Mega Sponsor Spring Blog Hop


Hello everyone!

If you're new to our blog, thanks for stopping by! If you're a regular follower, welcome back! We're so excited to be participating and sharing some fun projects with you! We have partnered with seventeen additional stamp and papercrafting companies for this Spring blog hop, giving away 18 prizes to 18 lucky winners! All the details for participating can be found at the end of this post. 

Spring has finally arrived here in the Pacific Northwest. As I'm writing this, the sun is shining and the grass and weeds are growing! It feels good to know summer is just around the corner.

We chose some products from Concord & 9th to create some wonderful cards for the Spring projects we'll be sharing today. We hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to get creative.
The Posie Fill-in stamp set is perfect for creating backgrounds using multiple colors. I used the MISTI stamping tool, and created numerous backgrounds in multiple colors, quickly. The MISTI allowed me to switch colors easily without having to line up stamps each time.

I used the backgrounds to create several cards, and have a couple left for some future projects.
I trimmed the background for the card above using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges from MFT Stamps and added "Thanks" from the Concord and 9th Fabulous Phrases die set.
I used the Wonky Stitches die from Avery Elle to trim this background. Added some ovals and another phrase from the Fabulous Phrases Die set from Concord and 9th.
One last card to share, and some backgrounds that I hope to make into cards soon.

Thank you again for stopping by and participating in the blog hop! Next on the blog hop list is
