My Sweet Petunia and Heffy Doodle Blog Hop

Welcome to today's hop between My Sweet Petunia and Heffy Doodle Stamps. 


We have much to share with you from the Design Teams, and a Giveaway.

But first, how do you join in for a chance to win? We will select from those who comment on all the blogs, 2 lucky people who will win one of two prizes: a $50.00 shopping spree at My Sweet Petunia or a  £25.00 shopping spree at Heffy Doodle.  Please be sure to leave your comments by Sunday, March 4th, at 11:59 pm Central time. The winner's will be announced on Tuesday, March 6th on the My Sweet Petunia and Heffy Doodle blogs.

I made a few cards for this hop. First up, I am using the Geology Rocks Stamp Set and my Mini Misti.

 I started off by heat embossing the diamonds with white embossing powder, then painting with Color Burst in Alizaron Crimson. Here is a picture showing the painting while still wet.
 I then stamped another single diamond using red ink, and heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment close together, then inked in the hashtag and die cut it with my label die.
I styled the diamond and added some Wink of Stella to give it the "diamond" look.
Did you know that red diamonds are the rarest diamonds, and the most expensive, running at $300,000.00 for 0.20 carat. I guess I won't be getting one of these, so I will paint them. 😊
And, I did another diamond card leaning more to the pinks, and did a pink diamond which I also added Wink of Stella to. You can see the shine in this picture. For this card I used the "You're a Gem" sentiment. 
And, my third card for today takes us to Easter.
 For this card I used the adorable stamp set called Honey Bunny Boo. I arranged the stamps I wanted to use in my Mini Misti and stamped using black ink, then proceeded to colour with Zig Brushes and Kuretake Pearl Paints. To put it all together, I made a little scene for the bunnies, die cutting some grass and tucking the eggs in the grass and the carrots out front. I then die cut the Easter die in white card stock and sponged on the colour, then stamped the sentiment using the same colour. 
I hope you have enjoyed these cards.

Following is the list and links of those participating in today's hop. You should have arrived here Jessica McAfee's blog, and next up is Tallie Clewley

What beautiful cards!

Annalisa Young said...

What a fun look with all the gems! I would have gone bonkers trying to mask it all out, but you make an excellent point (with your card) that of course you would be able to see through the gems! I love how that turned out. And your other cards are beautiful as well; great job really using the materials. Thanks for sharing and participating in this hop!
