Welcome to an International Bog Hop hosted by the amazing Kylie Bertucci. I am so thrilled and honoured to have been asked to participate in this blog hop.
We are focusing on some of our favourite Retiring products. I have so many favourites it was hard to pick. So I settled on a stamp set that I have used many times over. Perfect Pennants.
I wanted to do something different and show you how to use the stamp set in a different way. So I started with one of the less obvious stamps in the set, the star. Most people would focus on the sentiments in this set, but I wanted to make the accessory stamps the focus.
I started by stamping the star randomly on the card front in three colours - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist. And yes these are the retiring In-Colours. There is still stock available of the stamp pads and paper, so make sure you grab them before they are gone forever.
I then stamped the sentiment and cute tags, all from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I used the Deco Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment. And, yep, these are retiring too. They are still available at 30% off. Wow, so you best grab them while you are getting the retiring In Colours too.
But the card looked a bit 'clean' for my liking, so I randomly squirted it with water and let the ink run. I think it gives it a great grungy look. What do you think ?
So now you have seen my card, make sure you check out what everyone else has done.
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
