Pretty Cute Stamps July 2016 Blog Hop


Hello everyone! Its time for another Pretty Cute Stamps Blog Hop. If you've arrived here from Henriette's
Blog then your in the right place. If you would like to start from the beginning, please click HERE. There are 11 new digital stamps being released today. You can check them all out in the shop HERE. My card features the Lifesaver set pictured below. This fun little set includes two images, five different sentiments, and the matching SVG outlines.

For this card I started by creating my card base. I layered a piece of kraft cardstock that had a bunch of anchors printed in white onto a plain kraft card base and set it aside for later. Next I opened the ring-shaped life preserver and the "You're A Lifesaver" sentiment in Photoshop, re-sized them, and printed them onto some white cardstock. Note I printed the ring-shaped life preserver twice so I could do some 3-D layering with some foam dots. Once I had my two images and sentiment printed I colored them and fussy cut them out. I kept one of the life preservers whole and cut the other one apart only keeping the red parts. I used some foam dots to adhere the fussy cut pieces to the other lifesaver giving it some dimension. I also cut away parts of the rope along the outside edge of my image and replaced it with some twine. I thought the twine would be a fun touch and lots of texture. To finish I added a small little yellow glittered star and attached the entire lifesaver in the middle of my patterned paper right above my sentiment. 

 I hope you enjoyed my card and Thanks for stopping by today! Your next stop on the hop is Shannon's Blog! Below you will find the complete line up in case you get lost along the way.
