Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop

Today I am happy-as-a-clam to be a part of the Lily Pad Cards’ First Birthday blog hop. Lily Pad is a great site for card making ideas and is brought to us by the awesome folks of InLinkz. (That is the service that does those fun supply list thumbnails at the end of blog posts.) I adore them, so I am happy to help them celebrate!

To celebrate, there are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300. These prizes will be randomly given. To be eligible, just “like” Lily Pad on Facebook. If you would like to better your chances or don’t have a Facebook account, you can also leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop (including Lily Pad). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).

So, how about a birthday card idea to celebrate Lily Pad’s 1st birthday? Here is mine…

I used a fun mask, some white heat embossing, Distress Markers and a pearlized water mist to create this. Stay tuned – I will have a video here very soon explaining how this is done. I love how well Distress Markers blend with water. (Distress Inks and Stains would work here, too.) And that button? Love that button. It is from Close To My Heart.

Supplies are listed below.

Be sure to head over to Deborah Nolan’s blog next. If you hit a bad link, you can always go back to Lily Pad to view the master list of blog links.

Happy Sunday!

    Love the rainbow colors! Anything rainbow is aces in my book! :) And the white emboss resist is awesome. Can’t wait to try this when I get my new distress markers! I always shy away from large images/masks but this is a great idea. I’ll have to try it…

    I’ve begun following scrapbook blogs in the past few months. I sure have seen that you’re involved with a lot of things online. When I see your name, I will always check it out.
