Here, the sweet smelling cool rain gently wets the ground so the seeds poke their heads out and become beautiful flowers.
If you happened to stumble upon the hop here by chance, and want to start from the beginning, it all starts with Lissa at www.somanycrafts.com. Starting here will take you through the entire hop of inspiration.
Here is the sweet card I made for this Hop:
For this card, I used a sweet digi-image that I colored using
Prisma colored pencils (with turpentine for softening) and
Copic markers. I added Stickles to represent the rain and
water. The clouds were cut using dies; they were embossed
with Cuttlebug swirls folder. I wrapped the card in Honeydew-
colored twine from The Twinery (purchased from Ginger Snap
Scraps, a new* online store by my friend Cori), and I made the
Cutie wrapped flower having cut it using a Cheery Lynn Designs
die I purchased from Happy Scrappy. The banner was hand-cut
and stamped with a sentiment from Pink By Design's "Enjoy
the Journey" set. The lilac background paper is from a 6x6"
stack by Lawn Fawn (from Ginger Snap Scraps, as well).
*P.S. Ginger Snap Scraps is having a Grand Opening special
through April 8 -- Free shipping on orders over $25, anywhere in the U.S. and Canada!
|This sweet Sizzix die is one of my favorites.|
I use it several times a year -- "Bee Mine" at
Valentine's Day, or a general "You're Bee-Ootiful" card.
I attach it to an Action Wobble for extra fun!
