Welcome to the first stop on the VC_Rocks blog hop! You most likely arrived here from the VC_Rocks blog. This is our third hop this summer and do we ever have some great projects to share with you! There are 31 stops along the way with several projects on the VC_Rocks blog. Many of the projects feature products from the current Summer Mini catalog while others have brand new products from the 2010-11 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog! If you should get lost along the way, links to all the participating blogs can be found here. My project is a birthday card made with the Fast and Fabulous hostess set from the new catalog. To make this card, emboss Elegant Eggplant card stock with the new Vintage Wallpaper folder and add a piece of Daffodil Delight (new color!) gross grain ribbon. Adhere to Whisper White card base. Stamp the flower images on Whisper White card stock using Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black ink. Stamp a sentiment from the set Watercolor Trio (in the Summer Mini catalog) on Whisper White card stock with Elegant Eggplant ink. Mat both stamped pieces on Daffodil Delight card stock. Simple but stunning. Card design by Jan Knecht.

The next stop on the hop is the blog of Mary Campbell. Just wait until you see what she has for you!! Enjoy!

The Eggplant looks very rich with the embossing.
