Spring Blog Hop - Co Hop for Love Bug Creations and Pink By Design

Welcome to our Spring Blog Hop featuring Stamps from Pink by Design and our LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon.  We at LBC are super excited to be co-hosting this hop with the folks at PBD.  Today we are featuring some projects with a theme of the colors of spring.  So settle back with your favorite beverage and hopefully you'll be inspired to create your own treasures.

Here's the complete lineup so you can join the parade:

1. Main Lovebug Creations Blog (Kimi & Pamela): HERE
2. Main Pink by Design Blog NEXT

Mama LoveBug: The PBD stamp set I was assigned is Orange You Awesome - this set has many fruits and sentiments that coordinate with them and, of course, these stamps go so well with our LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon.  I created a triple-stamped card and a gift tag. Hopefully you too will be inspired to use your crafty mojo designs with these products.

 Recipe for the triple-stamped card:
*Triple-stamped technique
* PBD Orange You Awesome Stamp Set - the banana, happy faces, and sentiment
*DCWV Creamy Cardstock
*Spellbinder die
*Stickles (yellow), bling, and frog sticker - I'm joining the All That Stickles Linky Party
*Butterfly punch
*SU inks and whisper white cardstock
*Stardust gel pen
*Puffy banana sticker with googly eyes
*Lemonade LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon for woven effect around the spellbinder die

Recipe for the gift tags:
*PBD Orange You Awesome stamp set - strawberry, sentiment, and happy faces
*DCWV Creamy Cardstock
*Base layer of Kraft paper for sturdiness on center tag
*Stickles, strawberry paper from my stash
*Spellbinder dies
*Puffy strawberry sticker with happy face
*Stardust gel pen
*LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon for the double bow and weaving on the spellbinder die on right

Hey Everyone!!!
Kimi here....
Weren't Mama Lovebug's Projects just too cute? Love em both!
I want to share with you all a card I made! If you didn't know I just got the Cameo on Thursday. It stayed in the box all day (sad I know!) so today I finally got it out! I knew I wanted to use it to make my project for today...What I didn't expect was how difficult it was going to be to do even the simplest thing!
I'm so used to my Cricut Imagine that this was a whole new ball of wax for me!
I spent so much time in the Silhouette store looking at everything and trying to find just the right image to compliment the "Bracketful" Pink by Design Stamp Set that I used (LOVE this set!!!)
So my project isn't what I wanted it to be but I think it's cute! And I know the teams are going to wow you with their projects!

I love the funny orange set!! And the chick is great. You are going to be a pro in no time. Great job to both of you fine crafters!

Ellen Jarvis said...

Simply gray, ehhh? Not "One of 50 Shades of Grey"? Not "Earl Grey"? No worries ... I look forward to adding it to my Rumple Ribbon collection. Hurry with it, as I already have an idea or three.

Love your projects, as always. You and MamaBug are the cleverest!!
