BRI #Hashtag Stamps Blog Hop - #thestruggleisreal

Hello, friends! I am SUPER excited to be sharing this very fun stamp set! You see, two of my favorite people came together to make it happen and it is now exclusively available at Butterfly Reflections Ink! We are going a blog hop to show it off a bit today. My card design is a simple one, as per usual, but I LOVE IT! (Perhaps, also, as per usual?) I combined the new exclusive #hashtag stamp set with the absolutely gorgeous Christian Greetings stamp set to create my card. Ummm... yes, I may or may not have chosen Joscie's favorite color on purpose. I would have added a 77 for Vanessa, but, to be honest...I couldn't figure out how to make that happen. HA!


If you came from Gladys' blog, you are already having an awesome time! If you just stumbled on our little hop, I am actually the final stop, you so will want to head to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to start from the top!

What's in it for you, you ask? Well, how about some FREE STAMPS! To be eligible to win one of two prizes: The 4x6 #Hashtag stamp set OR the 3x4 #Hashtag Bossy Stamp Set simply leave a comment on each of the blogs by 26 December at noon Eastern time. Winners will be announced on 27 December on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog.

Happy Hopping!

I created this super fun card using a slightly less traditional color scheme. I absolutely LOVE this Very Merry stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and used a couple of washi tapes in black and gold to get a cool, modern vibe. Spectrum Noir's Glitter brush pens added the perfect sparkle to the ornaments and the stars!
