The Everything ABC's Blog Hop

If you are looking for my SKETCHES blog hop project, please click here.

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "D". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "D" element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber's blog ~ Scrapper's Therapy.

For my letter "D" project, I chose "Dimensional Elements", "Distressing", and "Sponge Daubers".  Here are my cards:

I used our new Chantilly paper pack to make my birthday cards. I just LOVE the bright and cheery colors in this paper pack.  The stars I used came from our DIMENSIONAL Elements - Stars pack AND I cut the paper for them using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge since they coordinate.  That just means that I don't have to hand cut the paper to adhere to the front of the stars -- the Art Philosophy cuts it for me!

You can find the stars on the following pages of the booklet:

Page 40, B10, Shift, < Star5 > 3"
Page 45, C5, Shift, < Star3 > 1"
Page 49, C9, Shift, < Star4 > 2"

I also cut the circles using the same cartridge:  page 21, A1, < Circle1 > at 1 1/4".

The sentiments on both cards came from our Joyful Birthday and Perfect Fit - Birthday stamp sets.  Perfect Fit - Birthday also coordinates with the Art Philosophy - so no more hand cutting circles or using a punch!

I used my Sponge DAUBER to distress or edge the stars and the sentiments.
