Paper Crafts magazine Presents: Card Creations 9 Blog Hop

Hello, hello!

It’s a good day for a blog hop.

And, today, I’m joining eight other crafters and the Paper Crafts magazine gang  for a blog hop in honor of the all new Card Creations 9 special issue.

Have you heard about it?

Ok. Probably. 😉

But if you haven’t, please check be sure to check it out. It’s the ultimate special issue for card makers. It’s jammed packed with cards for all occasions.

This was one of my favorite issues to work on in the last year because of the sheer number of occasions represented. From general cards to birthday cards to sympathy cards, there’s a bit of everything in it.

The issue is available in book and craft stores all over. You can also find in the Paper Crafts online store by clicking here.

Enough talking about the issue. Let’s get on with the project.

We were invited to make something inspired by the cover.

Here’s what I came up with.

I was inspired by the design of Windy’s Simply the Best card.

I used just one flower and and sentiment, but I opted a bit more color with my card.

Also, rather than using pearls, I used glitter. I applied clear tape to the card and dumped glitter on top of the strips.

Be sure to check the blogs of the other Hoppers to see how they were inspired by the cover.

You’ll also want to comment on my fellow hoppers’ blogs. That’s because they are giving away copies of the issue, too.
