Karen's Birthday Blog Hop!!


Welcome to Karen's Birthday Blog Hop!! I am so excited to participate in a hop in honor of my dear friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces!! What better way to celebrate her birthday than hopping along with a few of her crafty friends!!

If you've arrived from the sweet and creative Diana of DL.ART, you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Diana to catch up on all the FUN!! And make sure you stop and wish the birthday girl Karen a happy birthday at the end of the hop!! She will have blog candy up for grabs :)

For my project today, I have a card and gift box I am sending to the birthday girl :)

The patterned paper is from Basic Gray's Sweet Threads. The solid cardstock is from The Paper Studio. The base of the card is a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square, and the next layer is a Spellbinders Labels 12, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (I have no idea the name...I wish they would write them on the folders!!) The base of the center label is a Spellbinders Ironworks Accents die. The center label is a Spellbinders Standard Circles Small, inked and stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. "Celebrate" is from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set. The gems are from Recollections and the awesome crinkle ribbon is from the birthday girl, Karen!!

The inside medallion is also an Spellbinders Ironworks Accents die, and "Today is your day" is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set.

In keeping with the same design as the card, the top of the box was cut with the same Ironworks Accents die. Then clear plastic was adhered inside and the inside decorative pieces were attached with Glossy Accents.

I have blog candy!! I am giving away this cute set of Heidi Grace school-theme stamps:
