Good morning, sweet friends!
Today I am participating in a super fun blog hop… it’s the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event! I personally don’t get to take real vacations often, so I welcome any excuse to break out my beach stamps and imagine I’m taking a vacation. That’s right, it’s time to break out the sunglasses, grab a cool drink and drift off to a desert island (er, blog stops) for lots of paper craft inspiration.
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Summer, I think of BRIGHT colors and my card definitely has bright colors featured. I went all out for this card- I created a scene packed full of Summer stamps (all by DeNami Design).
It’s no secret that when I participate in a blog hop, I always have the hardest time choosing what stamps to use. Basically, I pull out dozens of stamps that fit into the theme, play around with different options and then start putting my card together. It makes for a messy desk, but I’ve found this to be a helpful way for me to kick start inspiration. One of these days, I’ll be brave enough to post a picture of what my desk looks like AFTER I finish a blog hop card.
It’s time to hop along now. Make sure you leave comments at each of the blogs listed below to be eligible to win…
