inspired by stamping & die-versions blog hop


hello scrappy friends! 

and welcome to the INSPIRED by STAMPING and DIE-VERSIONS blog hop!!!

twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. YAY!!! 

INSPIRED by STAMPING, which designs and manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters, has teamed up with DIE-VERSIONS, makers of low profile metal dies, which work with virtually every machine out there and cut through most materials, to create this special eye candy of SPRING themed projects!!!

one lucky "hopper" will get a total prize package of $100 in gift certificates, a $50 gift certificate from INSPIRED by STAMPING and DIE-VERSIONS, so you can stock up on some awesome products both of these companies have to offer.

for your chance to win the grand prize, visit all of the participating blogs, leaving a comment at each, then leave a comment telling us what you like the most about SPRING at the INSPIRED by STAMPING blog.

all comments entered between now and april 28th at 10pm (pacific time) will be eligible for the grand prize.

and here is what i created with the amazing products from both companies:





i used the "it's your birthday" stamp set and brown ink to create the banners.


i fussy cut a lot of different elements from the pattern papers to decorate my card. 


for my sentiment i used pattern paper and the "it's your birthday" stamp set for the title banner.
i added pink mulberry roses and scallop crochet trim to finish off my card.
