Hampton Art / Echo Park Paper Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Hampton Art / Echo Park Paper Blog Hop! Echo Park has teamed up with Hampton Art to bring you some great stamp sets and today we are showcasing them in this blog hop. So visit all of our talented designers' blogs along with the Hampton Arts and Echo Park blogs for a chance to win some great products.

For a chance to win either a stamp prize from Hampton Art or one of three collection kits from Echo Park Paper, please continue on the blog hop leaving a comment on each blog. Winners will be selected and announced both on the Echo Park Paper and Hampton Art blogs on Monday, April 29th. All comments are due by Sunday, April 28th at midnight EDT to qualify. The blog links are below

Now for my project. I used the Echo Park Paper "Oh Snap" Mini Theme collection along with the "Oh Snap" stamp set.  I also used this awesome May Arts ribbon in just the right coral color to coordinate. My son took this fantastic photo of Figaro when he was a kitten so the Oh Snap collection was just what I needed.



I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the doily design, cut it out and layered it to create an embellishment as well as a large scalloped border. The circle camera stamp in the upper left is just stamped with black ink to make a little embellishment and I stamped with a coral color for the chevron arrow designs on the background. 










Thanks for stopping by, now Have Fun Hopping!
