Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday Blog Hop...It's Party Time!!!

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards’ First Birthday Blog Hop...Whoo hoo!!! As a past Lily Pad Cards Guest Designer, I was thrilled to be asked to join the Lily Pad Cards gang to help celebrate their First Birthday!!!

So, for my card today I thought I would take the opportunity to showcase one of the New My Favorite Things, A La Modes stamp sets that will be available in the MFT release on April 3rd 10 PM EST! This New A La Modes, Martinis On Me, was just perfect for a celebratory card for Lily Pad Cards First Birthday Blog Hop! I coloured up this fun ALM girlie with my Copic markers and to add a glossy look to the martini glass I used Viva Decor Transparent Gloss-pen. The papers are Echo Park Victorian Gardens. I also used the new MFT Fishtails Flags STAX Die-namics, the new Chevron Stripes Border Die-namics and the Say What Die-namics dies on my card. To embellish I added a pretty pink pearl and gem flourish that I cut up and sprinkled around the card. The sentiment comes in the great ALM, Martinis On Me stamp set and I stamped it on the Say What speech bubble.

Here is a close up shot of the Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Pen on the image.

Here is the inside of my card...I stamped the ALM, Martinis On Me girlie again and used the MFT New Circle STAX Die-namics, a sentiment from the Big Greetings Stamp set which will be released on April 3rd 10 PM EST at MFTstamps. I also used the Framed Greetings Die-namics die too.

Well, thanks so much for hopping by and joining in on the Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday Blog Hop!!!

I remember your Guest Designer spot at the Pad and I remember that you were Canadian also. It was extremely nice to see the work of someone else from here and your work is amazing. All the layering, stitching and colouring of these sweet images from MFT really is inspirational. Love your work and thanks for the inspiration. Hugs.
