Studio Calico + Hero Arts Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to my stop on the Studio Calico + Hero Arts Blog Hop!  I just love these new stamps so much that I have a couple projects to share with you today.

First up is this soft and sweet little card.  Those polka dot clouds are so adorable!  And they even are sized just right to work with the Fiskars Cloud Punch.



{Stamps used: ST508 My Happy,  ST509 Hooray}

That diagonal pattern along the bottom was created by repeatedly stamping the line/flag stick image from the Hooray (ST509) stamp set.  I love to come up with new ways to use stamps to create fun background patterns. 

My next project is a cute little bookmark.  I think it would be perfect to stick inside a book for a friend or include it with a gift card to a bookstore.

{Stamps used: ST508 My Happy,  ST509 Hooray, ST506 I Love Books, ST512 Silhouettes}

To create the bookmark I folded a 4"x3.25" piece of cardstock in half and sewed along the top and right edges.  The left side and bottom need to be left open so it can slide over the page.  Super easy!  I know I'll be making more of these.


Be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop for your chance to win some of these fabulous new stamps!  Hero Arts is giving away five sets each day of the hop (Monday - Wednesday), and the winners will be drawn from ALL blog hop comments!

Your next stop is Sasha Ferina!

Thanks for stopping by!
