It's Blog Hoppin' Time!!

Well, here we go again!  We're hoppin' blogs!  There aren't very many of us this time but the creativity is flowin'!  Are you ready?  This hop is sponsored by Paper Wings where you can view cool projects using only TAC stamps!


I chose to use Swirled Spring Life, a level A set. I thought it was the perfect set to use with the designer paper I printed!  (Just check the left sidebar for a link to the different papers you can print for your personal use.)
I printed the designs on Stardust cardstock and also used it for everything on this card.  The flower is stamped within a Super Jumbo Scallop Oval punched piece.


I colored the bird and flower with the following Copic markers: R81, R01, and  G82. I used a black glitter pen on the bird's beak and dots and the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the wings and tail. The oval is edged with Pink Petunia Versamagic ink and the images are stamped with Memories Tuxedo Black ink. The bird is raised with foam mounting tape which really makes it pop....  (yeah, I'm punning here.) Oh, I used the Fiskars Treading Water border punch on the striped piece of cardstock.

Please leave a comment as to what you think of my card then hop to the following angels' blogs for more inspiration.

Carol, your card is beautiful! This set is on my wish list for the next order. I just love the look it reminds me of stained glass designs.
