Happy Birthday Diana Blog Hop!!

For the Paper Playtime Challenge "Hot & Spicy" click HERE!!

Welcome to the Happy Birthday Diana Blog Hop!! I am so excited to participate in a hop in honor of my dear friend Diana of DL.ART!! What better way to celebrate her birthday than hopping along with a few of her crafty friends!!

If you've arrived from Carri of DoubleClick - AKA Abusybee, 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 Norma of PinkBlingCrafter (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN and you don't want to miss the opportunity for BLOG CANDY!!) And make sure you stop and wish the birthday girl Diana a happy birthday at the end of the hop!! She will have blog candy up for grabs, as well as a linky party!!

For Diana's birthday, I made a card and gift bag that I will be sending to her :)

All of the papers are from K&Company's Brenda Walton Flora and Fauna stack. The base of the bag is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle. The next layer is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle, embossed with the Sizzex Tim Holtz Bricked embossing folder. New Sprout Memento ink was applied to the folder before embossing.

The label is a Spellbinders Labels 8, with Spellbinders Parisian Accents dies on the sides. The scalloped circles are Spellbinders Blossoms Tags and Accents dies, the white layer embossed with the Bricked Folder. The center is a Spellbinders Standard Circles Small, edged with Recollections gems and inked with New Sprout Memento ink. "Wish Big" is from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.

The card was designed in much the same fashion as the bag. "Happy" is from K Andrew Designs Fall-o-Ween stamp set and "Birthday" is from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set.

"My Friend' is from K Andrew Designs Crafty Friends stamp set.

I am entering this in the Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Birthday Challenge.

Gorgeous Lisa!!! I love the different dies you used, they made these look so elegant. And the beading on the gift bag is fabulous!!!!!!!

Karen said...

YAY, I love when you do little sets like this! She is going to LOVE these. (In fact, I'm sure she's already in love with them at first glance.) The colors are beautiful and I just love the papers and dies you chose. The ribbon is gorgeous. I love that you used a dark purple to bring out the whimsical pattern in the paper. I desperately want to make one of those bags using Elegant Edges, but I seriously fear my ability to make a secure handle like yours. This is such a stunning project, my sweetest friend. :o) Thank you also for the opportunity to win those yummy stamps! Have a sparkly day, my dear Lisa!

Hugs and blessings!
