Creative Inspirations Special Edition Paints-Blog Hop

   Creative Inspirations Paint is Celebrating their One Year Anniversary!  Molly (CI owner) has just released a special edition set of four paints. The colors are: Ivory, Beige, Burgundy and Denium. These four paints will be available as a set  and individually now through the end of this year- at which time they will be retired.
To Celebrate- we are having a Blog Hop! It is our very first hop as a Design Team- I hope you will join in the fun!  The Hop begins at the Creative Inspirations Blog. I am the second stop- so glad to see you!
Here is the card I made for the celebration:






















and a close-up of the glimmer:

















 The Ivory and Beige are sponged onto white cardstock in addition to Creamy Carmel SU ink. The image is colored with CI paints- special edition colors plus Emerald Green mixed with Sage. The Brads were colored with Burgundy paint. The ribbon was white and was painted with Beige paint.I sponged a light touch of Denium around the edges of the card stock, and to finish off the card, I popped up the bird and the flowers.  I am loving how well the Burgundy coordinates with the SU Rich Razzleberry DSP.
Stamps are SU Spring Song.
 The Blog Hop runs through Wednesday at 12 midnight. You will need to pick up a clue on each stop along the way to answer a question back at the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog when you are finished hopping.  My Clue is B.

The winner will be announce Thursday on the CI blog.  Here is a picture of the prize:















Good Luck to you!
 Your next stop is Clare’s Blog.

I am entering this card in the Gingersnap Paint challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
