September Technique Blog Hop ~ It's in the Script

Welcome to the Technique Hop for September. We're calling this on "It's in the Script" since we're featuring stamps sets and/or penmanship in our artwork. So sit back and enjoy the ride!

The blog ahead of mine is Melissa Robinson. Click on the links in each post to hop to the next blog for more wonderful ideas.

I just got the stamp set I used for the sentiment on my card and knew it would be perfect for the hop. What caught my eye was the beautiful script and the wonderful sentiments. 

The pattern comes from our Make It from the Heart How-to Book. These patterns with cutting guides and examples are a great way to get started on your project. We have then for scrapbook layouts, too! The papers come from our Mix-in paper pack. This pack is designed to mix with our other paper pattern packs or as a stand alone pack. Here it's used as a stand alone pack. The two images were colored with our new Tri-Blend makers. A bit of bling and shimmer and I was finished!
