Perfect Match Blog Hop

Welcome to the Perfect Match blog hop! 

Makers along this hop will be featuring products from the Perfect Match campaign. 

You should have arrived here from Stefani Ewing's blog. If you get lost, a list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

The only item I ordered from this campaign was the paper pack so I had to use other stamps to create my projects. 

The first card is a 6x6 shaker card. I used the Florals and Flutters stamp set to stamp nine of the jar with flowers image. Those were coloured and then die cut. The jar component was cut off each image and I placed the flowers in a circle to surround the circle shaker size piece and then adhered them down on a piece of paper from the Perfect Match paper pack. That entire piece was die cut using the shaker circle and I used Ballerina cardstock for inside the shaker. I splattered that piece using both Mint and Flamingo Shimmer Brushes and then stamped a sentiment. Iridescent flower sequins and some die cut hearts were added inside. I drew a border around the edge and hand drew some hearts which were coloured. 

The second card is very simple - the Thanks die was cut using Majestic Holographic Paper and mounted on Candy Apple cardstock. I placed a tag behind the sentiment and added a few coloured embellishments. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards. 

The next visit on this hop is Haley Dyer's blog. I'm sure she will amaze you with her project.
