TCM:: Perfect Paper Crafting Hop

**Please scroll down to see my Day 1 project for the
Lil' Inker Designs November Release!**



The Craft's Meow and Perfect Paper Crafting have teamed up for some mighty inspiration! You should have arrived from Jessica Fick's Blog. (More details on the Hop and the complete hop order can be found on the The Craft's Meow Blog.)

My card today focuses on the stamp set, Hope Blooms. I used the really cool Perfect Paper Crafting Tool Layers #1 to create my mats that framed the stamped and fussy cut flowers. The cool thing about this ruler/tool is that it was easy to create these borders, I think you'll be seeing a lot more matting of images on my future cards! To finish the card, I tied May Arts Burlap String in Natural and Linen, and stamped a sentiment from Hope Blooms.


I hope you enjoy the inspiration along the hop! There are two $50 Gift Certificates to be won... one from Perfect Paper Crafting and one from The Craft's Meow! Winners will be randomly selected by each of the stores from all comments left on hop. You have until midnight PST on Friday, November 22nd, to comment for your chance to win!

Also, just a quick reminder: The Craft's Meow just announced a sale on retiring stamp sets, with prices marked 25%-50%-75% off!!! This is an incredible deal. (Shop early for the best selection. Stock is very limited on most of them, and they will not be restocked once they are sold out.) Check out all the retiring sets here!

Your next stop on the hop is: Eva!
