Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Hero Hostess Blog Hop continues!

Hi all - It's Day 3 of the Hero Hostess Blog Hop!  Click on over to see inspiration from 7 more talented Hero Hostesses!!  If you missed the other days, click the day below:
I was honored to be a part of Day 2 with 7 awesome sistas!  
If you're looking for my Hop post, go here.  

You have until 11:59 US PST on Sunday 2/22/15 to leave comments for the chance to win Hero Arts PRIZES.  They will draw randomly from  comments left on the 2015 Hop posts of  any of  hopping Hostesses, including the main post at the Hero Club Blog (see links above for each day) - just be sure
you're commenting on the Hop post (this isn't one, but I'll appreciate any comments you leave!)

I made this card as a follow-up to my Hop post:

Shine Brightly

I received the Stamp your Own Succulents clear set (CL839) from Hero Arts and didn't think I could make a succulent card as gorgeous as Jennifer McGuire's card here.  What could I do??  I had this sorta weird idea to use the terrarium stamp as a geometric shape. Call me crazy but I made by own background using that stamp, as well as a star from CL772 Written in the Stars (the sentiment is from that set too), the tiny star from DC152 Thanks Stamp&Cut, and a "flower" from CL498 Celebrate Every Day.   Distress Inks used: Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalad, and Peacock Feathers.  The star die is the medium size from Hero Arts DI095 Stylish Stars and the pierced circle is from a card die cut set by Sizzix #559171 called Circle Flip-it.  The folded card is from Hero Arts Sunshine Mixed Folded Cards set and the purple piece is from the Floral Mixed Layering Paper set.  Thanks again to Hero Arts for a fun Hostess Hop!!

Thanks for stopping and happy crafting!!

Oh wow Linda, what a creative way to use the terrarium stamp! Love the background you created and the way the sentiment really pops on the gorgeous star!
