Clear Scraps + Stampendous =

one fabulous blog hop...all week long!!!

Welcome to the Clear Scraps & Stampendous Blog Hop!

This week, all week long we will be featuring amazing projects from Clear Scraps & Stampendous

We have paired up with these amazing stamps to create inspiring projects. 

Today I am sharing a card with you featuring the Send it Clear Belgrave card from Clear Scraps and the Friendly Phrases (SSC1141) Stamp Set from Stampendous.

This is the card when it is closed and what it would look when taken out of the envelope (P.S. Did you know that Clear Scraps provides a CLEAR mailable envelope with each of these cards?! Cool huh?!)

Here is the sentiment and the leaves stamped on the front.

I used a printed transparency (from the Simple Stories Fabulous line) for the front flaps and embellished it with some jewels and a little wooden embellishment from Studio Calico.

Here is card opened, another circle with the leaves stamped on it, I left the rest blank for the sender to add their own sentiment or signature.

Make sure to check out these other blogs today for more fabulous projects and inspiration! (Click on the name to be taken to their blog)

Be sure to check back every single day for your chance to win and a chance to see the full potential of Stampendous Stamps and Clear Scraps acrylics!

Thanks for hopping by and have a great Monday!

Summer Fresh Cards

Hi everyone! Today I have a couple of cards from my blog post on the Simple Stories blog last week. I started off with the new Summer Fresh line. I've mentioned it before, but this line is so fresh and so fun. A touch of vintage, a touch of shabby chic, and a touch of all of the colors that yell 'summer'!

First up is card that was made based around one of the transparency pieces. Adhered it to the card front with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. Scor Tape was used for the perfect lines of glitter around the edges.

This next one uses that adorable clothes line sticker. I've been waiting to use this for a while with that cute sentiment.

This one is based on a "gold medal" ribbon...I just added a new center piece to it to make it match what I wanted my card to say.

This next card I did for the Clear Scraps blog. The base for this one is made from a 12x12" acrylic sheet.

Glad you all stopped by today!
