For the hop, I'm playing with the new Avery Elle Bunting stamp set! Yay! It's FULL of banners and all sorts of things you'd string across the sky!
This set has been so fun to play with! Of course there are coordinating dies as well. :) Now, I know I'm a little biased when it comes to this stamp set (because I designed this one) but I really feel the possibilities are endless!
Here's a few ideas for how it works when you put it together.
Here I stamped the stitched string in Fog ink and then used a coordinating Bunting die cut string and placed that right over the top. I stamped and die cut the lanterns and added the die cut bows as well. The strip of patterned paper at the bottom is from The Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pad.
Next up, I have one of my favorite cards I've created ever. I know I shared it on my blog on Tuesday but I had to share it again.
On this card, I stamped both colors of the strings just like I did above and then added the stars and banners (all from Bunting). Then, I added a sentiment using the cute new mini Elle's Alphas.
I couldn't stop with the stars. :)
Here I used the new Dotted Border Elle-ments dies to add this decorative edge.
I shared this card also on my blog yesterday, but again - had to share it again.
One last thing... I thought I would share how I stamp the strings. :) One comes pre-curved but the other two are straight which work perfectly for creating your own custom curve.
First I stamp the solid curve.
Then I come back in and stamp the stitched curve right over top and it's time to go to town adding all the little tid bits tied to the bunting banner.
Now to the hop... you should be off to JJ Bolton's blog but here's the hop order incase you get lost!
