It's a Gracie Blog Hop!

This week on Tuesday Throwdown with Sherrod Studio, we are revisiting the Gracie stamp set and having a hop! Our challenge this week from the hostess with the mostest, Ms. Leah, was to create our own patterned paper using this set. So we invite you to hop along with us, check out all of the great artwork the team came up with and then play along by creating your own background/patterned paper.....oh, and the best part? You might just win a fabulous blog candy package just by leaving a comment at the Sherrod Studio blog!!

What a great package of goodies, including the set we are using today - Gracie!

Here's my card:

I used the teddy image from the set and random stamped him using Memento brown ink onto kraft cardstock. I colored just a little of him (his tummy and a few other highlights in brown and his bow in red) and added a little white gel pen highlight to his tummy. I also stamped the sentiment Hugs 'n Kisses (also from this set) in white ink as well as a tiny heart (from a different set) in red ink.

I then cut a band of red cardstock that was punched along the top and bottom edges with a Martha Stewart punch and covered that with a piece of white/cream lace. The whole thing was mounted to a cream card base. And last but not least, I added the metal tags at the bottom with the "X" and the "O".

I think this would be a great Valentine's card for a special child - or anyone for that matter!

Here's the list of the rest of the DT so you can finish hopping:


So get on hoppin'! And don't forget to leave a comment at the Sherrod Studio blog for a chance to win that prize package!! And remember, all stamps are still 40% off at Sherrod Studio so get them while you can at these ridiculously low prices!!

Until tomorrow -
