Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps July Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be a part of the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps July blog hop. I must confess that I've never done one before! Okay I've commented on my share of hops, but this is the first one I've been an active part of... so I couldn't control myself and I made three cards. The challenge was to use at least one WMS (I have the Big Blooms Chrysanthemums set) and use the colors blue and green. To see the rest of the Friends of WMS creations please click here to go to the forum.




Since Moxie Fab World is celebrating styles this week I thought I'd enter these cards in their Clean and Graphic challenge. I love that I've found a style that works for me. Thanks for checking out my cards! Enjoy the hop. Critter Challenge is celebrating thank you cards, so let's add the first two of these cards to that challenge.

Materials: 1 st card: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms stamps, W Plus 9 woodgrain, Hero Arts sentiment, vellum, Making Memories blue eyelets, VersaColor Bamboo ink, VersaMagic Night Sky ink

2nd card: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms stamps, Hero Arts sentiment, green twine, Stampin Up black ink, VersaMagic Night Sky ink, Making Memories eyelet punch for center hole

3rd card: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms stamps, W Plus 9 woodgrain, Hero Arts sentiment, American Crafts ribbon, Making Memories eyelet, Stampin Up black ink, VersaColor Bamboo ink, VersaMagic Night Sky ink

So glad that you were able to show three of them! And they did photograph well! Are they in order that they were completed? I like elements on each of them, such as the woodgrain complimenting the bloom on the first, the green twine on the second (never thought to do just holes either) and the layered flower on the last. Thanks for helping me out so very much, its been tons of fun.
