My projects for the hop feature my new favorite set Best of Everything. I have really enjoyed using it along with the new In Colors and the Berry Blossom Designer Series Paper.
This first card is so cute. I love the little bird image. The base is river rock and embossed with the dots embossing folder. The branch image is actually on the inside of the card cut with the 1 3/4" punch. The two strips of DSP at the bottom were just scraps but really add a nice touch. It is finished off with the in color ribbon in pool party and the in color brads (pool party and calypso coral).
This card uses 4 stamps from the set. Both flowers, the branch and the sentiment "friendship is a great place...i'm glad we're here". For all the lovely detail just click on the picture to make it larger. The bird house is from a punch...can you guess which one? It's the tag punch. The calypso coral flower is popped up on a dimensional and of course...for Dawn...it has dazzling diamonds on it.
This card came as inspiration from a card I saw on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator website. Thanks Linda Heller. What a great resource and just one of the reasons I am so happy I became a demo.
This cute little strawberry is another image in this set of 10 stamps. Of course it is sparkly too!
My last project is one of my favorite things to do-3D projects. This cute birdhouse was featured in the magazine every demonstrator gets...another great resource and perk! I made it my own by using the scallop border punch and sponging the shingles. I think this would be a very cute favor and you could make it to have one side of the roof open up. It would be so cute with chocolate covered sunflower seeds in a little bag.
