New Craft Stash Blog Hop



The main premise of the hop is to use something New - "New" meaning - new to the papercrafting market, new to you, or newly discovered in your Craft Stash - you know the stuff you bought, tucked away and forgot about! I chose to use my Twinkling H2O's, which literally, dropped in their reminder when they fell on my desk from a tucked away shelf!

I love these watercolors because they add a bit of sparkle while still keeping the vibrant colors. I stamped a row of birds from the cute Hello Bluebird Stamp Set, Silly Birds Stamp Set and colored them in with the Twinkling H2O's. I adhered the panel onto a colored cardstock base, and then added a sentiment for a CAS card.




There are some amazing prizes up for grabs on this three day hop (today is day one!) and winners will be drawn Sunday July 23rd. All you have to do to win is comment on each stop on the hop for the three days. We know everyone is busy during the summer so we split the hop into three days and gave you extra time to comment.
