense in my head, but I had fun making this card! Thanks so much Embellish for letting us take on your awesome challenge again! :)

Now make sure to hop along to Michelle Woerner's blog for more turquoise, red, brown, kraft and twine fun!
