Seeds of Blessing Blog Hop

I finally had the stamps to participate in an Angels Blog Hop. What is that? Well, a group of us angels pick a stamp set and create with it. Then on a set date we all show our creations on our blogs with link to all the other blogs. This is a fun way to see how fun and versatile a set is. This months set is "Seeds of Blessing" I love this set, the sentiments are so encouraging, and the images adorable.

I decided to make a wall hanging for my mom's birthday using pictures of my 3 munchkins. I used chipboard coasters and covered them with Reece cardstock and patterned paper. I cut out my mats and pictures using my Coluzzle and coluzzle companion (love them!). I colored my images with watercolor pencils and cut out around them.

I decided after I had them togther that they still "needed" something. I decided then to add some paper piercing around the circles. I used my paper piercer with a circle piece of plastic canvas. You can see the piercing if you look carefully at the close up.




I also decided to make a matching 4x4 card. I used a left over piece of cardstock from my wall hanging (a square that I had cut a circle from, along with Rustic Chic paper and a peach piece of DCWV cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink on the cardstock cardbase that showed through the middle, added a couple of Bitty Blossoms attached with mini brads, and I was done. It was actually much easier than it sounds.
Here are the link to the other participants blogs.
