BLOG TOUR - MAY 15th & 16th

Welcome!
Tour #6 - Stop 8
Featured Set: Good Friend
Welcome to my blog! My name is Kendra Richardson & I LOVE to
stamp and scrapbook. I post regularly every week...so come on back anytime.I hope you enjoy the projects I've made using the Good Friend Set.

Just click on any of the pictures to enlarge them!



This set uses our Carousel Notes that come with Chocolate Chip Envelopes. I love the ribbons from our Ribbon Origionals! They are so vibrant and add the perfect embellishment. Another new favorite of mine are our Corduroy Buttons...LOVE THEM!










This 3x3 card uses our Textured Cardstock - in Chocolate Chip, and Baja Breeze Cardstock. I also used the mat pack and paper piercer for a nice detail. Other embellishments include; slot punch and Pumpkin Pie Ribbon, Earth Element Brad and 3/4" circle punch.










I made a small box using Cardstock and Designer Paper in Good Morning Sunshine, which coordinates so beautifully with this set. I then made (8) tags that go into the box for the perfect gift! (2 are in the box!)








This is a 6x6 scrapbook page. I used Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Basic Black, and Bordering Blue Cardstock. The bird is stamped upside down on paper and cut out to create a whale. Use the flower for the spout. I also used a rhinestone for his eye. This is a great way to highlight a trip to Sea World!








I used Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White Cardstock. Don't you just LOVE these new Flower Brads we carry! They add so much to a card or page. I also used DSP in Good Morning Sunshine, the Scalloped Edge Punch, and Chocolate Chip Ribbon. This idea came from my own blog hopping, I just wish I could remember the talented stamper I cased this from!












This card uses Pretty in Pink, Certaily Celery and Whisper White Cardstock. I used Dimensionals to pop the the flowers off the card, and Pretty In Pink Ribbon. This gives you a new way of looking at this set using softer colors.








And finally, this card is a 6x6 card. It uses the DSP-Good Morning Sunshine and our On Board So Tweet, which I covered the body, wing, and tail in DSP. The beak and feet, I used a sponge and Pumpkin Pie Ink. I stamped directly onto the DSP and used a rhinestone for my birdie's eye.
