Stampers Dream and Friends Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Stamper's Dream and Friends Blog Hop! We have some very special friends joining us today, and I couldn't be more excited! I will introduce them to you right after I show you my card.


The image I used today is My Favorite Things Pucker Up . I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. Her clothes and table were paper pieced. The rest of the image was colored with Tombow Markers .

The layer behind the main image was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels Fifteen Nestabilities . All designer paper is from the Kaisercraft Candy Lane 6 x 6 paper pad.





The border along the bottom was cut with the MFT Double Scallop Die-Namics die. The flower was made with the Rolled Daisy Die-Namics also by MFT.

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