Pals Blog Hop – Special Occasions Cherry Blossoms

Pals Blog Hop July 2019 Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! While COVID 19 is keeping us home, take a moment to sit back and allow this hop to lift your spirits and offer a creative break.  Our theme is “Special Occasions”;  projects for just about any occasion you can think of!  You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

It’s been driving me a little crazy that I haven’t had a chance to ink up the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set! 

Since the theme of this hop was “Special Occasions” I thought it was the perfect time to ink it up and get rid of a little of my craziness.

    Such a beautiful card, and I must attempt to make myself a card. Today I tried my dies and was disappointed so I am asking you, an obvious successful creator….. how did you cut the dies out….did you use a layer, magnetic sheet, plastic shim or even a paper one. Thank you so much

  7. Mary Hanson

    I love everything about this card! It’s a work of art!
