TCM Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us! And welcome to TCM's FIRST birthday celebration blog hop! 
If you are just joining me, and you would like to hop with us, head back to the TCM blog for the full list of blogs on this hop!
Otherwise, you should be arriving here from Amy Wanford's blog :) 

This month's stamps have been some of my favourite to date. From all the beautiful and soft spring images, to the lovely sentiment sets, like Mother & Father, I've enjoyed using these stamps so much! 

For today's card, I've combined tree of my fave images from three different sets, 'Beautiful Spring', 'Mother & Father', and 'Cherished'.


The flower is pieced from the 'Cherished' set and the leaves from the 'Beautiful Spring' set.
The lovely sentiment is from the 'Mother & Father' set. 


The embossed portions on this card, are from this Tim Holtz design. I've inked up the folders to create a 'letterpress' effect, which I love so much.


To piece the flowers together, I stamped the lovely flower image in two different colours, and cut out several flowers from the green image. I layered the green image over the blue, revealing a few different-colored flowers underneath! Super easy! I encourage you to play with your stamps and see what you can create with a bit of colour and a few snips here and there :)

Now, let's move onto the fun stuff!
Unlike our preview days, in order to increase your chances of winning the six beautiful stamp sets we've featured in this release,
simply leave a comment on each stop along the hop!

Next up on the hop is Amy Kolling - our fabulous guest designer!

Today concludes our Birthday Bash festivities! Happy Birthday TCM!!!!


And happy hopping to you!
