Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop #6 – Cards a plenty & a bonus

Cards a plenty

If you have not noticed I love cardstock and ink. Give me a stack of ink and toss in a stencil, a stamp or two and I am content. Well that is until I run out. LOL The first project I made with this die cut is actually the last one you will see. My son and I made it using Clearsnap Design Adhesive and Glitter. It was really difficult to photograph but I wanted to share his creation with you.

Now on to the cards. I made a set of three cards using plain cream cardstock, Hero Arts sentiments, Crafters Workshop stencils, Clearsnap Ink and Sizzix die cuts. We are featuring Brenda Pinnick’s newest die. I hope you enjoy my creations as well as the rest of the hop. Use the blinky on the side to navigate either forward or backward.
