Stampers Dream and Friends Blog Hop!

❀ ❀ Click HERE for my La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday Challenge blog post. ❀ ❀


Hi everyone and welcome to the Stampers Dream and Friends Blog Hop! Michelle, the Dream Team and I are super excited about all the special, talented friends that are hopping with us today! I'll have the list of hoppers below, but first let me share my card with you!


I created this shabby chic card using the gorgeous Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime papers and the beautiful JustRite Vintage Oval Labels Cling Mounted Stamp Set. I cut the stamped sentiment and frame out using my Spellbinders Labels 13 Nestabilities and popped the frame and sentiment up on boosters. All of the papers are edged using Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink. I can't get enough of the luscious  Kaiser craft Paper Blooms. The paper blooms I used on this card are from the "Honey" pack.  I took the Zva Creative Crystal Flourish and cut it in two pieces and placed them on either side of the frame to balance out the card. I just LOVE the little extra "something" the bling adds to a card! The trims are all by Maya Road but are currently out of stock (info/link included below.)

Here are more pics...
