Imaginisce blog hop and winner from Rockin' New Years hop!

Hello out there in bloggy world. Today I am sharing my first project made for the i-top intensive week at the Imaginisce blog where we will be showcasing different ways to use your i-top! :) 

Today Liz, Kim, and I are showing you cards using the i-top. You should have gotten here from the Imaginisce blog and now you are headed over to Kim's blog!!! 

I was trying to think of something super fun to share with you and I hope that you liked that I used the i-top for the ladybug's spots. :)

Recipe:
Cartridges: Wild Card™ (shape of the card) and Create a Critter™ (ladybug)
Embossing folders: Swiss Dots™ (Ladybug's spots) and D'vine Swirls
Pattern Paper: Imaginisce Garden Party Collection "Brambleberry Flowers" and "Wild Flowers" from the 6x6 Paper Pad
Flowers: Imaginisce Foral Flourish- Pinks
Solid pattern paper: Cricut™ and Core'dinations
Stamps: My Pink Stamper: Family and Friends
i-top
16mm brad daddies (small)
i-rock
Hot Rock Compacts - Crystal
Extreme Adhesive Squares from Glue Arts


Designer's notes:

I used my i-rock to set the stones on the top of the ladybug's antennae and the middle of the flowers.
I sanded the Core'dinations paper after embossing it with swiss dots to create the "polka dots" on the brads.
I used my Extreme Adhesive Squares from Glue Arts™ to layer and attach the flowers - they aren't going anywhere! :) 

Oh! The winner of the Rockin' New Years blog hop is my good friend Stacy! 




Stacy said...
