Stamper's Dream & Friends Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Stamper's Dream & Friends Blog Hop! I'm super excited about all the very special friends that are hopping with me and The Dream Team today! Right after I tell you about my card I'm going to introduce them.

For today's card I used an adorable Penny Black cling mounted stamp called Dreaming Geraniums . Isn't that napping bunny the sweetest thing? I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then colored with Tombow Markers . I used a damp paint brush to blend the colors. The edges were distressed with Tea Dye Distress Ink .

The sentiment is Northwood's Classic Easter Blessings . I stamped it then cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels One Nestabilities .

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious paper pad. I used a Webster's Pages Rose & Vintage Pearl Sparkler in the center of my bow, and added a Heart Pin .


These are the Tombow Markers I used to color. You can click on the image to enlarge it so you can see the numbers a little better.

The blog hop list for today is listed below. Aren't there some fabulous designers here? Please be sure to leave a comment for each and every one of them when you visit their blog post today. TWO have hidden blog candy, and you have to comment on their blog post for a chance to win!
