Carmaker + Impression Obsession Blog Hop

Today I'm hopping with Impression Obsession and CardMaker magazine with this cupcake card. It makes me hungry just looking at it!

I colored this fun design with Copics and added the title using Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on black cardstock. I love the striking contrast between the rainbow colors and the black and white at 
the bottom.

Impression Obsession will be hosting a giveaway on their blog of a $25 gift certificate to their shop. Please visit their blog for entry information.  

Below is the blog hop list. The entire list will be included on the CardMaker blog post in case anyone gets lost.

Welcome to the Momenta and Cardmaker Magazine blog hop! I had the pleasure of working with a beautiful feather stamp and die this time around. The first thing I thought of when I saw the stamped image was - dreamcatcher! Here's my version on a card:

I started with Momenta patterned paper and a circle die to create the center of the dreamcatcher. Wrapping it in thin twine and finishing it off with a spray of stamped feathers. Using pigment inks really helped create nice, solid stamped image. A few sequins and a sentiment by Momenta finish the design.

Please visit the Momenta Facebook page for a giveaway and be sure to follow the hop list below for more card ideas!

Elle's Studio Mini Kits Review + Video

I have a product review video of the new Elle's Studio kits up on You Tube Channel if you'd like to take a closer look at each mini kit: 

I've been practicing my filming skills again and hope to have more You Tube videos up very soon! I haven't kept up with making videos since my Two Peas day and let me tell you - the learning curve is steep. But I've missed sharing through video so I'm going to give it a go. One last summer trip planned and then it's back to crafting and sharing!
