Outlines Spring 2011 Blog Hop

Welcome to our very first Outlines Rubber Stamps blog hop! We are thrilled to be showing off some brand NEW stamps and designs today! This is a newly designed line of images named "Serendipity" and they just scream to be colored! The Design Team each picked a favorite image and we all are sharing something different.


For my card, I started with Woodlands.  What a fun stamp to color, I used lots of bright Spring colors and added some Silver Pearl pen to the mushrooms and Gold Pearl pen to the blue flower centers.  Now every forest needs some Critters and the new Spring release from Outlines Rubber Stamps includes a bunch of them.  I used one of the butterflies from Lilly and Layla as well as Oliver, the caterpillar.  I cut them out and then popped them up for some dimension.  I used my Gold Pearl pen on Oliver's spots and my Red Pearl pen on Lilly's spots.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

To celebrate this new release we are giving away two $25 Gift Certificates to the Outlines Store!

Here's how to win:
Please visit each Blog and leave a comment for each Designer.
Comments need to be completed by 8PM on Sunday, April 17th.
Two random winners will be selected from folks that left comments on all the blogs.
Winners will be announced on The Outlines Blog on Monday, April 18th.
