LAD Blog Hop

Good morning and Happy Blog Hop! I'm excited to be part of the LAD birthday celebration! I'm taking my part in the fun Design Team Blog Hop! Did you know that the stamps that each Design team member spotlights on her assigned day are 40% off? Since I'm the second to the last dt member to participate in the hop, you have today and tomorow to enjoy the 40% of some fun stamps! Run, don't walk over to the LAD online store!

The stamp set that I'm using today is called Circle Sentiments. It is one of my all time favorite LAD sets! This first card is just a quickie. So, simple clean lines and very fast! I used some Soft Suede and my large scallop edge punch for a quick layer on my Crushed Curry card. I tied a Crushed Curry band around the card and then moved into my stamping.

I used my samj, to get perfect placement of my "thanks" stamp...how fun is that little semi circle sentiment! I stamped the sentiment in soft suede ink. Next, I moved onto my little soft suede scallop. I stamped the scallop image with soft suede ink onto soft suede paper. I cut it out with my little paper snips and placed it perfectly in the arc of the stamp! I next stamped the double scallop on whisper white cardstock with soft suede ink, then cut it out with my snips again. I stamped the flower image in crushed curry inside the scallop circle.

This next card is a super fun one...love the colors going on here! This paper is a new dsp from Stampin' Up! It's from the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. I used a couple of different patterns of paper and then also used the textured cardstock that came in the kit. (when stamping on vacation, scrappin' kits are an awesome resource!)

I attached my two patterns of dsp on my Whipser White card. I used my scallop edge punch to give the turquoise pattern some scallop! I used a little slice of pumpkin pie cardstock across the seam of my two patterned papers. Even though my paper has pink passion, Melon Mambo coordinates really well with the paper! So, some Melon Mambo ribbon took a little run through the stapler and made some fun ruffles for the party card!

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment with pink passion ink. I used my circle punches to add some fun color, tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie, and pink passion. My little cupcake was stamped in pink passion ink and cut out with paper snips. I attached it with some dimensionals and then added a little pumpkin pie button...fun fun fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Can't wait until you get to see the new LAD release....you are gong to be so excited! Have a great one!!
