As a member of the Design Team at Happy Little Stampers I'm thrilled to be taking part in this blog hop to celebrate the second stamp release....6 new stamp sets are now in the HLS store!
Here are the details of the hop...
This hop will run until next weekend and you'll need to visit each of the HLS designers and leave a comment for a chance to win a prize.
You should have reached me from the lovely Chrissie's blog. If you've got lost along the way, don't worry, there's a complete list of all the hop stops at the bottom of this post.
I'm sharing two cards today, made using two of the new stamp sets, Whimsical Friends and Mix Mash...
I used both sets on this first card. On a white cardstock panel I stamped the chevron, twice alongside each other, to create a longer chevron. I then stamped the cute bird perched on this and coloured him in with my Zig pens. I stamped the sentiment below in black, I think the 'miss you' works well with the bird looking into the distance. I mounted the panel onto some bright orange cardstock to co-ordinate with the bird and then adhered this flat to the card base.

And my second card...
I used a combination of stamps from Mix Mash on this card. I started by drawing a pencil line diagonally across the card to use as a guide. I then stamped the starburst and circles in a repetitive pattern to fill in the lower half of the card. I carefully erased the pencil line and then stamped the sentiment and chevrons to create a kind of border.
