Sweet Stamps Botanicals Blog Hop

Today Sweet Stamps is hosting a blog hop to showcase new stamps from our very own Jacqueline Hill; some fabulous floral images.  Visit each team member's blog and collect a letter.  Once you get all the letters, unscramble them to reveal a word.  Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer.

We will be awarding a first place prize of your choice of 6 stamps from the new release and a second place prize of your choice of 4 stamps from the new release.  We will also be awarding random prizes of rubber stamps chosen from the readers who comment on each member's blog so be sure to leave some love.  Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, June 27th before our next challenge.  Start your hop with Jacqueline's blog and continue through the team.


For my card, I am using the new Mum Bouquet and Corner Duo. It is not often I can leave a card with out a slew of embellishments but I think these fabulous flowers need nothing extra.


I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Mums - YR16, YR18, Y21
Leaves - YG93
Bow - R27
I added black Viva Decor Pearl Pen to the berries.  I paired this up with a fabulous paper from the Basic Grey Indian Summer 6x6 paper collection.  And finished it off with my new Cheery Lynn Designs Border Carnivale die cut.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Your letter to collect is "B",  now don't forget to return to the Challenge blog and leave your answer as a comment. Good luck and happy hopping!
