Stampotique New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to my part of the Blog Hop - I won't be putting the long intro here as, by now, I'm sure you're skipping that bit and wanting to get straight onto adding to your wishlist!!!

You should have arrived here from ~{Sue Davies}~, If not, head back to the ~{Stampotique Designer's Blog}~ to start yourself off.

As soon as I saw ~{NYNY}~ I knew it would be perfect for my bucket list journal page that has been in my mind for a very long time and that I would actually finally do it! 


 I started off with a randomly done painty pen-y background which I used ~{Design Cube 2}~ on. This is another 'must have' in my opinion!
I then stamped and watercoloured the ~{NYNY}~ (so good I've linked it twice!) image and cut it out and stuck the bottom and the sides to the page only. 
I've then used ~{Typewriter Alpha}~ to make up the text - doodling and cutting each letter individually.

Finally I cut strips of card and stuck them into the 'pocket' with the idea that I'll date them as I do them!! A lot of them will involve me recovering to achieve them, but 1 or 2 will be crossed off this year!



The second thing I've made for the hop is a card for my BIL's birthday (I've had to put it at the bottom so he doesn't see it before the date!)

I stamped ~{Towering Gifts}~ directly onto the card blank and then very carefully stamped one of the ~{Dog Cube}~ next to it, firstly without one of the legs and then just the leg to almost the cocking position!!!


Everything was watercoloured and then I added ~{Couldn't you just pee your pants?}~ and added the detail!! 


Here is the list of the DT taking part:


You will now be heading onto ~{Corrie's Blog}~. Don't forget to comment as you go as there will be randomly drawn prizes on February 25th.
