Welcome to this month's OSAT blog hop. Wow, the month has flown by... I was caught off guard by all the year end activities with school.
This month's theme is Summer Lovin'! I received my order from the new Stampin' Up catalog on Wednesday and haven't had a lot of time to go thru and ponder what I will make with all of it, but I did use one of the new sets to create my card this month. When I think of summer, I think of the outdoors. Summer definitely brings loads of bugs!
I love this stamp set with the Lady Bug's. I have challenged myself that in creating new cards, I must use some of my paper pieces I have collected. Yes, I am a paper hoarder! I used some of the smaller pieces for the pennant to stamp the image and sentiment. I used accent pieces from my "stash" and used a strip of patterned paper along with a small piece of black card stock. I used some smaller pearls and colored them with the Cherry Cobbler marker and used the marker to color the lady bug image.
For my project, I created a matching Lady Bug box from the Curvy Keepsake die set. Again I used the Cherry Cobbler and Black Card Stock. Black archival ink and daubers were used to make the pattern on for the wings.
I hope you have enjoyed my creations for this month's hop. Be sure to check out all the awesome creations the team has for this month. Next up is Lori! You can reach her blog by clicking the next button below or follow any of the hoppers at the links provided.
