Inspired By Stamping + Die Versions = Blog Hop!!!


Hi everyone! Welcome to the Inspired By Stamping and Die Versions Blog Hop. Twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. Yay!!!

Inspired by Stamping designs & manufactures the highest quality photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters and has teamed up with Die Versions, makers of metal paper dies with exceptional designs for this special eye candy of SPRING THEMED PROJECTS.

Just leave each designer a comment along your way and end at the Inspired By Stamping blog. There is a chance to win a fabulous prize at the end of this crafty hop.

I've made a couple cards that showcase some of my favorite colors--and some spring time flowers, too!  Since I have a May birthday, I hope you'll forgive me in indulging myself in making a few birthday cards!

Here's the first card~

And the second card~
