The Stamp Review Crew: Dotty Angles Edition

Wow, can you believe it is June 1st?!  This year is just flying by!  Only one week of school left for us, but I'm sure a lot of you are already out and enjoying the start of your summer break. I am very jealous of those of you who are! I have been subbing in a math class full time for a little over three months, and my house and my crafting room have been missing me. lol

It's time for our first Stamp Review Crew blog hop for the month and this one was a tricky one for me!  Dotty angles is a great stamp set for backgrounds, but for the life of me I couldn't think of anything else to do with it!  That is the great thing about blog can get so many creative ideas when you are stumped! I can't wait to see what all of my stampy friends have come up with. I went with a simple background in Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie. This was actually the first time I have used this background, I think! It's so easy to line up in the Photopolymer.

I used the Hello You thinlits and cut right through my background.  I was going to pop it up, but I liked the way it looked flat, so I just added dimensional tape to the back of the entire piece and stuck it down to my card front. Then I looked at it and said "Phooey!  You forgot to stamp the rest of the sentiment first you goof!" lol Lucky for me, it stamped wonderfully. I think the cushion of the dimensional tape actually helped! :) Finally, I punched out a circle for my balloon and added some cotton thread for the string and popped it up for more dimension.  Here is a closer look at the sentiment. It shows up a lot better in real life! 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to click on the links below to see what the rest of the gang has created! a side note, I made a card for the last blog hop, got my card done and post written DAYS early (very unusual for me lol), and accidentally deleted it on my phone minutes before the hop went live! I didn't have computer access because my husband was out of town for business with the lap top, so I couldn't rewrite my post. :( Sad day!  I will be sharing that card, which uses Four Feathers, later on this week. I hope you will check back in to see it, as it's one of my favorite that I've ever made! :)
