Happy Little Stampers - Blog Hop 2

Good evening all.

The patient is recovering on a double dose of antibiotics thank goodness....he's spent all weekend watching the Harry Potter films back to back - don't think I can take any more of it!

Kylie has a second release of six sets of stamps over at Happy Little Stampers and guess what....we're having a blog hop to celebrate.


How to win?
Comment on the HLS blog and then continue to our designers. You must comment on all the blogs in the hop to be eligible for prizes.

I've got three cards to share with you so best get a cuppa and make yourself comfortable before we start!

You should have arrived here from Anita's blog. If you get lost, don't despair...just start back at the Happy Little Stampers blog.


The first two cards use stamps from the Thinking of You set, I love that script background stamp and it's found its way onto all three of my cards! I stamped and heat embossed with gold detail EP, fussy cutting the little butterfly and adding it with a little foam pad to give some dimension. Dies from Spellbinders.

Challenges entered:
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Crafting with Friends - anything goes
Simply Papercraft - anything goes


Same set using the Thank You sentiment...I used a labels die cut to mask off an area of my card then overstamped the script in lilac. Thank You was then stamped in purple ink and I added a heart gem to finish. Dies from Spellbinders.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Girls Creations - anything goes
Crafty Creations - don't be blue


This one uses stamps from the Mix Mash set. Happy Birthday sentiment is heat embossed with black EP. "You" die is from Simon Says Stamp and mat dies from Spellbinders. Finished with some sequins from my stash and a few splatters.

Challenges entered:
Polkadoodles - add sparkle, bling or glitter
Aud Sentiments - birthday
Inspiration Destination - anything goes

I hope I have inspired you today with my cards. The other designers and I have had so much fun playing with these stamps! Next you need to hop on over to Ingrid's blog.

Here's the full list of participants in case you need it.
