Create A Smile August Release Blog Hop!

By Taheerah | 7th August 2014 | 31 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday!

I’m back today for a very special occasion – it’s the second release for an awesome new company – Create A Smile Stamps! 🙂

Create A Smile are a new stamps company in town – their first stamps were released in July 2014. The stamps are made of high quality photo-polymer and produced in Germany. They will for sure make you smile! They are releasing two sets TOMORROW! You can find their store at There are TWO fun sets filled with super cute images, available for purchase at 8am CET (2am EST).

Today with have a Blog Hop with a difference – all the designers are creating projects based on a challenge theme suggested by fans of Create A Smile! How cool is that?!

I actually combined a few challenges *wink* – but the one that was my starting point was to create a project using the Create A Smile logo colours. 🙂 Colours can be such a great springboard for creativity can’t they? 🙂

I used the cute little frog from one of the brand new sets, Jungle Fever, and created this:

I just love how cute this is! Don’t the images make you smile?!

I coloured the little frog using the logo colours – using Distress Markers in Evergreen Bough, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs and Worn Lipstick (for the tongue). The tongue was stamped and cut out separately then curled before adhering to the back of the frog image to give him a cute 3D tongue! As always I mixed my water with a little Perfect Pearls for some in-built sparkle!

I also used some of the little clouds from the brand new Your View set, adding some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen for some sparkle. I adhered my frog, clouds and sentiment to a patterned paper tag die cut using the Tremendous Treats die and finished with a thin strip of Pinkfresh Studio Glitter Tape and some twine and I was all done!

So you can’t have a Blog Hop without a giveaway, right?! Read on. 🙂

You can win a $15 gift-certificate for the store – all you need to do is hop along and leave comments on all the fantastic and inspiring stops (one comment per person, per blog please!). We’ll pick random winner from all the comments – so the more blogs you visit (and leave a comment on) – the more chances you have to be a winner!
You have until Saturday August, 9th 8am CET (that’s 2am EST). The winner will be announced on the Create A Smile Blog on Sunday (August 10th).
