Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the “Even Easier” Technique as shown on page 91 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Tabby's Blog, you are on the right track! 

Because there are so many stamp sets that coordinate with the Art Philosophy cartridge, there are tons of options and projects that you can do with this technique!  It makes it so very easy to create beautiful things, too!  When I first saw the Just For You stamp set, I HAD to have it!  I love the bohemian feel of it with the stitched outlines and patterns.  Once you have the stamp set, it makes it easy to use your Cricut because the size is written on the acrylic backing right next to the stamp!  No guessing!!!  How awesome is that?!  So, I cut the flower out accordingly, and then stamped the stitched border.  Then, I stamped the petals alternating with Tulip and Sunset inks.  A wooden button keeps with the bohemian feel, and how can you say 'no' to the gorgeous chocolate striped ribbon?  I know I can't!  :o)

Supply List:  
  • Just For You stamp set (B1398)
  • Stella Paper Packet (X7147B)
  • Wooden buttons (Z1387)
  • Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Z1617)

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Rachel's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation. Happy hopping!
