Welcome to the ABC Blog Hop with myStamp BOX today!
You should have arrived from Tracey's blog.
If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop today, the myStamp BOX blog.
Here is the ABC Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:
For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win one of TWO brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then come back to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win!
I have created three little projects using my favourite mSB-alpha stamp " rustik outlines". As many of you know I LOVE types, fonts and alphas, so this bloghop went straight into my heart - and I had a blast making my LOs and card.
I wanted to use my alphas in a "new" way, and decided to make backgrounds.
On my card and on the school-LO I stamped with acrylic paint. The acrylic paint makes a fun texture, and the stamped images appear a bit messy. I loved that look for my background on this simple LO and the card. On the "for You" card I also sprayed the background with glimmer
mist to make it sparkle. :)
On this LO about my dear boy I also used the "rustic outlines" alpha as a background, but this time the letters are put together to words. Words about things that matters to this boy @ the age of 13
I made the background using glimmer mist and the negative piece of a alpha-chipboard package, I gently sprayed the glimmermist over the "mask" to make the shape of the larger letters appear just a little bit darker than the cardstock.
Then I stamped the words on top of this.
You can find all the awesome mSB-alphabets here. They are all so cool and versatile, and affordable too.
Now make sure you find your way over to JOLENEs blog to continue the bloghop. :)
