SP & Company July Hop!

Hi and welcome to the DT Hop!!! I'm so glad you're here!

Now, onto my projects!

For the first one, I used the brand new Swirly Doos set! L-O-V-E! This set allows you to mix and match different sentiments along with a little sunburst-inspired image.  Simply fantastic.

I stamped the burst in a light green and then I added a little dark green to the center and to the lines.  I treated it like leaves.  Then, I cut apart the card and added a blue strip underneath and pieced the white base back together.  It gives a little more interest than a normal strip added to the top of a card.  I created the flower by hand with different punches and tools!

For my second card, I knew I wanted to do something fun with confetti since I was using the birthday sentiment.  So, I punched out some blue & white confetti and I placed it in a glassine bag.  I stamped the burst from Swirly Doos on the bag.

I also added Chevron Chase to the background and I cut a banner using a square punch to create the end element.  Fun, huh?

Still craving more inspiration???
