We have two special Guest Designers on our hop this month.

Veronica Zalis won our February Guest Designer Challenge and I am thrilled that she is joining us. I have had a chance to preview her projects and let me tell you, they are amazing!




Our second Guest Designer for this month is Nina Yang.  I just adore Nina's style and photography.  If you are not familiar with her work, you are in for a treat.  I had the pleasure of meeting Nina at CHA and not only is she incredibly talented, she is just as sweet. Love that!!


I have a project from our Good Fortune set to share with you.  I created this clean card using the 8 ball included in our Good Fortune set.   Since this image is rather large a quick tip to get good coverage is to add VersaMark ink to your stamp before the ink of your choice.  I used VersaFine Onyx Black (it is my absolute favorite black) to stamp the image below. 


On the inside of the card, I created a panel matted similar to the front using Crate Paper patterned paper.  I flipped the triangle image around and stamped with the back side, creating this solid triangle.  I let the ink dry and then stamped and embossed the "without a doubt" and bubble image inside the triangle.  When creating this set, I really liked the idea of being able to decorate the inside of my cards as well. 

 Well, that is all from me today.  Hop on over to Chunyuan's blog next to see the Oh Baby projects she has in store for you!!

Chunyuan Wu
Veronica Zalis
Heather Campbell
JJ Bolton
Nina Yang
Kasia Curry ** We are so excited because Kasia just had her new baby boy earlier this week! Congratulations!!**

I hope you enjoy all of the inspiration.  I would love to hear what you think about our release.

Thanks for stopping by!
