Just leave each designer a comment along your way and end at the Inspired By Stamping blog. There is a chance to win a fabulous prize at the end of this crafty hop.
For my first card I used a technique I have been wanting to try. Die cutting the die and background paper then putting them back together so it is one flat piece for the card base. (I know there is a name for it but can't think of it right now! lol) Anyway, I love the effect it gives the card.
I have used the new For You Express Banner die from Die-Vesions along with Vintage Floral paper and Elegant Flowers from IBS.
For my second card I have used a background die from Die-Versions and decided to leave some of the cutouts in so the bottom would be solid. Love how the yellow behind the black die cut makes the bloom from Summer Flowers pop!! The sentiment is from the Everyday Greetings set.
Your next stop on the hop is Vicki's blog and if you ever get lost in the hop you can always go to the Die-Versions blog for the complete order list.
