Paper Sundaes Birthday Blog Hop and Blog Candy!

Happy Sunday and welcome to the Paper Sundaes 1st Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!

If you have arrived here from Tracy's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, you can start at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog and hop along so that you don't miss out on any of the gorgeous creations from the Sundae Girls (and for your chance to win some yummy candy)!

Remember to collect a WORD at each stop and comment at each stop so you are entered for some amazing prizes! Your last stop will be back at the beginning where you can leave all the WORDS you collected along the way for your chance to win even more!

Our challenge this week is extra special - we would like you to show us your favorite challenge from the past year! And to celebrate, we have FIVE different prizes for FIVE randomly drawn winners!




My card is using the theme from PSC18 which is the week we made
Easel Fold Cards. I am also using an image from one of our fabulous sponsors...Lili of the Valley...she's called New Hat! I've colored it with Copics and matted it several times on coordinating cardstock. I stamped this on bright white paper and then decided that I really wanted my background to match, so I decided to color the entire background of the image with my Egg Shell Copic marker!


The papers are from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection. I cut out some leaves with a Sizzix die and added them to this sticker element from the Thrift Shop collection. I added a few pearls and a sheer ribbon and the front of the card is done!


For the inside (or bottom of the easel card), I layered some patterned paper and cardstock and cut a decorative edge with a Martha Stewart scalloped eyelet edge punch. I added pearls in between the scallops to 'hold' my card open. You can use so many things to accomplish this, but the little pearls hold it back evenly! The label is also from the same paper collection and is stamped with a Lili of the Valley sentiment. Just a couple more pearls finish it off perfectly!

I'd like to celebrate by offering a little blog candy too! One lucky, random commenter from this blog post will win this fabulous My Favorite Things a la mode stamp set! I will pick the winner on Saturday, January 23rd!


The word you need to collect here is "TO." Your next stop on our blog hop is Lisa's blog and I'm sure she will have something very special for you to see!

You have really done the stamp justice with this card, it is absolutely adorable. Love that you have made it an easel card (Which I feel best shows off a LOTV stamp as it allows a lot of area for beautiful flowery complimentary papers. I just love it, the colour, the layout, colouring everything. A very sweet card. Thanks also for the chance to win you candy. In the meantime, I hope you are having a great day. :-)
