Loves Rubberstamps - Sensational Sunday Blog Hop!

Eeeek! I've some super exciting news to share with you today. I've been invited to join the Loves Rubberstamps Design Team and I couldn't be happier! I so love their challenges and Laura's fabulous store, so I'm tickled pink to be joining in tonight with my first post for the Loves Rubberstamps Sensational Sunday Blog Hop. So without further ado, let's see what all the Design Team have been up to. Here's the Hop lineup. Make sure you start at the beginning and leave some love for all the design team to have a chance at the fabulous Blog Hop Prize.
Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps weekly Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for your Inspiration. Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher! We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month from all the comments left on the design team blogs! Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments!

You should have arrived at my blog from Rebecca Billard. Don't you just love her poppies? That butterfly is stunning too! 


I've used a gorgeous Whimsy Stamps image by Crissy Armstrong called Crown of Daisies for my Blog Hop creation. It's such an enchanting image and this will be my little niece's birthday card later this year. So I'll tuck it away safely until that time. I've used Alcohol markers to colour the image and Memento Black Tuxedo to ink the image and sentiment. I created the blue sky by masking the image and using a stencil brush to add Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Not a cloud to be seen!


I used a gorgeous Heart Doily Border die from La La Land dies to create the lattice like edge and added Trailing Ivy from a Magnolia Doohickey die and some gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts blooms. I've used Cosmo DaisiesTulips and a Gardenia. The Birdcage die and the little Sentiment Tag are Magnolia Doohickey dies again. These three dies are from a beautiful collection of dies available exclusively through the Magnolia Doohickey Magazine. These ones are from the 3rd Volume 'Ooh La La' collection. I just love the little bird cage, it's enchanting. They're limited release and once they're gone, they're gone! So snap one up from Loves Rubberstamps while you can. 


Your next stop on the Hop will be Nick, who's cookin' up some goodness for ya'll! Be sure you stop by all the design teams blogs to be in with a chance of winning the $20 gift voucher to Loves Rubberstamps fabulous store. You just don't know where the 'Sweet Spot' will be! See you again soon with another crafty adventure. Enjoy the rest of the Hop! Hugs, Wends x
