Day One - Klompenstampers Blog Hop!

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to Day One of our Klompenstampers Blog Hop!  I'm excited to have you visit.  It sure makes this Monday more fun than the typical start of the week, right?

Here is my project for today's posting.  To me is says "Welcome Spring" even if it's chilly outside.

Once again I used our new Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper.  With as often as I use it - you can tell I LOVE it.  This time I layered with no matting.  It gives the card a "shabby" look.  The stitching was done on my sewing machine and it adds to the "shabby" look too.  Since I covered the entire card front this time, your cardstock choice is really based on what color you want on the inside of the card.  Update:  To clarify I covered a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of scrap cardstock in the background paper.  Then I used dimensionals to mount that to the front of my card.  Since it is the same size as my card you don't see any sign of matting.  Also you still have the rigidity of a real card underneath.  Hope that helps!

The chipboard flower at the upper left is covered in our Fine Cosmo Glitter.  It's actually a light blue to go with the card but here it photographed white.  I used Sticky Strip on the glitter and then Crystal Effects to attach the flower.  The small half pearls from the Pretties Kit were glued on with Crystal Effects too.  Great stuff!  The only punch I used was our Modern Label punch.  The string is our Linen Thread wrapped around a few times and tied in a bow.  My greetings were FREE through our fantastic Sale-A-Bration event going on now!  See the link at the left?  Click on it to learn more!

  1. Awesome card. I have never used designer paper as my card base before. I will have to try it as I like the look.

  2. Beautiful card. I am a big fan of shabby. Your other work posted on your blog is just as great. Thanks for sharing.
