Sweet Pea Stamps Customer Blog Hop

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful day. I have a lot to share with you today so I'll keep my chit chat short. As you know, I adore Sweet Pea Stamps. The company is celebrating its one year anniversary and today, Lynette, the owner of Sweet Pea Stamps, has invited all of her customers to join in a blog hop to celebrate. Our challenge was to create a birthday or anniversary card using Sweet Pea stamps. I am so excited to share my cards with you. I created two birthday cards using the same layout, but different papers and images.

For my first card, I just had to ink up this brand new image called Blue Rose Tattoo. I colored the image with copics (RV 21, 23, 25, E00, E01, E11, B000, B02, G24, G28, E33, E35, E37). Next, I created my card base from SU cardstock. The design paper is from K & Co. I used my SU ticket corner punch on all corners and added pearls (from AC Moore). I tied the double looped bow with my awesome Bow Easy. I then added some Primas and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for a finishing touch. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps and I think it makes a perfect birthday card greeting. What do you think?

For my second card today, I inked up this gorgeous image called Enchanted Gold. I colored the image with copics (R81, R83, R85, G24, G28, E33, E35, E37, E00, E01, E11). I then inked around the image with SU's Pretty in Pink ink. Next, I created my card base out of SU cardstock. The design paper is from K&Co. I again used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls. I also used my Martha Stewart edge punch on the top panel of design paper. Finally, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Thank you so much Lynette for creating such fun and magical stamps. These stamps are so "me" and it is truly a joy to work with them. Thank you to all my friends who stop by my blog every day. Your encouragement means the world to me. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Big Hugs, Christine

Christine, these are both so beautiful!! I have colored and started a card with the second image you used.. but since I am making a card and giving away blog candy all 5 days this week I had to set it aside!!
I ordered a WHOLE BUNCH of flowers from Wild Orchird Crafts, but have to wait until their air flights start back up again!! I can't wait!!
Thank you for joining us for our 1 year celebration and for always supporting Sweet Pea Stamps business!!

I haven't forgot about your stamped images!!! I am just so far behind and I am just stretched as far as I can be stretched. Plus with me getting sick and now my 2 litte ones are sick.. there just isn't enough time in a day. And since you have been so patient with me and my slowness, I will send you a little extra something!!
