Bazzil Card Shoppe

It's Monday again! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine went far too quickly, of course. I can't believe it's the last week of June already.

I have something fun to share with you today. Recently, Bazzil sent me a pack of their new Card Shoppe cardstock to try out. It's 8.5 by 11, 100 lb. and smooth finished. The colors are really bright and fun. Here's the image that shows the variety of shades they carry. (Click on this image to get a closer look.)

 Here are the cards that I created with it. I chose to use Crate's Little Bo Peep line to make a set of baby girl cards.
 This first card uses Candy Heart and Cotton Candy. I found that the cardstock was super easy to use. I added the label sticker and trimmed it. I found that I could very easily cut through it even though it's nice and thick. It didn't bend or crease.
 My next card uses Sour Lemon and Robin's Egg. I embossed it and used my Spellbinders die on it and again, it took it perfectly. I added some chipboard and stickers, too. Isn't that bird image adorable?
 On this last card, I used Cotton Candy as a base.  It coordinates perfectly with Little Bo Peep! I painted and stitched the chipboard frame and added some Stand Outs as embellishments.

Now for the best part! Bazzil not only sent me a pack to play with, they sent me a pack to give away! Just leave me a comment by Wednesday, June 27 and midnight EST to be entered for a chance to win it. You'll get a pack containing two of every color shown above.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! ♥
