OSAT September Blog Hop - Designer's Choice

Hello everyone, I'm joining my OSAT Facebook friends for the September OSAT blog hop and I'm so excited to show off some "new to me" products this month!  You should have arrived here from the the very talented Elizabeth Jeanne's page. If not, please head back so you don't miss a thing!

This time around, I've chosen to make 2 cards. First up is a square card using Taylored Expressions "Big Kahuna" stamp and die set. After copic coloring them, I cut the white background using Lil' Inkers stitched squares, circle cut the white cardstock and mounted on MFT Banana Split cardstock. To shade the sun I used a combination of Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Ranger Distress Inks.  Using foam tape, I popped the white square off the green leafy paper by Doodlebug from the "Springtime" pack. I ended up popping the Woody and the little beach ball up with some foam tape too! This card makes me so happy, I love this set by TE, it was a joy to work with! 

So next up is a card I made using the Penny Black "Man's Best Friend" stamp set. I stamped it out on MFT Natural cardstock and copic colored. Then I cut out using MFT stitched rounded square dies and layered on GinaK Chocolate cardstock and some gold-ish shimmer paper from my stock. I cut the paws out with MFT Die-namics Pet Accents dies and then cut them again on B/W polka dot paper and glued in the pieces. Finished of with some twine and champagne rhinestones.  Oh! The bone was colored in using Perfect Pearls, I kinda like the look of it! 

So that's it for me, thank you for stopping by, feel free to follow my blog and or/leave a comment.  I love to hear from you!  Up next is Megan's blog, click the NEXT button to head on over!
