Hello there and welcome to the Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Opening Blog Hop! It's a big one so settle in and enjoy the projects! Leave comments for chances to win some of these cute stamps sets for yourself. I am so happy for Nicole for getting this great stamp company started, she draws just the cutest images! She has also set up lots of places to follow all things Sweet Stamp Shop in addition to the blog and the shop itself...just take a look at the You Tube channel, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr pages, wow!!!
So before I get to the rest of the announcements and instructions, I would love to share the card I made for the hop. I used the new set Scootin' By which a fun collection of images with the main image being a cute scooter. I chose to use a few of the "supporting" images to create a little scene perfect for a birthday card. I used the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist paper (again;)) to paper piece the balloons and for the strip on the bottom edge, it is just so cute. I stamped the fun whimsical clouds and trimmed them out before adhering them to the sky type background I created. My favorite part though is the sun rays I created behind the main image using the road lines included in the set, I just love how it turned out.
