Welcome Bunny Hoppers!!!!!

I just love it when we do these! The reason for this hop has me super excited! Bo bunny is now going to be using a new guest designer every month...how cool is that. By the time you all have worked your way through the hop you will find out who our new guest designer will be for the month of April.

First, a few little cards to share with you. I used the new Flower Power line for these. Such happy, bright and cheerful colors. My cards don't really show it, but it has a fun hippy vibe to it too. However, my goal here was to show you all that you it is so versatile and can easily be used without going in that direction.

All products used on these are from the Flower Power line except the buttons are from my own stash. Even the cute little hello stamp.


On this one I cut the stars with my Spellbinder dies and then used a Papertrey Ink impression plate on the large striped star and then sanded the raised areas.





On this one I used the backside of the new turquoise double dot paper and ran it through the Impression plate again to get those debossed areas and sanded the raised areas as well. Placed the Papertrey Ink flower dies where I wanted the flowers to be cut and ran it through my Cuttlebug. When I attached that piece of paper on top of the striped paper I used pop dots to raise it up a bit.




This one used the flowers that I die cut out of the paper above.



A GIVE AWAY!!!! Those of you that leave a comment will be eligible to receive a sheet of adhesive embellishments hand made by me. They will be just like the flowers and stars used above so that you could make your own similar cards or they would look great on a layout! Here is a photo of them. Sorry for the poor lighting on it...late at night when I took the pic.


Next your clue......our April guest designer's daughter's favorite game to play is Mancala....do any of you know who it is?

Now on to Patti's blog for your next stop on the hop and another clue!!!!

Here's your link

Hope have a great time hoppin' on by!
