Paradise Found Blog Hop

Hi! It's another day at the Spa!!!

It's Day Two of the blog hop for the Paradise Found Collection and today I can finally share some of my creations with you!!! You should have arrived here from Lisa's Blog!


There are so many goodies in this release.  I'm not even kidding.  So. Much. Stuff.  And it's all awesome.  The entire bundle is HERE.  This is what comes in the bundle:

This card was created with the Plaid Background stamp and the Simply the Best stamp set.  I embossed the plaid in the white and added ink colors Juniper Mist, Mandarin Spice and Sauna to create the background.  I really, really, really love plaid, so this stamp is right up my alley.  Look out - I think 99.9% of my holiday cards will use this stamp!



Next, I wanted to create a softer, winter-themed card.  The Winter Woodland stamp set is truly darling.  AND... even though it's technically for winter, I plan on using this all year round.  I created the background using Daydream, Aquatini (yes, the other inks work will with the Spa Inks even though they are more muted) and Peppermint Scrub, with a little bit of the Juniper Mist thrown in, too.  The trees, deer and sentiment were stamped in Midnight.  Once everything was dry, I stamped the bird and snow and heat embossed both of them in white.


Next, I just really wanted to show off the inks! This card shows not only how well they blend together, but also how soft they can be! I gently added Daydream behind the Small Doily Die.  I stamped Daydream and Royal Treatment together on the feather from Birds of a Feather and used the coordinating die.  I added in the sentiment from Simply the Best to finish it off.  This one is clean and simple, but the colors are the star of the card!


Now it's time for you to hop and win! You’ll have through Friday, November 17 at 11:55 am eastern to leave comments. We’ll randomly pick 3 winners for $25 gift certificates to our shop!

And.... don't forget for a VERY limited time, the Carolina Soap Market Soaps are available in the store.  It is only while they last.  They were custom made for this release.  Once they are gone, they are gone, so don't delay! Sauna, Peppermint Scrub and Daydream are the amazing scents available.
