August Blog Hop Featuring Animal Outing and Animal Expedition DSP


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the August Blog Hop! I am participating in another blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, United Kingdom and Canada! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Darla Roberts' blog. Welcome one and all.

The theme for our blog hop this month is Anything Pets. This was a challenge for me. Even though I have a dog and two cats, I do not have any dog or cat stamps. I do have the cat punch, but I recently used it on a card for the June Blog Hop. (Click Here to check out my June post.) I could have used the Jars of Love stamp set (for the fish -- cute idea, right?), but I thought the new Animal Outing bundle (which includes the Animal Friends thinlits for a 10% discount when you purchase both) would work well for an anniversary card. This sentiment is perfect!


I made a peek-a-boo window using the Starburst punch and a Circle punch to highlight two frogs on a branch from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper (DSP).  A sprinkling of hearts in Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist using the Cookie Cutter Builder punch really show the LOVE in this card. Absolutely love the trim along the left edge made from the leaf die cut. I don't know if you can tell from the photo that some of the leaves are partially cut. I just love it!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.
