Stampin Friends August Blog Hop- Hope!


Hello there! Thank you so much for joining our blog hop this month! Our blog hop theme is “HOPE”, I’m excited to see everyone’s cards and projects, it’s a very talented group. Please welcome our guest hoppers this month, they are:  Maureen Rauchfuss, Angela Lorenz , and Kim Lamos. Welcome ladies, looking forward to seeing your creations, thank you for joining us!

For this month’s theme I decided to break out a set of new dies from the Annual Catalog called Sunshine Wishes. This set is so adorable, with great fonts too! I have been on a CAS kick (clean and simple) lately… mostly because of time constraints. I can’t wait to have some uninterrupted time to play in my craft room this weekend.


Since I was using the word “hope” die cut from Sunshine wishes, I wanted to eliminate that word from the stamp set I decided to use (Garden in Bloom, carried over from last year).

Love post-it notes for masking off- just trimmed down to fit over the word I did NOT want inked up…

And presto, now the front of the card reads “Hope you’re feeling special today”.

The little gift bag coordinates nicely with this card, and I have some special treats to put inside for a special someone. This card and gift bag would be appropriate for cheering up a friend, or for a special occasion or birthday. The possibilities are endless!

Remember that this group of blog hoppers gives away awesome prizes each month.
