VC Rocks Blog Hop

Welcome to the 5th stop on VC Rocks' first Blog Hop. I've been a part of VC Rocks since 2006 and come back every year to enjoy the friendships, talent, swaps and challenges. You probably arrived here from The Love of Stamping. If you didn't, you can go to the VC Rocks blog to start at the beginning.

I made a card using colors that are retiring.


Stamps: Inspired by Nature, All Holidays

CS: Naturals Ivory, Kraft, Green Galore, Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Green Galore

Markers: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Green Galore

Misc.: Scallop Edge punch, Photo Corners punch, Ice Squares Rhinestone brads, mat pack, paper piercing tool, Very Vanilla 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals, adhesive of choice


  1. Use the scallop edge punch on Close to Cocoa CS (measures 2-1/8 x 4 after punched)
  2. Mount Green Galore (1-3/4 x 4) onto Cocoa CS; tie on Very Vanilla ribbon with the knot to the left.
  3. Punch the photo corner from a scrap piece of Close to Cocoa CS. Using the mat pack and piercing tool, pierce the smaller corner.
  4. Color your image with markers and stamp onto Naturals Ivory CS (2-1/4 x 2-7/8). I did each flower individually, not wanting to use the larger flower.
  5. Ink up the grass with Green Galore and stamp off on scrap paper and then stamp onto your main image.
  6. Mount the Naturals Ivory onto Ruby Red (2-1/2 x 3-1/8) and adhere photo corner.
  7. Stamp sentiment in the bottom right corner in Chocolate Chip.
  8. Mount green/cocoa layer and the stamp image layers to Kraft CS (5-1/4 x 4). Decide where you want your brads and attach them. Mount Kraft layer to Natural Ivory card base.

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop on the tour is The Weekend Stamper. Enjoy!
