My Sweet Petunia and Crackerbox Stamps Blog Hop




Hi,
It is time for another blog hop. Today we are pairing up with So Suzy Stamps. I selected several ocean based mounted rubber stamps. I forgot how wonderful it is to stamp with deeply etched rubber. I "designed" my card in my head during Shark Week but I never made it until yesterday. This meant 3 revisions LOL!!! I used Lloyd the Diver, Trigger the Sea Horse and Jaws to make this card. The background is ink smooshing using Distress Oxides.



I have a video tutorial about how I made and then unmade and then made my card......and a big blooper!




As for the hop, there are prizes for two winners. One will receive a $50 gift certificate to So Suzy Stamps and the other winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to My Sweet Petunia! Comments must be left prior to 11:59PM CST on August 24th. The winner of the So Suzy gift certificate will be announced on the So Suzy blog on August 31st and the winner of the My Sweet Petunia gift certificate will be announced Tuesday, August 28th. Next on the hop is Lindsay Adreon from So Suzy!!! I cannot wait to see what she does!

  7. This is the best underwater background I have ever seen. I do appreciate you stepping through your process. I've seen color smooshing videos several times but have never seen one done with this much control.
