Let's Hop with The Stamping Boutique


Welcome to your first stop on our "Freestyle Blog Hop" with The Stamping Boutique!  We have a wonderful new design team and we thought it would be fun to show of our own style with this hop, so you will see lots of different images and projects along the way! 

This hop starts today, November 11th (12:01 am CST) and will run all weekend ending on Sunday, November 13th (11:59 pm CST) to allow you plenty of time to hop. Now with any hop there has to be some prizes along the way right? Well this hop is no exception!! You will want to make sure to visit each design team member's blog and leave a comment as each one will be giving away one TSB image!

If that isn't enough to entice you to hop with us, well maybe this will- 1 random person (who comments on all DT blogs and leaves a final comment on this blog) will be selected to win the entire set of our newest line of images called the Smoochies.  HOLY MOLY, now that is a great prize as there are 11 images in the line currently!!! You can see the Smoochies HERE!

I decided to create something a little different than the typical card, I made an altered frame.  I have picked my wooden frame up at Walmart for $1, painted it pink, and then added a cardstock base.  Next I cut lots of wonderful roses using my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge in Baby Pink and HollyHock papers.  The roses are cut at 3 & 5 inches.  Finally I added this adorable
"Smoochie Blowing Kisses" image and cut her out.( I will probably do another image and use some different pink copics as this doesn't quite match the way I want it too!)  A little ribbon as a final touch and I have a perfect gift for someone with a tiny dancer!

So are you ready to hop along? Well your next stop is Jessica and I hear she has been a busy lady with several projects to share!

Below is your hop order in case you get lost along the way:
