Happy Little Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Little Stampers are celebrating the first release of their stamps with a
blog hop!

I'm so happy to be a part of the Happy Little Stampers Design Team.  And I'm excited to be sharing some cards I've made with the fantastic first release.






Comment on the HLS Blog and then continue on to each Designer.
You should have come to me from Kylie's blog.  If you've missed something, just go to the HLS Blog to start and you'll find your way.


The blog hop will run for one week giving you enough time to hop through and check out what the designers have created.



GRAND PRIZE

One lucky commenter (selected randomly) will win the whole release!
That's four sets of stamps with a value of AUD$69.


MORE PRIZES

Four lucky commenters (selected randomly) will win a gift certificate
to the HLS Store!




My cards using Butterfly Birthday stamp set.



For the card above, I used brushos on mixed media paper, stamped the butterfly, and then picked up more brushos with a brush to darken the butterfly wings.



For the card above, I used the paper from SU! that comes already embossed with a leaf design (how easy is that!). :)  I simply sponged a little over the center and popped up my liquid platinum embossed and fussy-cut butterfly which I had coloured with two shades of blue ink.



For the card above, I sprayed my watercoloured paper background with yellow, orange and pink.  Once dry, I flicked on some diluted Inka Gold and stamped the dots in the background in black.  The butterfly was cut from the same watercoloured paper, stamped in black and fussy-cut.


Next up are my cards using Mixed Christmas Sentiments stamp set.



For the card above, I die-cut the candles twice, once in gold foil paper and once in gold glimmer paper and inlaid the pieces.  The sentiment is stamped in versamark and heat embossed in gold.  Love the elegant script of this HLS sentiment!



For this card, I used brushos for the background and added glitter for sparkle to the snowy hills and houses.  I framed the card and added this beautiful HLS sentiment in soft gray.



I had fun making this card.  I LOVE the song jingle bells and thought that creating a Christmas tree from them would be cute. :)  


And here are my cards using the Bold Birthday Sentiments stamp set.



For this card, I used my cameo to cut out the balloon, sponged with twisted citron ink and stamped blue stars.  I coated the balloon in Versamark and heat embossed with iridescent ice powder.  So fun pairing the balloon with the fun font of the HLS birthday sentiments.



For this card I used stencil monoprint technique with brown and blue watercolour sprays for the background.  I combined a few of the different sentiments from the HLS birthday sentiments to come up with a sentiment that fit the design.  These sentiments are so versatile!


For this card I used two shades of green watercolour sprays for the background and once dry, placed a geometric stencil over top and sprayed with water, blotted to remove the excess and leave a design.  I stamped the birthday sentiments and added a fussy-cut butterfly.


I hope I have inspired you today with my cards.  The designers and I have had so much fun playing with these stamps!  I LOVE the images and sentiments, and the quality of the stamps is awesome!

WOW WOW WOW. Amazing cards Loll. I am so proud to have you on my design team. I don't have a favourite - I love them all xx

MaryH said...

I hope you can hear me through cyberspace going "Oooh" "aaah" as each card scrolled up. You've managed to make this beautiful butterfly image look so glamorous and different on each card, with the colors, techniques, and expertise of each card. Just breathtaking. And I'm loving that gold glittering on the inlaid candles, and how perfectly the sentiment works with it. The 2 word sets are just so versatile - and look so different if embossed or stamped in various colors. Great use of the stamps, sentiments, and just stunning, awesome show of gorgeous cards! TFS & Big hugs.
