Stampendous and Core'dinations Blog Hop!

2014_06_coredinations 

 Hope you've enjoyed the terrific collaboration between Stampendous products and Core'dinations' gorgeous papers! We have been thrilled to bring it to you! Today is the final day!!

I decided to use another one of their already-embossed papers, this time in a fresh green called "Mantis." 


I have been lazy lately with my background papers but my Core'dinations projects this week have reminded me that an embossed background (or some other kind of special treatment goes a long way to spicing up the card. 


I coloured the image, Bouquet Kiddo with Copic markers then fussy-cut her out. Look at those green eyes!! (Fun fact: did you know that only 1-2% of the entire world population has green eyes? I have 'em and man I am lucky!!) 


Last detail: the sentiment. Did you know there were a couple of sentiment sets that are designed to coordinate with the Stack Art? I love them because they are so versatile and are full of staples.. This particular stamp set is called: Regal Bird Quotes


Of course there are prizes!
