Three Amigos Mini Blog Hop-September!

There.  There it is.  Doesn't look like much, does it.
Maybe you'll like this better:
So... welcome to the Three Amigos Mini Blog Hop.  This month's challenge was to use the #30 Years of Happy National Stamping Month stamp set. in a project.  These oh so cute little stamps have so many uses.  You can use them all by themselves on a little mini card or tag; even better you can use these little accents on almost any card or scrapbook page or other project.   I have used at least one of these stamps on each of my last four projects.... my Owl Sheriff had a mustache... my springy owl was holding onto a gift tag... my Family is Forever card had the Love heart and the little oval You + Me and of course in this one I used a bunch of them!  Here's a couple closeups:

Let me stop here and thank Susan Fogle, one of my Amigos, for Facetime Scrapping with me over the weekend and teaching me how to make one of these Pop-Up Box Cards (I prefer to call it an Explosion Card).  I have sooo many ideas for this style card.  I used the fantastic Paper Fundamentals Whimsy paper pack.... I LOVE these papers... little bit of gloss; little bit of pattern; little bit of embossing.  I used the artbooking cartridge to cut out the sentiment frame, word bubbles, stars and fireworks.  I wrapped some washi tape around sticks I had in my drawer and made little flags with another pattern of washi tape.  I used the twist ties and twisted them in spirals... once I got going this was so much fun!  Mine doesn't hide nicely inside of the card, but hey!... once I started I couldn't stop.... I'm still not sure I'm done...lol!  And those cute little stamps from the special were a perfect addition. 

So... finish your short hop (there are only three stops on this one) by checking out Donna's project this month! Thanks for stopping by!
