Pink & Main and Pear Blossom Press Collaboration

 


Hey friends, and welcome to my blog!  I'm so excited to be joining both Pear Blossom Press and Pink & Main in a collaboration!  I made a super fun and super easy light up card using products from both of these wonderful companies.

I have a video on my YouTube Channel to share with you showing you exactly how I made this card.



I love that it looks like a marquee, and it was an absolute blast to make.  I want to make all of the cards light up cards, lol.


And here's the inside, because if you know me at all, I really like to finish off those insides ;)

Thank you for hopping along with us for the Pink and Main & Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop!  Now be sure to hop along and check out everyone's creations, because you are sure to be quite inspired!

Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs products, and there is a prize up for grabs, too!



I decided to use these Heffy Doodle products: Sweet Stuff stamp & die, Bold Banner Sentiments stamp & die, the Stitched Slimline Trio dies, and the Slimline Pull Tabs dies. I paired all of that up with these Time for Tea Designs products: Hooray A6 Panel & Sentiment dies along with the Bearing Gifts stamps & dies.


Making slimline cards is so much fun when you have lots of great images to fill up that space, and the Hooray die was just perfect to place right in the middle.  I even had plenty of images left to decorate the inside of my card as well.


I even have a video of my process if you'd like to see it here on my blog, or you can see it HERE on my YouTube Channel.



PRIZES AND GIVEAWAY INFO

Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs will each be giving away a 25£ to their respective stores.
Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on July 28th on the Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs blogs. So make sure that you are commenting on all of the blogs along the way!

Heffy Doodle & Studio Katia Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia products, and there is a prize up for grabs, too!


I paired up the Otter Side stamps and dies, Wave to Me Stencil, and the Numicon Stencil from Heffy Doodle with the Dotted Shaker Tag 1 die, the Slider Tag die, and the Sapphire Crystals from Studio Katia.

I sponged some color onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock, and used both stencils on top for a fun layered look.
Both tag dies pieces were cut using the sponged background, and I pieced things together.  These were sooooo easy to make.
I absolutely love how well the stamp and dies go with those gorgeous crystals!  I have a video of the whole process if you'd like to see how these fun little tags came together :)


PRIZES AND GIVEAWAY INFO

Heffy Doodle will be giving away a  25£ CG and Studio Katia a  25$ CG to their stores.
Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on July 7th  on the Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia blogs.

HAI Supply & Pear Blossom Press Collaboration


Welcome to a collaboration blog hop for HAI Supply and Pear Blossom Press!  I'm so excited to be hopping along with some amazing talent and these wonderful products.  Let's get right into my card.


I decided to use one of the beautiful papers from the Japanese Handmade Washi Paper Set 1.  If you haven't seen them, they are all absolutely gorgeous!  I have an unboxing video where I show each of the papers if you'd like to take a look HERE.  I stamped out the sweet little images from the Heffy Doodle stamp set called Absotoothly Awesome, because I knew they would be perfect for the EZ-Light from Pear Blossom Press.
