Catch Some Rays!

Welcome to the MFT Blog Hop! Just happening along the blog hop? Then, you'll want to start over at Kim's blog HERE. Of course there is ALWAYS blog candy at the end, so you'll want to hop along the Sweet Sixteen trail all the way to the end.

These days I find it VERY hard to NOT make a 5 1/2" square card! LOL It is just THAT much more space to play with. It opens up new possibilities and I love having the space to make everything work and not look at squished.
I am also becoming an "inside of the card decorator". I just love how it looks with the inside finished and it only takes a couple extra minutes to finish it off! Check out the fun sentiment that comes in the set! I love the bold VACATION word. If you stamp it in a light(ish) color, you can then overstamp with a dark ink and a smaller, thinner sentiment for a fun look!
The stamp set I used for this card, Catch Some Rays, as well as THREE other stamp sets are being released on Wednesday night at 10:00 PM EST.
The stamps sets being released are:

  • Catch Some Rays

  • Puttin on the Glitz

  • Purrfect Treats

  • Puppy Chow
There will be a special ONE CLICK bundle priced at $46 which includes all 4 stamp sets!
