InStyle Stamps Blog Hop

Today is a special day...the very first Blog Hop for InStyle Stamps and the Design Team has quite a bit to show! We were all challenged to use InStyle Stamp images to alter something and create a home decor item. I altered a tin I bought at Joanne's over a year ago. I covered it with designer paper and accented it with Groovy Guava Double Stitched ribbon. I am going to use it to hold bath products and this would also be a great gift idea too ...who doesn't enjoy a little Bath and Body Works products?
We all need a little pampering, right ? :o)

I stamped Sheree using Memento Black on Whisper White cardstock and then stamped it again on a piece designer paper to paper piece the tub. I colored the rest of the image with Copics. I also altered a tin candle with the matching designer paper and added a sentiment from another Polka Dots and Paisley (a retired SU set).

"Relax" was stamped using the Whimsical Alphabet and I popped it up on dimensionals. This came together very nicely and I am quite pleased :o) I added some foot cream and socks, because with warmer weather coming, the feet need extra pampering too. I am ready to get trade in the socks and shoes for flip flops!

The rest of the Design Team has some amazing projects to share so be sure to check them out! You will see a list of them on the right of my blog... I know that they have been busy creating and look forward to checking them out myself!
