Hop to Stop + MHKDesigns


Hi, friends!  I feel so honored to let you know that MHKDesigns is sponsoring the Hop to Stop this month!  One lucky winner will be chosen to win three stamp sets and three paper packs from the MHKDesigns store!  You'll receive the products below, plus one set and one paper pack of your choice!


So, what is this hop all about?  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence. 

This hop will go until the 14th of the month, and winners will be announced on the 17th. Any type of papercraft/mixed media art project is welcome, as long as it *features* the color purple (domestic violence awareness color).

For more information about domestic violence, its impacts, and available resources, visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence

I made two creations for this hop.  They use products that I'm offering as prizes.  My first creation is a card using the Rainbow of Ribbons stamp set, Rainbow of Ribbons paper pack, Positively Purple paper pack, and Butterfly Wisdom stamp set.  Check it out...


I used the purple ribbon paper and image as my focal panel, then added one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Wisdom set as an embellishment.  Some rhinestones were added for shine and finish.


The sentiment is from the Rainbow of Ribbons set.  I punched and layered it, then added a row of liquid pearls to anchor it.


The card base was gussied up with some Positively Purple paper, a doily, some ribbon, rhinestones, and liquid pearls.  All purples and white, of course!


The next project is an art journal page that I decided to frame.  It will be given as a gift. :)  It uses the Butterfly Wisdom set.  Take a peek...



I used the collage image from the set and watercolored the images.  I added washi tape around it and in the middle, then added a fussy cut sentiment.  Some glitter and liquid pearls were added as accents.




I really love how these projects both turned out.  I hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts!



GIVEAWAY ALERT!

I will also be giving away these four specially made products to one person who comments here on my post...for every 20 comments! That's right, the more comments, the more chances to win!  Tell your friends! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by, friends!  I hope you take some time in the next few days to make something and link up with the Hop to Stop!  Some of my gals are also sharing samples with these products, so check out their blogs, too!


Here are the links~


That's all for me today.  I'll be back soon with other crafty pursuits!  Until then, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping! :)
