Blog Hop Order:
Robin (you are here)

I'm thrilled to share my "blog hop" project with you and I couldn't resist grabbing my Ticket and Postage Stamp Sets, along with the coordinating dies that go with each set.
When I designed these two stamp sets I had in mind that both of these sets would work together oh so well! So her is my project using both the Ticket and Postage Stamp set with both coordinating dies.
 Side view of my card, I used foam tape to pop up the postage stamps.
I inked all the edges of my papers using Memento Peanut Brittle ink.
The bicycle die is from Shadow Box.
The crinkle ribbon color I used is Sky Blue, and the twine is Vintage Chocolate. Both are available at My Craft Spot.
I used the tiny Ticket metal dies to cut out the images below. The border and words "Happy Day" are from the Ticket Stamp Set. I used thread and a needle to attach the tiny tickets to the bow.
 The words Live and Laugh are both from the Ticket Stamp Set, the word Love and the accent image is from the Postage Stamp set, I love how these two sets work so well together.
I'm so excited to give one of the metal die set that I designed away, Postage Stamp Metal Die to one fantabulous winner, for your chance to win, follow the steps below......

  19. Wow! This card is beyond cute, the colours you used are so striking and beautiful. I love it! and I love the cute little die set you used, you did a great job when you designed these. TFS and for the chance to win them, The first thing I would make if I was lucky enough to win is this card! Yes I feel a scrap lift in the making.

  20. "Cute Critters"! I can just imagine all the fun uses

  21. First off your card is wonderful. The sets do go together beautifully. Love the colors and layout. NICE. TFS.
    It is a hard choice but I really like the Stampin Around Spring set. BUT then again the tickets and postage dies are so darn cute. Love how they can be cut together in one piece or used separate. And mathing stamps that fit perfectly is a HUGE plus.
