Anniversary Blog Hop

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the So Suzy Stamps Design Team. As a special thank you to everyone who has been on the team, followed our blog and made new friends, we are doing a Friendship Blog Hop with some of our past and present Design Team members.


Join in on the hop, leave a comment for everyone by Friday, December 4th and be entered in to win a $15 gift certificate to So Suzy Stamps!

I am first up on the Anniversary hop today and I did a two for one card and ATC for our Design Team Swap.  At the end of every term, we do a little ATC swap with the current team.  I had so much fun creating them and I thought it would look fabulous on a card so I incorporated it into the card for our Friendship Blog Hop!



I started by sponging the 2.5" x 3.5" white paper with Grape Jelly and Lilac Posies Memento Inks, leaving enough white space at the bottom for the "Sending You an Instant Hug" sentiment.  

Then I randomly placed hot glue over the sponged section, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.  The only thing left was to flick a bit of water over the sponged areas and I was finished with the focal point of my card...and I was finished with my ATC's!

Next up on the hop is Miss Kim!  She was one of our original Design Team members AND coincidentally, the mastermind behind today's special Anniversary Blog Hop!  Be sure and leave everyone a comment in the hop to be entered in our special give-a-way.

Have fun and enjoy!
