InStyle Stamps Blog Hop

Hi all,

It's time again for a Blog Hop with InStyle Stamps!  This month, our theme is Fall/Autumn!  I decided to make a fun box using Firefly Chloe - she was a brand new release this month!  If you came here from Axa's blog, then you are on the right track!  If not, please head back to the ISS blog to start from the beginning.  Make sure you complete the entire blog hop, then comment on the ISS blog and vote for your favourite DT project - you could win a $25 goodie bag from ISS!

Here is my project:

I started out with a box that I received a gift in recently - I really liked the size of it and the colours, so I had to re-use it! 

I printed Chloe onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with Curved Rectangle Nesties.  I sponged some Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, and Ridinghood Red inks around her.  I added a snippet of Wild Wasabi Striped ribbon to the left side, and a Martha Stewart Gerbera Daisy sticker to the right. 

Glue Arts has generously given the DT a few products to try out, and we are all experimenting with them this week!  Personally, I really like the Glue Glider Pro because of the ease of use - I really like the gun format and it really does glide.  It carries a permanent adhesive, which is awesome. 
Win a free digi image - two random commenters on DT blogs this week will win a free image from ISS - all you have to do is comment on ISS posts on the DT blogs. You have until Sunday the 26th at 12:00 PM EST to do this.  You can check out our post about Glue Arts week HERE.  Here is the shot of the items I used:


Your next stop on the hop is Barbara - have fun with her!

Don't forget that there is a birthday bash with "Operation Write Home", open until Sunday the 26th at 12:00 PM EST, and the prize is 4 digis.  Check out the post HERE.

I hope you enjoyed the hop, and thanks for stopping by!
