April Angel Art: Scrapbooking Blog Hop

Well, here we are in April already! I am so excited to see a hint of green on our trees! I love spring!

For this month's Angel Art, we were to use any current Gift With Purchase stamps or Hostess Set! I am going to share a couple of quick and simple pages!

This first page uses several stamps! The hostess set it features is called Hinges. When I first saw the set, I wasn't quite sure what I could do with it but then you see samples of what others have done and you realize just how cute it is! I totally cased the idea in this page from a card we made at Round Up!

I first stamped Script Background onto my Kraft CS in Burnt Umber. Then I stamped the Hinges, also in Burnt Umber, right over the top! I traced the bottom of the hinge with my gray tombow marker to give it a shadowed effect.
This next page uses the hostess set, Cute As a Bug! I love this set because it has so many uses! All of the paper you see is from DCWV! I did, however, print out one of the FREE black and white downloads on Scarlet CS and then used the Sketched-bet Uppers for the word "BUG"! I loved that polka dot download from The Angel Company!

As, you can see I also only rounded 3 corners just for an added touch!
One last thing I did was add some paper piercing with my Scor-pal!
There are several other Angels who have some great things to share in this Angel Art Blog Hop! So, hop on over and check them out! Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!
