Stampin' Up! Boxes and Bags 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for March 2018. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products.

You are currently visiting my blog, Lea Denton and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is another one of my favourites, Boxes and Bags and I can't wait to see what everyone has made.

I'm just loving the Stampin' Up! Lots of Happy Card Kit right now so it was perfect to use it around my design today. The base of the cards in the kit is Sahara Sand colour so I used some cardstock in the same colour to make a bag to match the cards.

The stamp set that comes with this kit is so simple yet so very versatile and I just love those flowers! The bunch you can see in the bottom left of the photo on the left is the one I used to stamp a background on the Sahara Sand cardstock. I used Sahara Sand ink to do the background as I wanted a tone on tone effect - not too much but something to break up the plain cardstock.

The kit does come with a set of watercolour pencils to use but I wanted to make the flowers a bit more vibrant so coloured them with my Stampin' Blends Markers. I went over the leaves with the Lemon Lime Twist Watercolor Pencil to make the shade of green closer to the ribbon which ties everything in nicely.

Thank you once again for visiting my blog and taking part in our blog hop. There are so many amazing ideas being shared by the Team you really don't want to miss any of it! Make sure you carry on hopping through the list to see everything there is. Remember that currently you are at my blog Lea Denton so check the Blog Hop line up list above to see who is next.
