CHA IO DT Blog Hop Day 1


Welcome to the first day of our week long CHA DT Blog Hop.  We are using our new Fall/Winter  stamps and dies.   Mitra is also introducing them starting today at CHA at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, July 22 through 25.  The details of the challenge are below my card details and the DT blog list.

For my card above I chose Aislinn Adam's new Prairie Plants and a sentiment from clear set Hydrangea.  Below is how I put it together:

  • stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and painted with Twinkling H2O's on white cardstock,
  • used Spellbinders die as template to cut-out the image (a little Out-Of-The-Box technique around the edges when trimming).
  • mounted flowers with 3D pop-dots
  • added White Flower Soft to the left flowers
  • used Glossy Accents on the yellow flowers and
  • put a little FS in the middle of the flower and painted with orange.
  • added 3mm pearl stickers to the corners and added yellow bow.
  • stamped sentiment with Memento Olive  on a 1/2"X3.5" strip of white cardstock mounted and trimmed on the cardfront edge.

Your card is so pretty! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Looks like a beautiful garden scene. Love the colors.

Gorgeous card!!! Beautiful dies and stamps. I found OI because I am following Dina Kowal on FB. So glad I did, I enjoyed visiting the DT today.

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous! It is one of 'those' cards, that I'd love to touch - looks so realistic! Beautifully done, Shirley! Can't wait for tomorrow's post!

I have to agree gorgeous card! what fun to have a hop and so many chances to win in your drawing.

Colors are outstanding, just beautiful!

Love the floral and prairie plant stamps. Gorgeous card! Hope to be a winner of the gift certificate!

Love how you used the Prairie Plants stamp - it looks sort of 3-d. Very nice card.

Loved your hop today! And your prairie plants look real!

I love your garden scene! TFS

Pretty card. I'm excited to see what's new and what the designers created.

OMGoodness you created a beautiful card your flowers look real...thanks for sharing..I can't wait to see what your DT has for us.

Love how you mounted the flowers from the Prairie Plants. Beautiful!!

Great garden scene, the Flower soft is very effective. I have been round the blogs (very entertaining)and round the new products... suffice to say my wish list is BIG. It will need serious pruning before getting into the basket!

Wonderful card. Haven't made many scene cards but looks like fun.

Your card reminds me of a field of wildflowers just waiting for me to pick them. Thank you for making me "pick" my brain for new inspiration.

Shirley, love the new stamp! The Queen Ann's Lace looks real with the flower soft. You have done a beautiful job debuting this, gorgeous!

Your card is beautiful. The leaves are so realistically colored that I feel as if I could reach out and touch them.

Lovely artwork in design and textures!

beautiful card shirley! i love the texture and of course the colouring with twinks. the new release has a nice mix of sentiments, images and backgrounds but my fave is building a snowman - it's hilarious and i'm more of a christmas fan than halloween.

Looks like lots of new tempting goodies!!!

Beautiful design Shirley! I love that die behind the colourful image. I took a 'hop' around the blogs and see awesome new stamps! I hope your day has been going well. Cheers, Shirleyx

Lovely creation Shirley! It's late but I will hop along! warm greet Miranda

Georgeous card, Phyllis. Don't you love twinks? They are a fav of mine. All the products you used gave so much dimension. Loved your shading and coloring.....it looks so very real. This was a fun hop with lots of variety.

I was immediately impressed with your beautiful card. Then had to check out all the details. Love it!

Beautiful card!!!Love the stamp!

Wow is this card beautiful! I love all the details and color!

Beautiful stamp! Your coloring makes it come alive, seriously! :) Great card, love the ribbon and greeting positioning too.

Great blog hop today, I loved seeing the new stamps, YAH!

What an amazing card with gorgeous detail!

Lovely card--I like the dimension.

Darn! I placed my IO order the day before the new releases came out. Oh well, maybe it's better that way. So many choices, so little money! LOL!
Shirley, this card is so pretty! The flower soft makes the flowers look so real!

Whoops, must have messed up my first post -- Lovely flowers, and esp using Flower Soft!
