Happy Birthday SA Blog Hop!


Welcome to another Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop! Stampin' Addicts is 2 years old already, can you believe it?! We all wanted to celebrate it with everyone so we are going to share some of our favorite techniques with you all and have a lot of fun doing it :)

If you started at the beginning of the hop, then you probably just came from Rhonda's blog The Stampin Bunny where she shares some Baby Wipe creativity. So cute!!

I will be showing you some projects featuring the Faux Reverse Letterpress technique. I LOVE this technique. It has drama and texture. What more could I ask for?!




My #3 child, Dakota, turns 19 in a couple weeks. I couldn't resist making a birthday banner for him using the Petal Cone die. This is only one quarter of the banner. I wanted you to be able to see the details. Lots of bold color and fun masculine textures here :) 



And Dakota loves to cook and to try to come up with his own recipes. I found this blank notebook at a local print shop for $1.50 and knew I had to use it for this project. So this is one of the things he will get for his birthday :)


 And how about a little Easter carrot? This is with the Petal Cone die again. Don't you love how the woodgrain texture plate with tone on tone Peach Parfait give it such a great texture?


 And last but not least, here is a project I have been meaning to do for months now. I thought it would be a really time consuming project, but I made this one in less than an hour!
Check back later this week for more info on recipes and instructions on these projects!

And on with the show! If you would like to see the roll call and links to all of the blogs in one spot, go here. The next stop is Mary's blog where she will be featuring Shimmer Paint. Oh, man! I love that stuff too!!

I need to try this technique! Have seen it many times, but just haven't taken the time to do so - thanks for the nudge! Love the projects - esp. the "Secret Recipe" notebook. May have to make one for my 15 yoa experimenter!

Love all your projects! I am really glad you showed making a banner with the petal cone. I've been wanting the pennant die for that for a long time, but I've also been wanting the petal cone....nice to know I can do banners with the petal cone.
