Welcome back guys!  I'm so happy to be part of Craftin Desert Divas July Release blog hop.  For the past few days, we are showcasing our July Sneak Peek Release, I'd like to round up my projects and share my thoughts about them with you....
(Scroll down for the list of the blog hop at the bottom)

Let's get started!

Day 1 : Brighter Days stamp (4x6) and Torn Paper dies.

I love the sentiments and the cheerful images from this Brighter Days stamp.  Great for encouragement cards as well as any occasions cards.  Torn Paper dies is my new favorite dies.  I love the uniqueness of it and I think distressing it with walnut stain or any brown inks will give great vintage look.

Day 2 : Skatin By stamp (4x6) and Swirl stencil 

Stencil is a great way to create backgrounds and there are many ways that you can play around with it.  Even tracing it and fill in with whatever medium that you like.  I traced the stencil and watercolored it with watercolor markers.  The fun and active images from this Skatin By stamp are super duper cute and I think it's perfect for everyone.  

Day 3 : Fruity Friends stamp and Llama Party stamp (4x6)

How adorable this cutie from Fruity Friends stamp is :)  Love those characters in fruity costumes and they're just perfect to create any card to cheer someone up or just even to say HELLO!

For Llama Party stamp set, I'm so sorry I didn't have a card to share with you but I'm sure our design team member friends did amazing jobs showcasing it.

Day 4 : YOU stamp (5x7)

I love playing with geometric shapes.  Even though this set has beautiful and large image covered nicely on front panel but not to overlook at the small images that are included in this set to customize your own designs.  And that big bold YOU is Awesome!

Day 5 : Good Times stamp (4x6)

Another awesome set of stamp - Good Times!  I love that you can create any occasions cards as well as to friend(s) who love reading.  Great sentiments and fonts.

So what do you think about this release?  Love them? Would love to know your thoughts.

I hope you enjoy my presentation and continue hopping along with us.
