More Fun with the August Release!

Good morning!

Jessica here with a couple of cards I made using some of our fabulous new August release collection!  Have you hopped along each day with the design team yet?  If not, today's the last day to do so and leave comments for your chance to win some fun prizes!  Scroll down on our blog just a bit for more information about that.

Both of my cards for today uses the must have Bookmark & Bits stamp set with the coordinating Bookmarks & More die collection.  LOVE these new additions to SNSS!  I used my favorite image from the stamp set - the globe!  I've always been fascinated with them and would spend lots of time mesmorized by our family globe as a child... crazy, I'm sure.  I used the frame die image for the globe and trimmed off the bottom of it, tucking the edge behind my baker's twine wrap.  The sweet 'hi' is from the Mini Tags & Sentiments stamp set.  perfection.

My second card uses the globe again, this time stamped repeatedly to create a background on the yellow patterned paper.  The coordinating sentiment was stamped on a Decorative Plaque which was stamped with the matching frame from the Decorative Frame stamp set.  Fun colors - yellow, black, white with just a touch of turquoise in the baker's twine.  Super CAS and super mailable!  love that!

Have a great day - hope you get the chance to 'travel' today, even if it's just by reading a book!

Lovely cards, Jessica. This is one of my favorite sets too. I love your use of the die (doesn't it resemble an open book *smiling*). And what a great idea to use the globe as a background print!
