ILWS Summer Mini Blog Hop

Hi Folks,

Welcome to the ILWS Summer Blog Hop!

Today sees the launch of the new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue and to celebrate this and to get our cogs working the lovely Alison (this will take you to the first of 20 blogs, I am in the second group of 20) has organised a blog hop, this will be the second blog hop I have taken part in and I love being able to have a nose at all the different project the other peeps have come up with.

If things are going to plan you will have arrived from Kim's page, if not feel free to go and have a look.  It has been a busy few weeks so if you have taken part in the ILWS Summer Mini Swap I'll apologise now as you will recognise the projects I'm showing.

I have done two cards with similar designs but different colours.  I find it amazing how one thing can look so different when the colour is changed.

In both cards I have used the Sizzix Framelits and the Apothecary Art stamp set.  The stamps fit just perfectly with the dies. I have then coloured in using the inks and blender pen.

The above card is done in Basic Black and Melon Mambo. I used the Chantilly crochet and pleated it myself. Then just added the sentiment, plus 3 pearls.

This card was done using Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie.  I used Peach Parfait Stitched-poly ribbon as a banner. Stamped and punch out the sentiment again with the word window. Put the pearls on the banner as if they are holding it in place. I also used the Baroque border wheel and versamark ink to run across the card, its a little hard to see in the photo!

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my creations.  The next stop on the blog hop is Sally, hope you have fun looking on her blog.
