It's A Blog Hop...........Gotta Show Some Bling!!!

Smiley from

Welcome to the OBG Hop..........that's right........Oldies But Goodies!!!!!  You should be coming here from the very sweet Carolyn Bounds!!  We were to use a stamp/image that has been neglected for at least 6 months....dare I admit just how many of those I have???  LOL

So I looked thru lots of my stamps and this one jumped out at me!  I do so LOVE Melanie Muenchinger's stamps at Gina K. Designs......and this one is definitely one of my faves!!!

This set is called A Beautiful Life and it's one of my faves!!!  I used a technique to glitter the entire panel after coloring with Copics.  I used Pure Luxury cardstock and totally had to bling it up some more with little pearls around the oval frame.  Some pop of color with the little honeybees that are popped up on the flowers.  I used the Swiss Dots CB folder and inked the edge of the white layer with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress ink.

Speaking of the UBER talented Melanie Muenchinger..........I just HAVE to share this.....a tv show called Scrapbook Memories TV did a couple episodes featuring some of Melanie's GORGEOUS stamp sets!!!!!  Here are the links to the 2 episodes on You Tube:

I hope you are enjoying the hop....the next stop is the wonderful Tenia Nelson and check out more fabulous OBG designs!!!
