Step Right Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the Step Right Up Blog Hop featuring the Showtime Stamp Set. There are about twelve bloggers sharing projects they created with the Showtime Stamp Set. If blog hopping is new to you, we try to keep it easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

Showtime Blog Hop Badge

You should have arrived here from ***Gina's Little Corner of StampinHeaven by Gina McDonald Brandstetter***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

I have seen a few ideas using the Showtime stamp set shared online and they have all used bright, bold colors. While I am a fan of bright, bold colors, I tried to go a different direction. I hope you still find my project appealing.

If you are like me, you still have some pinks out on your desk from your February projects. I should have followed my instinct and gone with a darker ink on the Linen side as you cannot see the background stamping. My mom encouraged me to go with a lighter ink for the stamping so the star die cut and ballerina did not complete with it. Unfortunately this is one time mom did not know best, but the stamping is visible in person. :-)

Before you head to ***Brandi Robinson's crzy4scrapbooking***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the projects I share. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of this card. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with the Showtime stamp set. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Brandi Robinson's crzy4scrapbooking***.
