Stamper's Dream Hop, Sale and Blog Candy!

Hello! Welcome to the Stamper's Dream JustRite blog hop! The beginning of the hop is Tosh's blog, so if you didn't start there, you might want to! If you came here from Silke's blog, you are right on track!

This post has a lot of information...be sure to read to the bottom to find out how to enter to win blog candy and to see the ONE DAY sale info!

Today the Stamper's Dream team is featuring two of the new JustRite releases now available at the store: Romantic Sentiments and Lovely Thoughts.

These sets are some of my favorites ever released by JustRite. You can use them in tons of ways---with the fun borders that are available from JustRite or you can stamp them alone. There are so many possibilities and I am sure you will get lots of great ideas from the hop today.

First, here is a card I designed using Romantic Sentiments:



For this card, I used the key to my heart sentiment and created a romantic anniversary/wedding/valentine card. I kept the colors very muted and just wanted to keep the focus on the amazing sentiment. I used markers to ink the words so that I could really make the word "heart" pop.

Here is a cute treat pail that I decorated using Loving Thoughts:


For this project, I thought it would be cute do to a literal interpretation...and create a little bucket full of kisses. I added a button border to the little pail, stamped the sentiment in two colors (using markers) and added the punched heart to the top of the sentiment. This cute treat would be simple to mass produce.

Blog Candy: To be entered to win some "dreamy" blog candy, you must post a comment on every blog in the hop. Michelle will post the winner on her blog on Wednesday night!

JoAnn said...

Cammie, I totally love your card, it is very romantic. I use markers on my stamps also for the same reason you did. I like the lace but the heart and the key make the card. I like what you did with the bucket. I could use that for my children's church kids. Thanks for the idea. Wish me luck on the blog candy I would like to win for once. I've never won yet. I'm sure I'm not the only one that can say that. If I don't win I love the hops because all the ideas you get. Well, I'm off on my hop...
