Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop...


Welcome everyone who is joining us for a fun blog hop to spread JOY in the crafting community. There is 31 sponsors and 153 bloggers participating. How cool is that? Let's get started. 


Today I am sharing a card created using Pink & Main: Floral Corners Die set, Basket Cover die set, Sentiment Strip die set and Grateful Greetings stamp set


You can get all these fun dies and stamps at Pink & Main online store.


I die cut the Floral Corners Die set multiple times and layered each piece to give it some dimension. I die cut once again and kept the negative part so it showed in the background.  


The colorful paper was created using Ranger alcohol inks and water. You use a pan of water and drop your alcohol inks in the water. Take some precut white card-stock and dip quickly in the water, pull out and lay on some paper towels to let dry. 

Die cut all your images and this cool background and piece your card together. Finishing up with this pretty sentiment and die cutting with the Sentiment Strip die set.


So many awesome sponsors and prizes to be won.
SO make sure to hop all the blogs and leave comments for a chance to win.

NEXT UP IS  → IRIS WIECHMANN
If you are just join us please start at Catherine Pooler's Blog or Hedgehog Hollow Blog

Deadline to enter is April 24 for prizes. 
Winners will be announced on Monday, April 27 on Catherine and Alexandra's blog.

Thank you so much for joining us.
Happy Hopping and Good luck!
