TAWS August Blog Hop - Be Yourself


Hello! It's the end of the month, which means it's new release (and blog hop!) time for the Alley Way Stamps.  All sets that have been previewed this week are now available in the store.  For my card today, I'm showcasing the new Unique Peek set.  Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Emily's blog. (If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click here.)

To create my card, I started by stamping a paint splatter background using images from Oh Splat in lime, light pink and dark pink.  I then stamped the super adorable penguin and flower images in versafine ink, then colored them in with watercolor pencils.  While they were drying, I stamped the sentiment from Unique Peek in versafine ink onto lime CS, then trimmed one end in a banner shape.


The splatter panel was adhered to a lime card base, then the sentiment strip was attached with pop dots.  Once the images were dry, they were all fussy cut.  Before assembling, I cut out the center of the flower image with a 1" hole punch.  The flower penguin was then adhered to the card base, and clear winks of stella glitter was added to the petals.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.

Want to be entered for your chance to win the stamp sets being released this month? All you have to do is follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget here.

Next stop on the hop is Holly's blog.  Have a great one!
