Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop

  A new year and a new blog hop the second Saturday of each month. This is going to be so much fun and  I am so hoping I can do this every month. Angie McKenzie does a great job organizing the hop and keeping us all on track! Thanks so much Angie!  Better get yourself a cup of coffee, tea-we have a BIG list of  Stampers joining in on this months hop 35 in all, don't let that stop you from hopping.  If you don't have time to do the whole hop in one sitting then just  do what you can and come back later, we will still be here. 
   The most important NEW in our lives-- 2 new Granddaughters!  I know these two new little people in our family came in November and December of last year (isn't that close enough?) indulge me and let me show you a picture of them,  2 little cousins, 2 weeks apart. I think they are just adorable and I'm certainly NOT prejudiced.

Okay now onto my samples, I have been enjoying playing around with this new set  from Stampin' Up  January-June Mini Catalog - Fine Art Bundle. The large flower is a 3- step stamping process so you can get nice depth in the flower.  The set has 9 sentiments and then the large "just want to say" is a die that can be cut out (right card cut in gold), there is a total of 7 cutting dies.  I did not buy the designer series paper so I made my own back ground paper and used some gold flicks of gold shimmer paint. 
Simple but I think it's striking.
Another set of cards that I made the background paper for.
Well that's it for now.  If your hopping and get lost the full list is below with all the links attached to the name.  If you click  on the Anne Marie Hile  name beside the next blog badge it will take you to her she is on the list after me.  Oh have a fun time hopping :0)
