CTMH Blog Hop: Live Out Loud

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians!!

Welcome to another Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from my friend, Carla's blog, you're on the right track.  If you're starting here, settle in with your favourite ice cold beverage (at least if you're in Ontario where it's pretty hot today) and hop along with us as we create with Live Out Loud.  Here's the stamp set:

Isn't this stamp set just so much fun!  I love all the different fonts and sentiments.  I decided to delve into some old paper.  I'll be getting some brand new product very soon, so I gotta make room!

Here is my first card: 

I pulled out my Wings paper pack to create this card.  I pleated the paper strip, but if I laid it flat it wasn't long enough, so I used some floss to thread it and laid it lightly on my adhesive.  Perfect!  I also went into my little bin of already cut flowers that I hadn't used on other projects.  3 roses were waiting for me to use, cut from a very old paper pack, Silhouette.  I rolled 'em up, stuck a big sparkle inside, added them and some more sparkles to the card front and I LOVE it!

I wanted to try a different look with my next card:

For this card, I used a Retro Sketch.  Of course, I'm too late to link up, but it sure was fun to work with.  Again, I used Wings, but I went for a pop of pink.  The dancing girl is from an old Stamp-of-the-Month, Be Yourself.  I stamped the image a second time in Hollyhock and pieced the dress on her.  I'm happy with how it turned out!

Materials used:
Wings Level 2 (retired)
Silhouette Level 2 (retired)
Be Yourself (retired)
Hollyhock Ribbon Rounds (retired)

Now it's time to hop on over to Tamra's blog and see what wonderfully creative project she's prepared for you.
