OSAT Blog Hop – Dog Days of Summer

OSAT Blog Hop - May Flowers

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop!!  This month our theme is Dog Days of Summer!   I have to admit, I did struggle with the theme. It feels like our Winter is dragging on, and I’m hanging out for Summer!

I’ve tried to interpret the theme the best way I can.  I love long balmy Summer evenings when it’s right on dusk, and the birds are still singing happily.    What best stamp set to use?  Best Birds of course 🙂

Best Birds

Rose Red and Crushed Curry with the Sunburst image behind the bird remind me of Summer nights.

For my 3D item I’ve gone with a Glassine Bag and Insert following the same theme as the card.

and the pull out insert:

The birds really are quite enjoyable to colour.  I’ve stamped them Shimmery Card and coloured with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso , Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  The branch is the same neutrals plus Wild Wasabi and Garden Green.

I hope you’ll continue the entire trip around the Blog Hop, you’re sure to get some amazing inspiration.  Next we are hoping on over to Kim Smith.
