Did you enjoy the Blog Hop?  There were some fabulous ideas put together by some very talented Demonstrators…I love working with these ladies – it’s so much fun – and the Summer Mini is just amazing…if you haven’t seen it, I have a link on my sidebar where you can view it online…

The set I used for my projects was BOUQUET BUNCH that you can find on pg 21 of the Summer Mini – it is a bargain priced at just $13.95 (or $10.95 for Clear Mount) and this is what it looks like:

I promised more details and some closeups of my projects plus the winner of my Blog Candy…so please read on…

Well from the comments  the favorite item was my card where I turned the vase into paper pieced fish – aren’t those fish cute?  And SO easy to do…take the stamp, some ink and some DSP – I love how they turned out…

Because I wanted to create a summery beach theme I used some brand new DSP from the pack Island Oasis that you can find on pg 27 of the mini – that Tempting Turquoise Polka Dot paper is just PERFECT for this effect – I used So Saffron cardstock for the ‘sand’ and used my Color Spritzer Tool with my So Saffron Marker to make a sandy effect.  I attached the fish using Dimensionals and put in a little metal hook with Linen Thread running from it (pg 183).  The silver frame?  Sooo simple to make – I took some Brushed Silver cardstock (pg 159) and my Circle Scissors Plus & Glass Mat (pg 191) and cut it out and adhered it to my DSP (which I also made a hole in using the same tool) – I attached my top layer onto my base using Dimensionals to give a real framed effect…

The sentiment is from one of my absolute favorite sets, Teeny Tiny Wishes (pg 145) and I used my large and small Oval Punches to create the tag (pg 186) – I used a shell and some Micro Beads (pg 180) threaded onto Linen Thread as a cute finishing touch…speaking of that thread, I LOVE it – it costs just $4.50 for 15 yards and I use it for so many projects…I used it again below on my chocolate bar bundle…

bhchocbarcloseupBy using Punches and this Thread you can easily create tags for any occasion…I love em…and don’t you just love that DSP that I wrapped the candy bars and my charm box in?  Again, another paper from the new Island Oasis pack…you are going to love that pack of papers…

Finally here is how I made my frame for my Mothers Day card – I simply used the Modern Label and Word Window Punches that you can find on pg 186 along with Dimensionals (pg 192)…firstly punch your Word Window shape out of a piece of cardstock…

Then take your Modern Label Punch and position it centrally over that hole…

Punch it out and this is what you get…attach it over your sentiment using Dimensionals and it creates a very cute frame…

Lastly the winner of my Blog Candy…the lucky winner will be receiving a Simply Adorned Bracelet and a Simply Adorned Square Charm…and the lucky winner chosen by random number generator is…
