Scrapbook Boutique May Blog Hop and Inspiration Challenge


Hello, 


It's time for another BLOG HOP and Inspirational Challenge from Scrapbook Boutique . 

The Hop starts and ends at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.  If you're following along you should have arrived from Narelle's blog and when you leave me you hop over to Therese's Blog.

The hop is open for one week, closing at midday Saturday 17th May. 
To be eligible to win the prize, leave a comment on each of the blogs, with the SB blog being the last one.  The random winner will be drawn from the  SB blog and announced on Sunday 18th.

Unfortunately the blog hop prize (and the inspiration challenge) are only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.

Join the Blog Hop and you could be the lucky person to receive

For my card I had fun with one of my NEW tools from Scrapbook Boutique.....The distress marker spritzer from Tim Holtz.  This great tool can be used with your Copics too, or for that matter any other marker you might own. Just adjust the screw to hold your marker in the right position.




  • I spritzed spiced marmalade, scattered straw and vintage photo over a white card base adding a spray of Mr Huey's calico shine for a little sparkle. Rounding the bottom corners before
  • Layering some embossed chestnut card over yellow card. 
  • Die cut Fresh Foliage from orange card, trimming the foliage before adhering to embossed card.
  • Stamp the sentiment to white card trim to size before adhering to card front popping one leaf over the white panel. Add a yellow heart.
  • Adhere the completed panel to the base card using adhesive foam squares.


Thanks for dropping by now on with the hop...................

Gorgeous card Sue, I love the background you created with the lovely embossing. The leaf die just stands out beautiful with the embossing background.

Might have to get one of those tools! Especially if you can use with any markers. Better value than lots of sprays - no double ups.
Love the effect on your card.
Hope you have a wonderful (pain free) weekend and thank you for your message.
