La-La Land Crafts' Fairy Tale Release Blog Hop
Welcome to La-La Land Crafts' Fairy Tale Release Blog Hop! To celebrate the release of our new Princess Rosie stamp, we are giving her the royal treatment that she deserves. Every member of our Design Team and the Guest Designers have made their cards with Princess Rosie which we are now showing on our blogs. To make the Blog Hop even more fun, along with the cards you will find some clues (a secret word or two) on every blog. When you follow the order of the Blog Hop and get to the end, you will have collected all of the words and will be able to put them together into a sentence. When you are done, you will need to go back to the La-La Land Crafts Blog and leave a comment on the Fairy Tale Blog Hop post.
If you came to me from Katie's blog, then you're on the right track! If not, then you'll want to go back and start at the La-La Land Crafts blog and hop to all the stops!
What's in it for you?
Besides seeing all the gorgeous cards from our Design Team, the winner of the Blog Hop will receive the newly released Princess Rosie stamp along with these goodies:

And now, it's time for my card!
I stamped Rosie twice and colored with Copics. For the bottom layer, I cut her out, leaving out the crown and the hand on the right side (they're so small, they just didn't look right under the top layer). For the top layer, I cut her out, leaving out the bottom ruffle of the dress and her legs and shoes.
For the extra ruffle, I did a running stitch on a piece of ribbon and then gathered it and glued/taped it to the bottom Rosie. You can see it a little better in this close shot:
I also added a bunch of tiny rhinestones and glitter pen to Rosie and the patterned paper. The papers are from Imaginisce and the sketch is from Unscripted. I hope you like it!
My secret words are "the courage." The next stop on the Hop is the fabulously talented Kristine. Thanks very much for joining us for our Blog Hop!
