Lets Get Hopping #4

Good Morning and Welcome to another Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop!. Today's  hop theme is  "Small Stamps".

Now I love making backgrounds for my cards and so using the small stamps in sets is always my go to. Painted Harvest stamp set is a fantastic set that has the cutest little acorn stamp, it was the first thing I thought of when the theme was released. Very simple card, but would make a fantastic masculine card as well.

The next two cards are sneek peeks from the new Ocassions Catalogue. Once I started creating, I found I couldn't stop.

The stamp set I used here is called "Bird Banter" and it was a giveaway to all demonstrators at  Onstage in Nov, it has a lot of little stamps, and I have used some on strips of card create a great  background. 

I have also used some of the New "Stampin  Blends" to colour in the budgie. The Stampin blends are really easy to use, (and I am a beginner ) , the outcome looks fantastic.

Final card I have used the "Magical Day" stamp set, these tiny Seahorses, and bubbles are adorable. Again I have used the Stampin blends to colour the Seahorses, I  sponged the background with pool party ink, and used the Fine Tip glue inside the bubbles to give it a splashed water effect.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards and it gives you a few ideas to start using your smaller stamps.

The talented Tanya Rees is next on the blog hop.

Have a great day,
