***** Great Impressions and Creative Inspirations Blog Hop *****

Hey everyone, today I have a fun blog hop for you. The design teams from Great Impressions Stamps and Creative Inspirations Paints have gotten together for a joint hop. We are featuring lots of wonderful projects using products from both companies.
Along with the hop, we are celebrating the grand opening of the new

                                            Great Impressions Store

So please stop by the store and have a look at all the fabulous stamps and at the awesome card gallery. 

My card was created with roses I made out of watercolor paper, then painted with Creative Inspirations Paint.  Also used a lovely saying stamp from Great Impressions as the main focal point, then finished off with lace, ribbon, a butterfly and pearls. 

Here's a list of supplies I used:
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Butterfly Punch from Martha Stewart
Crystal Stickers Pears
Crochet Thread, Lace, Ribbon
Cardstock: Red, Black, White, Turquoise
Nestabilities: Labels Four
Silhouette Machine

There's a wonderful blog hop prize that's a combined package from both companies featuring a $25 Gift Certificate from Great Impressions and 5 jars of Creative Inspirations Paint.

To quality for the prize:
