OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop


Hi everyone! Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop! If you arrived here from Yolanda's blog, IMAGE.MAKE.SHARE., then you are in the right place but if you've just happened along or are popping in for a visit you will want to grab your favorite beverage then head on over to the OWH Stars & Stamps blog so you can start from the beginning.  The theme of this weekends bloghop is "Miss You" cards.


The image featured on today's card is the Seeing Your Face rubber stamp by Penny Black. My card base is Basic Grey paired with patterned paper from Frances Meyer. The shadow layer is Cameo Coral embossed using the Herringbone Embossing Folder. To embellish the card I added white ribbon, a felt flower layered with Cameo Coral punched out using the Spring Bouquet Flower Punch and finished with a silver rhinestone. I added some more rhinestones along the image. The miss you sentiment is a digital tag by Scrapdictive.


The next stop on this bloghop is the fabulously talented Paula, I'm sure you will love her creative projects as much as I do. So without further ado, hop on over to her blog, CUT N PASTE MEMORIES, and enjoy the rest of the blog hop.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

  • Stamps: Seeing Your Face (Penny Black) and Miss You Ticket (Scrapdictive)
  • Paper: Basic Grey, Cameo Coral, Flourishes White, Patterned Paper (Frances Meyer)
