Happy Hopping!


Here is my creation. I used the Momenta Creative Canvas along with some brand new Clearsnap Scentz embossing powder, and Stephanie Barnard spray ink. I loved how simple and classy this black and white creative canvas was, so I decided to use it for our anniversary photo and give it a little punch with my favorite color - purple!

I cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the back of the canvas and create a stable stamping surface, then I stamped with Top Boss embossing ink and heat embossed with the new Scentz embossing powder in Grape.

For the frame, I masked the white stripe off with plain old masking tape and then misted with Stephanie Barnard spray ink in Grape. I also sprayed the letter stickers with the spray ink. The photo corners, round chipboard and jewels came with the creative canvas set and provide the perfect simply elegant accents.
