Blooming Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for joining us for our March Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop! Temperatures are on the rise and there is just one short week until the official first day of Spring! We are all so ready to put away our snowflakes and break out the flowers in our craft rooms! Stampin' Up! has so many options for Spring-time flowers and we are showing you just a few of those today!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 13 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Tonya B. of Stampin' with Tonya.

If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below my post.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

I don't know about you, but I am SO over this winter.  I am over the cold, the snow, the ice, and the kids being home randomly from school.  
This mamma is READY for Spring!!

One of the amazing benefits of having My Digital Studio is being able to do some AWESOME things with our already amazing products!
For example:  Love that DSP in the Sweet Sorbet collection, but need it to be a little worries!  You can change a lot about it!  You can change the color, intensity, and even size of the design!  

Check this out:

See any purple in this Sweet Sorbet paper pack?  NOPE!  But thanks to MDS, I was able to use the paper by recoloring it Perfect Plum, zooming in, and making the pattern smaller.   AHHHHHHH  flexing those creative muscles is fun!  The stamp brush set in the middle is the Happy Watercolor being able to recolor, crop, and change the sizes is easy peasy!

Now this:

I couldn't find a background paper that I liked.  So I just made my own!  I used the Happy Watercolor stamp brush set, and used a rainbow of different colors....and VOILA!  
Do you see those super cute paper rosettes?!  LOVE!  and the fun pom pom flower?  Embellishments make all the difference!

Best part of all this:   If I really wanted to, I could take the background paper, print it out on my home computer on some Whisper White cardstock and totally use it on a card or a tag!  Yes!  I am now a paper designer.  

Not bad for a bed ridden couch potato.  Perhaps I will infirm for yet another week.  

Just think of the thinks we could think!  
Thanks for stopping by!  You're headed to Jamie's blog now.

If you wanna revisit any of the other blogs:  Here's the full list.  Have a great day!
