Hopping with Cardmaker Magazine


     Today I am honored to be a part of the Cardmaker Magazine Blog Hop.  The hop is being sponsored by the fabulous Stamping Bella and the participants are showcasing lots of wonderful Bella stamps.
     For my card I've used Especially for you Petunia.  My card base is Recollections 110 lb. white cardstock.  My designer papers are from We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic collection.  I matted the large panel with Bazzill Bittersweet Chocolate and also cut the chevrons in the same with MFT-Dienamics Chevron dies.  The image tag was hand cut and hole punched with a Crop-a-dile Big Bite.  The flags and sentiment were created with a MFT Die-namics Sentiment strip that was trimmed on one end.  I added jute twine to tie the tag and button.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  The flower was covered with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen and the snail's shell was covered in Glossy Accents.


Copics Used:
Petunia E000, E00, E01, E02, E21, E93, R20, R22, R30, N7
chick Y06, TR21, Y17, Y38, YR68
snail E31, BG93, BG96
flower R22, R39, R46, Y19, YG11, G21, G94
grass YG03, YG95


     I used part of the sentiment on the flag banner on the front of the card and then masked it off and used the rest on the inside.  Both parts were stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.




     Stamping Bella is giving away a $25.00 Gift Certificate to one random commenter so make sure you make it to the last stop on the hop.  Of course we'd also love it if you'd leave some love for everyone along the way.  Here's the list of participants:
