My First Blog Hop!!!

I am very excited to announce, that I have been asked 
to be part of my first ever blog hop 
as a Designer!!!

Sorry about the odd colours but
blogger will not let me change it!!

I was asked by a friend of mine
from The Craft Barn, where we were both Tutors.
if I would be part of her showcase, for a new collection 
of fabulous stamps she has designed.

So I had to choose 2 of the stamps to use
for my cards or projects.

That was very difficult, as they are all stunning.

 She was invited to be a guest artist in the 
Paperbabe Stamps family and to celebrate 
they are having a little blog hop...

She is the very talented artist, Chris Dark and has designed 
a collection of beautiful Garden Fairies Stamps.

The Butterfly Catcher, Butterfly Emerges, 
Butterfly Fairy, and Musical fairy. 

They are a larger set and 
each includes a beautiful sentiment.

Just to let you know, Chris still does workshops 
at The Craft Barn. So check out when she is
there again in April, link HERE






To add extra fun to our blog hop... we are offering up a prize!

My first card is using 
The Butterfly Fairy.

I created the background with Distress Inks
and masks.
I also coloured her with Distress Inks.
Had to add Stickles too!


Her hair is actually yellow/gold but
looks a bit green in the photo!!
Possibly the addition of Stickles.


This next card is The Musical Fairy.
I coloured her with Copics Pens.


You can see how big these stamps are, as 
both of my cards are A5


I feel so lucky that Chris asked me to do this.
I am now the proud owner of these stunning stamps.

So enjoy the blog hop and good luck.
If I was you, I would comment on all of the blogs, 
to get more of a chance to win all 
4 sets of these beautiful stamps.
