Stampin' Addicts Bon Voyage Blog Hop!

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Bon Voyage Blog Hop!

You have just arrived from The Stampin' Bunny where you enjoyed Rhonda's creations featuring the set Pretty Amazing and are now at
Port of Call #24! This stop will give you a quick look at Seeing Spots, one of the most versatile sets Stampin' Up! has every produced!

Seeing Spots (115058) is retiring! Get it while you still can!




















The first two cards use a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) . . . if you are not familiar with the OSW technique, it is a TOTALLY easy way to make a lot of cute and simple cards FAST! In addition to Seeing Spots, these cards feature Curvy Verses & Think Happy Thoughts stamp sets, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa, and Chocolate Chip ink, Regal Rose,
Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla paper. I've embossed the kiwi paper with my Big Shot for a little extra texture and added a little 'bling' with some rhinestone brads. Final touch was to add some grosgrain ribbon! Whatcha think?


Next up is my favorite project! I really went out of my comfort zone with the color choices and I'm so glad I did! Who would have thought that Perfect Plum, Really Rust, Certainly Celery, and Sage Shadow would look so great?! This card again features Seeing Spots in the center of the flower. I've added a couple of die cut daisy's from my Big Shot and finished it off with a Filigree brad. The sentiment is from Fast & Fun Notes which is another 'must have' set . . . even if you only use the sentiments!




Finally, I made a cute little gift bag! These are also 'out-of-the-box' colors for me . . . Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, and Sage Shadow. It does have a rhinestone brad and a bit of ribbon but I still think it would be great for a Father's Day gift or other masculine gift, don't you? This bag was sooooooo easy - check back next week for directions and for links to the bag that Lyssa made that inspired this one.






I hope you've enjoyed your visit here at port of call #24. Please come back after the tour is over for more information on these projects (I'll also have some BLOG CANDY!). Your next Port of Call is #25 with Sharon's blog, Trails and SNAILS for a look at Frames with a Flourish. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
