Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog Hop

Good morning, I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday. It is a big day today, this is the day of the first StampFairy challenge blog hop.  If you have come here from Jane's blog you are right on track, if not, you might want to head over to the StampFairy Challenge Blog as you won't want to miss anything.


Our theme for this week's challenge is a Colour Explosion. Given how grey and drab it is outside, I had so much fun pulling out all my bright papers and embellishments that I have in my craft room.


For my card I have chosen to work with Toby SpringFairy. I have used my Copics and coloured him up in full cheery spring colour. He has been paired up with some of my remaining stash of Scenic Route papers (I always loved the bright colours of this line, miss them). To add some dimension to my card, I have popped up the little flowers on the antennae and added some flowers and bling for embellishment.

You will want to be sure to follow along with the hop, prizes have been hidden among the DT blogs. It order to win, you need to be a follower of the StampFairy Challenge Blog, participate in the current challenge using a StampFairy image and leave a comment on all to the DT blogs along the hop.


I want to thank you for stopping by today, be sure to visit again soon as I have more cards to share this week. I wish you all a bright and cheery day. Now hop along to Sharon who has another great colourful project to share with you.

This card will be entered into the following challenge:

Hi Carissa,

I just love the bright colors in your card and think it's such a fun card, the type that makes you smile as soon as you see it.

I'm very slowly making my way through the hop and it's been a lot of fun to visit all your blogs again!!

Your coloring of that sweet bear is also wonderful! I'm also a huge Copic Fan and love using them on all my cards!!

Good Luck with the HOP and have a wonderful week!!
