Scraps Blog Hop, Final stop, day 1

Welcome to the Scraps Blog Hop… You’re at the last stop in the hop! Woo Hoo you made it!  Hopefully you got lots of inspiration!!!  You should have come from Nancy at http://blog.fancywithnancy.com​  If you didn’t come from Nancy, be sure to scroll up to the previous post at the start!
Be sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments, as there will be a grand prize, a $50 credit to the Designs on Cloud 9 store,http://www.designsoncloud9.com/ sponsored by Michelle of Designs on Cloud 9. To win the grand prize, you must comment on and become a follower of all the blogs. 
Be sure to come back both days to increase your chances of winning!
So I know it says Lisa, but it’s me, Jennifer, filling in…  So you have to see another one of my projects 🙂
So here’s what I started with (more or less)
These were scraps from a banner I had made for my Grandma’s 90th birthday party… I had lots of bright green letters (but no letters from Happy Birthday) and some odd shaped pieces of very brightly colored paper… I know it’s hard to believe from this but the banner was super cute!

And here’s what I made with it:
I think this would be a great card for a text-er – U R A star!  
And in case you can’t figure it out, the inside tells you the same thing, in words!

I’m not going to mention the blog candy again, since you’ve already seen that at the first stop!
Actually, this is a late addition to the post…  Lisa submitted a card for me…  Lisa’s an awesome designer, and if you have the Crafty Card Gallery, you’ve seen this card…
Lisa used Tim Holtz ink and torn scraps on this card for her Husband…
 Remember, if you want to be eligible to win the $50 grand prize in credit to http://www.designsoncloud9.com, you need to follow all of the blogs & leave a comment on each…
This is your final stop… Go tell your friends what a great hop this was!  đź™‚

If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning with Lisa: http://www.honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/ and hop along with us.We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with celebrating freedom and the 4th of July theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by Lisa from Honeybearz Designs and she is the first blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the ladies in the hop also.
Today is the last day of the hop. Lisa from Honeybearz Designs will be picking the grand prize winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.

Today’s the last day – hope you had a chance to see all my cards!
So here’s my card.. It was really simple except for one thing….
All of the paper I had, and the letters are chipboard that I have had for AGES.. I’ve been cleaning my scrap room SLOWLY and putting everything on a shoe rack (will post photos later) and have founds some things I didn’t know I had!  I colored the letters with copics, except the S – first I did it yellow, didn’t like it, then tried to use a white gel pen (didn’t work) and then used the perfect pearls (didn’t work) and then I found some white acrylic paint in my stash – that worked… I used some of my twine (finally) and some gems that I had bought for this hop a while ago… and also the cool gold buttons – I love them – bought them for Christmas & had leftovers!  So this card used a lot of stuff I had hanging around – and if the white hadn’t been such a problem, it would’ve been a 10 minute or less card!

 

A row of star stickers on the inside… 🙂

Be sure to come back everyday between July 1st and July 4th because all blogs in this hop will post a new project each day. Lisa from Honeybearz Designs will be picking the grand prize winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.

So here’s my card….

All the cardstock is stuff I had on hand.  I had intended to send this card to OWH, but I realize with the glitter paper it won’t work.. So I may substitute it out… (but I do like the card with the paper, so I may just use it for a birthday card!)
The celebrate sticker is off a page of random stickers, and the star stickers are pretty cool – They’re called Gold 3D Stars Dazzles from Paper Wishes.  Not an ad but just wanted to share a cool find.  The stickers pop up – see this photo…
No cool inside to this card, just white…. so no photo…

Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop Day 1 – July 1, 2011

Welcome to the Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop. 

This blog hop runs from July 1st through July 4th. If you are coming from April at http://www.curlsngrins.blogspot.com you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning with Lisa: http://www.honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/ and hop along with us.We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators.

Here’s my card:
So it’s doing double duty – I am a member of the Vintage Heartfelt Designs Design Team and we were having a challenge to do a vintage 4th of July card.  So I am using this card for both.  Be sure to check out the design team if you like vintage cards!  There are some great designers!  And it’s also my hop card!  So now I only have 1 more card to make for the weekend (I already have 2 others done)
Unfortunately, one of my printers has decided it’s a celebrity & doesn’t want to be recognized, and the other one was having issues too… So this is the best I could get on short notice (because I of course waited till the last minute)…  So I apologize for the lack of clarity in the image..
The paper is from a stack I had, I cut out the united we stand and the flag and pop dotted them to give it some dimension and then used some twine & some K&Company puffy stickers

That’s my card.. of course you have to pretty up the inside..
