Lindy's Stamp Gang's Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Lindy's Birthday Blog Hop!!!
We are so excited you joined us. April 27th is Lindy's Birthday and to celebrate we're giving away Birthday presents. The design team has been busy creating some birthday inspired projects for you.

Hop and sale start now through May 4th @ midnight.

Lets get down to it, you want to know what the prizes are don't you?
The Birthday presents will be hidden in the design teams blog posts so make sure to comment on each blog post. There is a list (with links) at the bottom of this post so keep this page open in case you get lost.
Here are presents!

First up is our designer Cynthialoowho with her Birthday Princess Crown!

These are so fun and easy to make. 
I used some beautiful Venice lace. I mixed 2 parts school glue to 1 part water and dipped the lace in till it was completely saturated. I then went over the lace with a paint brush to clean out any spaces. I used my heat gun to dry. Once it was dry and kind of stiff I used Versamark and Angel Wings Mauve 2 toned embossing powder and heat set.

I then added embellishments and formed the crown.
Here are some others I made.

I colored the lace with Dark Chocolate Truffle Starburst, then I went over it with Versamark and Twilight Bronze Slate 2 toned embossing powder and heat set.

I hope you like my project and try it. There are so many possibilities with Lindy's Stamp Gang 2 toned embossing powders.
We are also having a sale all week!
20% off everything!!!

Next up is Jessica

Email glitch

Please ignore any "ORDER STATUS CHANGE" emails from us, (unless you just ordered). Our website decided to email everyone that their order had "shipped", even if they ordered a year ago! AHHHHHH! Darn technology!
Sorry if we made you panic!

Create your own photo props with Jessica Griffin

One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I've recently started photographing newborns but found it's a very expensive hobby to keep up with, much like paper crafting! I really like incorporating a solid color into each photo, having Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays really helps me add variety to my bucket of props, with out costing me a fortune. 

I started thinking about the several ways I can use my LSG products and remembered I have a bunch of Dritz Cheesecloth! I started by putting the Cheesecloth in a bowl of cold water, just to rinse it out, wash it off. Really, just to saturate it before adding the color. Once the cheesecloth is saturated, I added my choice of color to the bowl of cold water. Usually I determine the color I'm going to use, by matching it to the props I'll be using. 

If I'm using a blanket, I'll put the colors on the blanket to see what matches best.  

The green I choose matched the ornaments perfectly! I had originally picked the green based on the blanket, but, it looked so great with the ornaments, I couldn't pass the opportunity for a Christmas shot. Especially since this little guy IS a Christmas baby! 

How do you use your Lindy's Stamp Gang products?

Thanks for stopping by!
