ABNH Design Team Blog Hop

Hey Everyone!!!

Today I am here with the girls from A Blog Named Hero and our announcement of the new Design Team.
This year A Blog Named Hero is going to be bringing lots of fun challenges and inspiration to our stamping world. We sadly have lost some wonderful members of our team but we have added wonderful members too. To all that have left...we love you and will miss you. To all that have joined...WELCOME!

For those that don't know my name is Michelle Liimatainen. I have been stamping for the past 4 years but scrapbooking for 15. Paper and stamps are my passion. If this is your first time here please leave a comment and say HI! I hope you will return often. If you are a follower please leave a comment to say HI!

To welcome the new girls I came up with this card:

Hello DT blog hop

I wanted it to be bright and happy. I started by embossing the background with White embossing powder on watercolor paper. I then used many colors of Distress inks to ink it in the color of a rainbow and then spritzed it with Perfect Pearls.

I trimmed it down, added a label from Paper Trey Inks Mat Stack 4 Collection and a Hello stamp from Studio Calico and Hero Arts. The flags are from Hero Arts Friendly Flag set. The embossed dots are Cuttlebug.

Super easy, fast and bright.

Now please hop on to the very talented and super great person Leslie Hannah. If you get lost at anytime you can always return here or to ABNH for the complete list. Happy Hopping.



I'll be back with ABNH's first challenge of February later this week!
