Lollydoodle Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Diva Lollydoodle Blog Hop!!

If you’ve come from Cydney Fowler’s blog, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

I love the fun, whimsy, girlish feel of the Lollydoodle Paper Packet, but being the mom of a little boy it can be challenge. I do have two sweet nieces and one of them just celebrated her 5th birthday, so I went immediately to this paper packet!!

CTMH: Lollydoodle

Starting with a traditional white card base, I added multiple layers of B&T Duos™ from the Lollydoodle Paper Packet. Next come the stamp sets!! And seriously, how adorable is that owl?!? It comes from the new Owls Stamp Set, and is paper pieced together using Cotton Candy Cardstock, Pear Cardstock, Slate Cardstock, and White Daisy Cardstock. The next stamp sets are two of my faves in the new Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book. The banner is cut using the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge and comes from the Oodles of Doodles Stamp Set in Pear Exclusive Ink™. The sentiment comes from Belated Birthday Stamp Set {Yes, yes…I’m a bad aunt and am getting this birthday card to her a little late! But as the sentiment says on the inside of the card she is getting to celebrate her birthday longer now!!!} and is stamped in Cocoa Exclusive Ink™. To add a little flare to this card I added a few pink Flamigo Dots at the base of the B&T Duos™.

You Are The….

Saturday is one of my favorite days!! I usually can sneak away into my craft room for an hour or so to create. My son usually sneaks in there with me pulling some of his toys from his toy room next door, and takes up camp in my craft room with me. We usually take a break from our playing, him with his toys and me with my papercrafting, to read a book he pulls off the bookshelf. I cherish these moments because I know very soon he will outgrow this phase.

Today I was working on the most recent sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Here is my rendition:

CTMH: Lollydoodle Created by Kelly Janes

Using Slate Cardstock for the base, I added a layer of Lollydoodle B&T. The sentiment is from the Lollydoodle Workshop On The Go™ Cardmaking Kit stamped in Slate Exclusive Ink™ and Hollyhock Exclusive Ink™.  Have you heard the news? CTMH has added dry embossing folders, including a chevron design, to their great products!! I am patiently awaiting my next CTMH order to arrive on my doorstep that contains the NEW embossing folders, but until it arrives I used a Lifestyles Craft dry embossing folder on a layer of Lagoon Cardstock. I also added two strips of Black & Grey Glitter Paper to this card. To finish the card I added a few Aqua Dots!

  This is one of my favorite sentiments in the entire Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book, and this card is also linked to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Love.
