There are so many stamp sets in the There She Goes line up now, that we needed another HUMONGOUS blog hop to show them all off! If you've stopped here from the sweet blog of Meredith's, then you're on the right track! But if you've just stumbled here from anywhere else and would like to join us today on this AWESOME hop, then pop on over to the There She Goes blog and start your journey there. I hear there are some fabulous prizes being given away, so you might want to play along today!
I chose to use one of my favorite mini sets for this hop. It's called Angel Mail and it's sentiments are so near and dear to my heart.
There are 3 sentiments in this set; each one as encouraging as the next. I went with this one because it's my favorite out of the three.
I wanted this card to be as warm and caring as a hug, so I dug through my scrap drawer looking for some warm colored patterned paper. I found these from Bo Bunny and Crate Paper. I also used an old Mojo Monday sketch (#170) as well as a flower from Prima, lace from Joann's and wrinkled ribbon from May Arts. I stamped the sentiment with StazOn onto cardstock and cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels One nestie. Then I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and applied glitter to the edges with a Quickie glue pen. Those angel wings are from the mini set too! I stamped, colored and cut them out, then spritzed them with some Pearl Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels for a little bit of sparkle. Don't all wings sparkle?! Because the card was so top heavy, I added some stitching detail to the bottom of the card to try balance it out a little.
For a mini set, Angel Mail is a must have for anyone's collection!
Thanks SO much for hopping with us today!
Your next stop is.....Jess Willison!
