Welcome to the VC Rocks Blog Hop!  
The blog hop runs Saturday the 16th  thru Sunday the 17th and I am number 22 on the blog hop!  If you are going in order, you have come from Stampin' at Dawn , if you get lost you can always go to the VCRocks home page and there you will find a complete list of blogs that are participating in this hop. 
The theme is any size cards, so I did two different shaped cards and one standard size.

The first card I cased from someone that didn't put their name on their photo so I can't give credit to who did this but it's one of my favorites. This is card is called a middle-step card, the second picture lets you see it from the side.   
I don't really have any masculine designer series paper so I had to used some retired.  The Card Base is Pacific Point card stock, I used retired Jersey Shore Designer Series Paper for the layer, I cut the top two layers with the Labels Collection Framelits and embossed the Whisper White layer with our new Argyle embossing folder.  I then inked up the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set in Pacific Point and stamped on Whisper White card stock then cut the letters out and used dimensionals to adhere them to my card.  I used the Decorative Label punch (I got the instructions on Patty Bennett's blog)  to make the little embellishments for the words best ever, which I had my husband hand write, he has better handwriting than I do.  I cut two 1 1/4" x 12" strips of the Jersey Shore DSP and used my Simply Scoring Score Tool and scored it every 1/2" then accordion folded them and adhere them end to end to make the lollies.  


 


The next card I used the new Floral Frames Framelits to cut the card base from Tangerine Tango.  Then cut the layers out of Whisper White, Floral District Designers Series paper, Baja Breeze, and Daffodil Delight card stock.  I then put an antique brad for the center and topped it with Daffodil Delight 1/4" stitched Grosgrain ribbon.  No stamping required to make this card!  Which is very rare for me!  



The final card is the standard size card.  The card base is Raspberry Ripple with a Chocolate Chip layer.  I stamped the bottom part of the flower in Raspberry Ripple, which came from the Reason to Smile stamp set, which is only $5 when you spend $50 worth of product in the month of June, then I inked up the top layer of the flower in Chocolate Chip.  The saying is from Blessing from Heaven stamp set and then I used the Word Window punch to punch out a piece of Chocolate Chip and added an In Color Dahlias to the end.  The butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri set.  Then finished it with 3/8" Stitched Raspberry Ripple Satin Ribbon.  I cased this card from somebody on Stampin Connection, I just changed the color scheme. 


I really hope you liked all my projects! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think! I do try to update my blog at least every week so please come back and always let me know what you think!

 Now off to stop #23 which is Something to Scrap about.  I hope you enjoy your hopping!  This is an amazing group of people and they do amazing work!

  4. So hard to pick a favorite, but your stair step is the winner for me. I like how you used the rosette under your focal piece to make it stand out even more. Great idea!
