Make it Crafty's FIRST ever Blog Hop...New Images release, Prizes & Surprises Galore!

Hi Everyone,

I am very excited to be a part of Zoe's very first blog hop! If you are just stopping by you will want to be sure to head over to Zoe's blog so as not to miss a beat on the hop! If you've arrived from Beccy's Blog you are in the right spot! 

Today we are revealing some absolutely gorgeous new images that you will be able to incorporate with all of your favourite characters. They have been designed for ‘Spring and Love’ so they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Friendships and more.

I am over the moon that a number of talented ladies agreed to join us for the hop to help launch these new images. You’ll be hopping away with lots of inspiration from ALL around the world.

PLUS most importantly, when you make it all the way to the end our big surprise will be revealed.

And now for my card...


I used the new Ornate Floral Frame - Isn't it GORGEOUS?! It's perfect for framing your favorite seated image. I colored my image with Copics and oh, I didn't write them down - I used about 6-7 different G & YG for the leaves and then did some feather blending with a really light YR and V on the flowers. For the centers I had to add some bling with purple rhinestones! I added my Miss Anya to the center of the frame after coloring & cutting her out, then I popped the entire image up on my kraft base. I left the design simple with some lace & pearls to accent the sentiment. I hope I've inspired you to spruce up your images with some FUN background stamps.

BLOG HOP DETAILS

How to win the big prizes

Along the way you need to look for puzzle pieces. They won’t be on every post so you need to keep an eye out for them. The puzzle pieces make up one of the NEW images. At the end of the hop there will be an email form where you can submit your answer. This is so that your answer is private.

All the correct answers will be placed into a draw in the order that they are received and random winners will be chosen.

Guess what, you just found ANOTHER puzzle Piece:



Hmmm, have you figured out which image this is yet?

Remember, Leave comments to win random prizes. There are SEVEN hidden prizes along the way that could be rubber or digital stamps so make sure you leave a comment as you hop to ensure you have a chance at winning additional prizes!

Extra Prize
Place our blog hop blinkie on your blog for more chances to win! Make sure you comment on every post as we will randomly select a commenter from a random post and if they have the blinkie on their blog they will win a choice of one rubber stamp and one digi stamp from the new collection.

1st prize - Rubber Collection (Peaches of Plenty, Petals and Palings, Daffodil Dell, Ivy Swing)
2nd prize - Whole Digital Collection (10 digital stamps)
