August SOTM Blog Hop

I know this stamp set will make adorable halloween cards but I thought I would show you a couple of other possible ideas for how to use this adorable stamp set. Like a birthday….

What a hoot birthday

Suplies used for this project:

Ariana paper pack, Chocolate, Daisy White and Crystal Blue cardstock.  What a Hoot and the Art Philosophy Celebrate stamp set.  I cut the tree and leafs using the Artbooking cartridge.  The eyes and pom pom on hats are the black and grey bubbles.
