echo park + imagine crafts blog hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to this stop on the Echo Park Paper and Imagine Crafts Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to choose ink colors to coordinate with the "Magical Adventure" collection!

 Don't you just love it when you can find ink colors that match paper colors perfectly??

 I used the yellow ink to stamp the stars on the top of the label:

And I used the red ink to stamp the word "magic" in the bottom of the label - both before adding the "birthday" die cut:

I also used these three ink colors, along with these awesome letter stamps, to add the recipients name to the tag for the envelope:

Now, it's really really hard to tell in the photos, but I sprayed this amazing shimmer spray to the front of the card - I tried to get the light just right so you could see it:

Can you tell?  Trust me, it's all sparkly and fun...just not easy to photograph.

Now, be sure to leave a comment on this blog post, before hopping along to the next blog, for a chance to win this incredible prize package!

After you say hello, follow along to the next blog on the list - I'm sure you're going to find lots of inspiration as you go!  Good luck!
