Loves Rubberstamps - Sensational Sunday Inspiration Blog Hop

Happy Easter to all of you!

Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps weekly Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for your Inspiration. Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $10 Loves Rubberstamps store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love for the Designers! You have until Saturday, April 6th, at 8pm CST. Have fun and we hope that you enjoy the hop!
If you've arrived here from Dangina's blog you are right on track! If not, I have posted the whole blog hop list below just in case you get lost along the way!

I have had a few different projects for this Sunday and I have scrapped them all, just not feeling them if you know what I mean.  But, I finally came up with this...  A fun little gift card holder to share with someone special.  I have used a Whimsy Wee Stamp called LOVE-TRIP.  They look so in love, don't they?  I used my copics to color the sweeties up.  It is stamped with Tuexedo Black Memento ink on cryogen paper.  The background papers are by My Minds Eye and Reflections.  I finished the outside off with a few flowers, ribbon and a heart charm.  The card is actually a pocket.

The inside is cut and folded a few times and punched with a scalloped edge EK Success punch.  I added some pearls, a gem stone button and some ribbon.  I used a pin to hold a cute little sentiment by Stampavie.  I also inked the background of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed.

Copics used:
BG13, BG15, BG49, C1, C3, C7, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, 
Y00, Y04, Yo6, YR61, YR65, YR68

Your next stop on the hop is Shanna!
