Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Zippidee Do Da

This month for our Use Your Stash Blog Hop we are using Zip Strips.  These are the 1/2-inch strips that you cut off the top of the B&T Duos (patterned papers).  I love that CTMH has added this to their papers because Zip Strips are great!  Hop through to find a variety of uses for them!

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Janet McCormick.

Perfect Day Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used: Skylark Paper Packet, Cardstock (Sweet Leaf & Chocolate), Cocoa ink, Quantrefoil Embossing Folder, and Colonial White Cards & Envelopes.

It’s hard to see from the picture but this card starts with a Colonial White base and the Chocolate Cardstock is matted onto that.  I used zip strips to make the layered flower (which I inked to add a bit more dimension) and I also used a zip strip for the sentiment on this card.  All strips are from Skylark.  I really didn’t want to add any more bulk to the flower so I cut a thin strip of cardstock and used that in the center of the button.  Enjoy the hop!

Now hop on over to Katy Donaldson Taylor!
