Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Katie Skiff, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

This hop features a variety of products from the newly released Seasonal Expressions 1 idea book.  I am so excited for this hop because there are so many fun new products in this release.  I couldn't wait to play!!  Back in November, when Monica from CTMH shared a sneak peak look at the SE1 book during a Periscope from Creative Life, I immediately fell in LOVE with the sweet little pirate in the Pirate Birthday stamp set.  He is so cute!!  And the Regatta collection... *sigh*... be still my heart!!  I have had a major soft spot for all things nautical since I was younger.

So it should come as no surprise that for today's project, I chose to play with the new Regatta paper packet and the new Pirate birthday stamp set.  To color the pirate, I used one of my favorite stamping techniques -- watercoloring with a blending pen.  This technique allows me to perfectly match any color without having to have a full set of markers.  I simply use my stamp pads and the blending pen.  For more details on how I achieve this technique, please visit my December 6th post where I talked it through in length.
