The 3rd Annual MOABH by There She Goes Stamps!


Welcome to the 3rd annual Mother of All Blog Hops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps!   Over the next two days, we (customers and trendsetters!) will be featuring some of our favorite There She Goes Clear Stamp sets!   Not only that, we’re going to give YOU a chance to win some fabulous prizes!
To find out how, please go to the There She Goes’ blog and read the simple instructions.

My card is very easy peasy made with the Garden of Life stamp set by There She Goes clear stamps. 

I used my favorite cardstock (Pure Luxury 120# heavy weight in white made GinaK Designs), as well as a Bazzill layer in olive, run through the Cuttlebug with Leafy Branches embossing folder. Then I used Spellbinders Small Dies (has the ticket tab cuts on the corners) on GinaK 80# white layering cardstock for the image and sentiment - both cut and embossed.

I used Memento inks in Cantaloupe and Pear Tart to sponge as background for the sentiment, as well as on the Martha Stewart 'pop up' lotus flower punched out flower. I cut out a cloud shape from a post it note (lifted idea from Theresa Momber - thanks Theresa!) and sponged the clouds in Memento (blue) Sea Breeze. The image is colored with Copic markers, with Diamond stickles over the dragonflies (sparkles IRL). I tied some dark green twine through a yellow button, and used Crystal Lacquer over the button and the middle of the sunflower to add 3D lift and effect. To finish it off, I balanced the lower left corner out with 3 ivory adhesive backed pearls.
