Studio Stampers May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio Stampers May Blog Hop.  The amazing Krystie Hersch and her downline are hopping along today to show you all sorts of a muse|studio goodness.  If you're interested in any of the products needed to make any of the samples shown in the hop, be sure to visit my a muse|studio store.  

For my card, I decided to get a little cutesy and do some coloring and paper piecing.  I love all the dimension on this card and this layout is sure to be one of my faves that you'll see quite often.  I added a piece of french roast gingham to a kraft card base and then rounded the corner of the card with my Corner Chomper.  Then I cut a piece of sugar and grass card stock with my Circle Nestabilites--I've forgotten how fun the classic shapes could be and I'll be pulling out my circles, squares, and rectangles a lot in the near future.     I stamped an oval from ovalicious onto the sugar circle in grass ink for the ground.  The tree from woodland friends was stamped onto french roast and sage polka dot cardstock .  The leaves of the tree were popped up with 3D foam adhesive.  The hedgehog from friends fur-ever was stamped onto sugar cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored in with Copic Markers before being cut out and placed near the tree on 3D foam adhesive. I had to color her flower in with a Clear Spica Glitter pen for a little bit of bling even though this card has pretty neutral and subdued colors :-) The sugar circle was adhered to the grass circle with Tombow Mono Aqua glue and then adhered to the cardfront.  Finally, the sentiment from woodland friends was stamped on the front of the card with french roast ink.

Thanks for visiting!
