My Sweet Petunia and Joy Clair Swap Hop

Good Afternoon everyone
It is time for another blog hop, and a blog hop means some giveaways. 
Today I am excited to say that we are collaborating with Joy Clair Stamps.

To celebrate, there is a giveaway. From My Sweet Petunia a choice of the Mini or Original Misti, and there are 2 gift certificates of $25.00 each from Joy Clair to be won.  On April 14th the Misti winner will be announced here, and the Joy Craft winners will be announced here
So be sure to visit the fabulous designer's from
 each team and leave a comment for your chance 
to win. (one comment per blog)
I made a couple cards for today's hop. The first using the toadally adorable Hoppy Birthday.
I stamped the image using my Misti and the new Creative Corners.  I am using water colour paper here, and I had already die cut the oval for the sentiment portion of the card. 

Once the image was stamped I placed it back in my Misti and water coloured using my Zig brushes. I use the Creative Corners to secure the paper as I paint.
 
My finished card. I added the background paper and the sentiment, along with a second balloon attached with a foam dot and painted with Wink of Stella, along with my trademark sequins. 

For my second card I used the delightful Hugs and Smiles Stamp Set. 

I photographed as I did the card, starting in the upper left I decided on my layout and colours. I decided I would fussy cut the flowers, so heat embossed the image on a piece of scrap water colour paper using white embossing powder. I coloured with Zig Brushes, then fussy cut the flowers. I die cut a piece of Neenah cardstock, using stitched rectangles and arranged where the flowers would be before proceeding to brush on yellow ink for my background colour. Once I was happy with that, I attached the flower panel to the Neenah and then to the card base. 
I added the sentiment, with part on a label die cut, and a few sequins to finish my card. 
I hope you enjoy these cards and my process. 

Thanks for stopping by and now it is time for you to head to Donna's blog.

Following is the list for the hop. Be sure to comment on each blog for your chance to win.
