ArtfulINKables Blog Hop!!

second post for today...please scroll down for my Color Throwdown post...


Welcome to your next stop on the ArtfulINKables blog hop! If you arrived from Elena's blog, you're in the right place...if you want to start from the beginning, head on over to Kristen's blog and make your way back. Since it's summer and Kristin has been super busy, there is no new release for July so the team to decided to do a blast from the past blog hop! Meaning, we're showing you some sets that were released recently and not so recently. Have you seen all the sets that Kristin has available?!!! Plenty to choose from...make sure when you're done with the hop you go take a look!

For this hop I decided to use the Hybiscus set... a set of two stamps...a flower and a leaf. I made an invite, thank you and favor set...I also used the basic sentiments set.

The favor is made from a clear acrylic block (that you would put your stamps on!). I found them at the Target $1 spot. I stamped the flower on cardstock, matted it with black and then adhered it to the back of the block with crystal effects. I then added two sided tape to the outer edges and added some seed beads and dazzling diamonds. It can be used as a paper weight or just adhere a magnet dot and it's ready for your fridge or file cabinet!

Thanks for checking in on my stop of the hop...head on over to Velta's blog for your next stop on the inspiration trail!

See you soon...
