Peeks at Come Home Soon

Good Morning!! Are you ready for another round of blog hopping??? We are having so much fun reading all your comments about the things you like to use in your creations, we're going to do it again!

This stamp set "Come Home Soon" is the 2nd to be released by Jami Bova! She is sooooo talented! The way she thinks through her images so they will be easy to work with and yet she keeps all the detail, WOW!! She amazes me!! This set has the large image and then the circle with "Land of the Free Because of the Brave" written in small print on the perimeter. Then Jami has designed little images to fit inside the circle, very cool!

Okay, for my card I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx black and colored it with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. The ribbon looks kind of purple in this picture, but it's not, it's navy blue and looks navy blue in real life :)



I stamped the support ribbon in black onto yellow cardstock and cut it out. I adhered it onto the circle and then punched the circle out with my 1 1/2" circle punch (Jami's so smart to make it fit like that :) I matted it on the same dp that I used for my card background and then pop-dotted it over the corner of the image.


This is an awesome set with so many possibilities. I can't wait for you to see all the different ways the dt has used this set. You also have a chance to win this set! Be sure to go to the 2RedBananas blog to get all the details.


Also be sure to check out all of the dt's blogs, cause you know that will be part of the blog hop :)


The chance to win the set will be open until 9:00am EST tomorrow, January 28, when we will randomly choose a winner and the next blog hop will begin. We hope you're having fun with these blog hops, we sure are!

Have fun on the hop and we'll see you again tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

Great card, Jeanette. Good idea cutting out the ribbon and putting it in the circle. I need to get the 1 1/2" circle punch. I guess I only have 2" and 1" (which is perfect for the inside of the circle).
