My Favorite CropStop Goodies

Hello, my creative friends!  I'm posting a card today that I created for CropStop.  They carry so many sweet products including inks, stamps, die-cuts, and SO much more.  It's a great place to pick up all your basic creative supplies, and a few "special goodies" to boot!
I created this sweet card by using some Crate Paper patterned papers and chipboard that I inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  The Tim Holtz Distress inks are all currently BUY ONE, GET ONE 50% OFF at the CropStop.  Just use the link above to check out ALL the great colors available.  Then, I added some lovely wool felt flowers that were cut using a favorite My Favorite Things/Die-Namics Die Cut, which are all currently 20% OFF at CropStop.  And finally, the sentiment (Family) is a super sweet JilliBean Soup metal word, which makes it super easy to add your sentiment.
You can see a close-up photo of my wool felt flowers.  I added several sweet sequins to the centers of the flowers, along with some tiny pearl stickers in the centers to give my flowers a soft, sparkly look.  I absolutely LOVE sequins, wool felt, and all things sparkly.  You can also see another sequin as a "dot" on my i in the world family.
You may also notice that I used some vintage scotch tape from Vintage Street Market (which has gone out of business, much to my dismay).  I love using this tape on my Crate Paper projects because it has the vintage tape look printed on the papers, so I place the tape right over it; and I just LOVE this vintage look.

I am sharing my card in a few challenges that I love.  Here they are:

Pile It On Challenge Blog - Challenge #80 - Add Sequins And/Or Beads - I added LOTS of lovely sequins to the centers of my wool felt flowers.  They add SO much sparkle and fun to everything!

Stamp & Create August Challenge - One For The Girls.  I think that this card with all the lovely felt flowers and sequins is really a great "girly" card.  I'm sending it to my Mom.

DL Art August Challenge - Anything Goes

Virginia's View Challenge #17 - Embellishments - I absolutely LOVE embellishments.  They are what make our cards special.  On this one, I used wool felt to create flowers that I placed tiny sequins with mini pearl stickers in the centers of to embellish them.  I also added vintage tape to my frame.   Embellishments ROCK!

Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I really do hope that you will visit the CropStop store, and come by to play along in our current challenge on the CropStop Blog.  We would LOVE to have you join us.
