Nature Of Friendship Blog Hop Challenge (at the end of this post)


Today's sneak peek is of the set Nature Of Friendship. This set is my favorite of this release! It is a gorgeous silhouette set that is designed to make different scenes to frame absolutely beautiful friendship sentiments. This set is easily going to become a favorite of yours!








For my first card, I took a piece of glossy card stock and sponged some light colors to make a beautiful sunrise. I then stamped the various images and sentiment in chocolate chip craft ink. After the ink was completely dry, I matted the main image with Basic Grey DP and Very Vanilla cardstock. This was a very simple card to make but I love the elegance of it!






For this second card I took the flower stem that comes in this set and used it to make a branch. I then took one of the flowers and used it to make leaves. The flowers were stamped in Certainly celery, Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss. I added some little flowers stamped in Rose Red to bring out the Basic Grey paper I used on the back panel. I added those cute little birds and that is it for the main panel!




Make sure you stop by the other Trendsetter's blogs and leave a comment! When you are done, come back here and add your name to the Mister Linky box for your chance to win a FREE set of Nature Of Friendship :)

I usually wait until the end to comment - but wanted to let you know I couldn't get Jessie's blog to load. I tried 3 different times and waited about 2 minutes each time. Her header and sidebar info came up but not the blog posts. Will I still qualify for the drawing???? Pleeeeeeease!!!!!

Jill Haddad said...

4TH time was the charm. I finally got Jessie's blog to load and I am so happy I kept trying. Her card with this set is GORGEOUS. My top 3picks: yours, Faith's and Jessie's. Great work all of you and a wonderful set for sure.
