my Stamp BOX: ABC Card Hop


Welcome to the ABC Blog Hop with myStamp BOX today! I am the LAST stop on the hop today. You should have arrived from Trace's blog here.

If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop today, the myStamp BOX blog.

Here is the ABC Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:
For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win one of TWO brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then return to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win! Have fun!

Now on to the show!

Since this blog hop is all about ALPHABETS, I really got to experimenting with my two favourite alphabet stamp sets; Lots of Dots and Rough Copy Alphabet.



For my first card, I wanted the alphabets to be the highlight of my card, so I grouped them together and stamped them in a word format, multiple times as the focus for my simple card.

LOVE

supplies: stamps, myStamp BOX (lots of dots); cardstock, Bazzill, Walmart; inks, Stampin' Up!, Ranger; jute, Stampin' Up!; book paper, Danielle Steele book; die cut shape, Spellbinder's; misc. thread.

For my second use of alphabet stamps, I thought it might be neat to create a shaker card where you could see something fun inside the letters! So I created a shaker card using my Rough Copy Alphabets and some snowflake images from my Let It Snow stamp set.

SN*W

supplies: stamps, myStamp BOX (rough copy, let it snow); cardstock, Core-dinations, Prism; silver pearls, BasicGrey; ink, Versamark, Clearsnap, Copic; die cut shapes, Spellbinder's; tools, Spellbinder's Impressionabilities; embossing powder, Hero Arts; gliitter, Martha Stewart; ribbon, Esprit; acetate, packaging from Tim Holtz; misc., thread.

Here's a close up of the letters with glitter peeking out from behind them!

For my third card, I wanted to show you that is it okay to HIDE your alphabets every once and awhile! So I created this little Hallowe'en themed card....

BOO!

supplies: stamps, myStamp BOX (rough copy); cardstock, Bazzill; patterned papers, die cut creatures, My Mind's Eye; brads, eyelet, Making Memories; web punches, Marth Stewert; die cut shapes, Spellbinder's; ribbon, Esprit; ink, Copic; misc., thread.

And here's where I hit my alphabets.... under the swinging vampire....

Here's a quick peak at the inside of my card....

  17. I have to say that up until I got to your blog, I really was in love with that party banner on Tracey's blog, but that shaker card you've made is too adorable! I'll split the difference - The snow card is the best card/layout, and the banner is the best non-paper project.
