The DT are holding a blog hop to celebrate this month's release.  The hop starts today (Wednesday April 23rd at 8.00AM EDT) and ends on Sunday April 27th at 12:00PM EDT.

I chose to work with the Happy Hello Die and Happy Hello stamp set for my card today.  I can not tell you how much I LOVE word dies!  I wanted this word die to shine so I diecut and layered several "hello" diecuts together and then sprayed it with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Teal.  

Hello

Adding a few drops of color and some random stars stamped with GOLD Delicata finished this off.  Just look at that shimmer and glitz!  <3 p="">

Stop and Go Blog Hop!


***If you are here for the new Clearly Whimsy Stamps release post, please scroll down!***

Welcome to the Stop and Go Blog Hop featuring inspiration using the Stop and Go stamp set designed by Miriam Prantner for Neat & Tangled stamps!  You should have arrived from Alexandra's blog to start the hop.

I wanted to do something a bit diffferent for "coloring" my stoplight.  I used some cheap watercolors to paint the colors onto some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock.  This paper is the bomb!  I've used the smooth surface but there is also a textured side too!

Stop and Go1

After my cardstock dried, I stamped my stoplight image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  And just because......I splattered red across my image and I couldn't resist adding some Glossy Accents to my little heart die cut with the Mini Hearts Die from Simon Says Stamp.

Stop and Go2


Now it's time to check out the fabulous ladies that join me in this blog hop today:

Amy---->>you are here!

Now there can't be a blog hop with prizes, right?  You have TWO chances to win a Stop and Go of your own!  So make sure you comment not only over at the Neat & Tangled blog but on all the blogs in the hop!  Comments will close Saturday, April 26th and winners will be posted on Monday, April 28th.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Cheiron's blog!  Enjoy the hop!

Clearly Whimsy Stamps: Day 1

Hop on over to the Whimsy blog to take a peek at t he new products. 

 For my card, I used the Coffee Break stamps and dies.  I was inspired by a post by Maile Belles for my divided panels layout......you can check out her post HERE.  This was a fun way to break up the stamped paper to add in a sentiment!

My coffee cup was die cut with the coordinating dies.  My cozy was stamped and paper pieced over my cup and a heart was added for dimension.  I coated the heart with Glossy Accents and sprinkled some charcoal gray glitter while it was wet.

A "note" of thanks


Quick post here today since my kids are out of school for Good Friday.  
I made up these 3x3 mini "notes" using the Fruit Trio die set from Whimsy Stamps......I seriously think that's the cutest strawberry die I've seen! 

Thank you notes

I haven't played along with the girls over at the CASology in awhile so I thought I'd link this up there!  This week their cue card is "NOTE".  


Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
