Spread joy not germs blog hop!

Hello!

Welcome to the Spread Joy Not Germs special blog hop hosted by Catherine Pooler and Hedgehog Hollow! Thirty-one companies are participating with more than 50 prizes and over 150 crafty bloggers all coming together to help spread a little joy one card at a time! There are a lot of stops on this hop but the more comments you leave on the blogs, the more chances you have to win prizes. The deadline to enter is April 24 and winners will be announced on Monday, April 27 on the Catherine Pooler Designs and Hedgehog Hollow blogs.

I am participating with The Greeting Farm today and sharing another BRAND NEW DIGI SET that is hitting the TGF store today called Front Porch. With this latest set you can easily layer all the latest social distancing digis to create fun indoor/outdoor scenes between the different characters. For my card I actually did a bit of mixing and matching between clear stamps and digis. First I stamped up the new Gift Ian FB using the back side of Ian and the little teddy bear that also comes in the set, then I masked him off before printing this porch scene with Quarantine Life Anya over him. Once the mask was removed it totally looked like Ian was stopping by to check on his friend from a safe distance. Because I was working with a larger clear stamp to start, all of the digi elements had to be pretty large as well so I decided to make a slimline card to fit everything on into the scene. The Scalloped Card Panels and Banners die set from Trinity Stamps (another wonderful hop sponsor) was just what I needed to give this slimline scene a pretty decorative edge.

Now you will want to head over to Pear Blossom Press for the next stop on the hop.
Thanks so much for stopping by, stay safe and stay crafty my friends!

Amy, I haven't seen a card I like better so far that truly sums up the world situation right now & how we should be with eachother. I adore this!! I don't know how you incorporated a digi stamp, which I've never used, with a "real" stamp, but you did it beautifully. And the fact that the little guy on the porch is holding a teddy gave me a melty feeling & a smile. Thanks!
