WooHoo! We did it!

Hello there!

We are nearing the end ... we can do it, we can do it!  I know we can!  I know we can!!  When we are asked to do this, I always try to see if I have used all of the images, have I shown all of the sides of DSP, do I have a wide variety?  But then I also ask myself if I have used enough items multiple times to convince you that you need them, wait I mean that you have lots of ideas to use them!!

So if you've been paying attention to little details like that ... then you'll see that I have used the Stitched Shapes Framelits a TON - not necessarily in the same way I typically might use them.  A standard use would be to stamp an image in them and then layer to your card.  But for these cards, I found that I liked to use them to help give me somewhere to "ground" my images, does that make sense?  Kind of like they are resting there instead of floating randomly on the card.

Well anyhow - I found this strip so fun to look at but it was a bit harder for me to chop up and use! I love it for a big gift bag, no problem!  But I once I finally settled in that I was going to use it on a card, I decided to pick the Basic Gray as my layering color.  So I tied in the gray from the strips to the layer around the dsp, and to the oval as well as the bottle top, and the bottle cap die cut from dsp ... and to my ink choice for the WhoHoo!

I hope that you have enjoyed my display samples as well as a few of the tips and tricks that I used while coming up with my ideas.  It's always fun but quite challenging to receive a new box of goodies.  There's no Pinterest or blogs or ideas out there yet.  So it's a challenge to come up with it on your own, but in the end it is really rewarding to sit back and say, WOW I did all this without CASE'ng anyone!!

I hope you'll be inspired to want to get your hands on this bundle once it's available and you can come back here to shop with me! I'd appreciate the support of your business!

Thanks, have a great day!
