Happy Little Stampers Second Release Blog Hop

Welcome to my little part of the Happy Little Stampers Second Release Blog Hop!

Take a good look at all the fabulous new sets that have been released this month, visit each of the designers blogs and leave a comment for your chance to win one of 4 fabulous prizes!!

I've got lots of cards to share so let's jump right in.

I'll start with the cutest little critters from Birthday Friends.


Aren't these little fellas cute? All the stamps I used are found in this set, plus more fun images and sentiments. Perfect for creating fun birthday cards. You don't have to use these little guys just for birthdays either. Look what I've done with my next couple of cards.

Is this Hippo, not the cutest hippo ever? I stamped tiny bells and some hand drawn strings tied to his tail and paired him up with Mixed Christmas Sentiments


On this card, I stamped the elephants in a row and colored them in soft pastels to create a sweet little baby card.

Next up, I'll be showcasing "Thinking Of You". The fonts in this set are so classy and elegant!

For this card, I stamped the beautiful text background image onto these two postage stamp die cuts and lightly aged them with distress ink. The butterfly from Butterfly Birthday was stamped and heat embossed in gold as well as the sentiment and pretty little scroll from Thinking Of You.

Check out the lovely font and sentiments in these next three cards using Thinking Of You.


That's it for me today, but be sure to make your way along the hop to each of the designers blog and leave some love along the way for your chance to win.

You can find all the new products at Happy Little Stampers.

Blessings~ Birgit
