My Creative Time's May Stamp Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another awesome stamp release blog hop. Emma has done it once again. These new stamps are BEAUTIFUL!!!!! If you have come here from Katie's blog than you are in the right place, if not the beginning of the hop starts at Emma's blog.

Emma asked me to use here beautiful new set called "Happy Homecoming." These stamps are an absolute neccessity for anyone with friends of family that serve or have served in the army, navy, or air force. Emma has designed these stamps so that you can customize your saying in SO many ways. I absolutely LOVE them. She also designed a super adorable frame that all of the sentiments can fit into. Now, if you don't have anyone near and dear serving in the armed forces, these stamps can be used for so many other occasions too. I decided to make a non-military card just so you can see how perfect they can be for other projects as well.


I made this card with my niece in mind. She is more of a blue and purple loving girl so I went with a blue theme. She just returned home after being away for 18 months serving a mission for my church. I thought this would be a perfect way to tell her welcome home.

Don't you just LOVE that adorable frame that fits the sentiment oh so perfectly? And those fonts they are just so beautiful. The beautiful dot background is one of my favorite background stamps from Market Street Stamps. It is called Loopy Loo Polkas.

Emma is so sweet and generous and she is going to give 4 lucky people a stamp set of their choice. All you need to do is hop to every stop on the hop and leave each person a comment for a chance to win. Pretty easy right? You have until Saturday night, May 21st to get your comments in.

Your next stop is Miss Leanne. I know she will have yet another BEAUTIFUL project for you. Click HERE to go to her blog.

If you get lost along the way here is the line-up for the hop:

Katie ~ http://www.craftingwithkatie.com/
Glora ~ http://glorascrafts.blogspot.com/
Leanne ~ http://createdbyleanne.blogspot.com/

Jen ~ http://jennyscards.blogspot.com/
Kate ~ http://www.scrapperscreativecorner.blogspot.com/

I also made this card to enter into the sketch (with a twist) challenge over at Market Street Stamps. I fell in love with the sketch and just had to use it for my card. The twist was to use a background stamp to make an embellishment.

Items Used:

My Creative Time stamps - Happy Homecoming
Market Street Stamps - Loopy Loo Polkas
Die Cuts With a View - Posies
Stampendous clear embossing powder
Grosgrain ribbon
Navy ink for inking

  39. Love the card and the stamp accent. I am founder of "Hugs from Home" where I encourage people to send an APO box, or a letter to a listed service member to give them a "Hugs From Home". I have never met these people only through letter and facebook and I would love to use these stamps to make them their welcome home cards.
