ABC’s Blog Hop ~ D

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog hop! ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “D”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “D” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from DIANA SANDERS Blog then you are in the right place.

Today for my “D” element I have choose DAFFODILS.  I love the new stamp set A Little Note A1171.  You can see it featured on page 23 of the Seasonal Expressions One.  I so love the card displayed on that page.  I have been meaning to design my own cards for some time so this was the perfect excuses.  I actually designed three cards using this stamp set.

A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~

This one was simple just using Topiary and Canary cardstock to double frame the Daffodils and then putting on Kraft cardstock.  I used the Yellow diamond washi tape on White Daisy cardstock then split it down the center.

Blushed ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this card I though the Brushed paper pack would coordinate wonderfully with this stamp set.  I used the topiary washi as accent.

Hopscotch ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~catscrapbooking.comThis is my favorite!   I know I have said this so many times but I absolutely love the Hopscotch paper pack and knew it would be great for this card.   I used Glacier to back the stamped White Daisy cardstock with Flaxen Extra Thick Twine to accent the design.

Supplies used for all cards:

  • Paper Packs ~ Hopscotch X7194B, Brushed X7190B
  • Cardstock ~ Glaicer, Canary, Topary, White Daisy and Kraft
  • ShinHan Markers ~ Pastel Green Z2459, Sap Green Z2463, Golden Yellow Z2452, and Maragold Z2457
  • Embellishments ~ Flaxen Extra Thick Twine Z3036. Junebug Puffies Z3038, Honey Triangles Washi Z1931 and Topiary Stripe Washi Z2002

I had a hard time deciding what to start with as there are so many cool new items which will be great for Valentines, Spring and any time of year for that matter.  I decided on using the Hopscotch paper pack to complete a layout.  I really love this paper pack so be forewarned  as you will be seeing a lot of it from me 🙂
Hopscotch Layout  ~
I wanted to crate a bit of interest between the glacier cardstock base and the blue diamond pattern paper.  I decided to sand the edges but since the core of the paper is white and this paper pack features Colonial White I had to come up with a solution.  I decided to come back over the edges with the Colonial White ink and it really created a neat effect which is hard to see in these photos.

One of the other items I really love are the Hopscotch assortment and the new Junebug Puffies which you an see in this photo.

  • Ink ~ Colonial White
  • Embellishments ~ Hopscotch assortments Z3016 , Junebug Puffies Z3038 and buttons from stash
