CardMaker & The Stamps of Life Blog Hop

What a great day to stop by!  CardMaker Magazine and The Stamps of Life are having a joint blog hop!  If you are hopping along  you should have reached me from Frances Byrne's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning you can get the hop list and details here, at the CardMaker blog
The Stamps of Life has lots of neat stamp sets with coordinating dies from Sizzix.  I used two sets on my project today : Tickets2Stamp and Spinners2Stamp.  I try to be inspired by what I see, and can you guess what I've been doing this summer?  Yes - living in the Midwest means there are lots and lots of festivals and carnivals!!  
I couldn't resist  this easy to stamp spinner.  The set comes with a large circle stamp complete with dividers, little sentiments to stamp in the different sections and even a solid triangle stamp so you can color up each section.   I love the "Open My Present First" sentiment!
I stamped a bunch of little tickets from the Tickets2Stamp set to stick inside my card.    Who wouldn't want a whole roll of these to collect on?  They were really easy to stamp - and again the set included a solid stamp so you can easily add some color onto each ticket. 
Here's a peek at the inside of the card - just one section from what I'm calling the "Birthday Wheel" with the winning sentiment! 

Ready to see some more?  Here's a list of all the designers posting projects today.  The next stop on your hop is Vanessa Buzard.  But before you go - please leave me a comment.  The Stamps of Life will be giving away THREE Stamp Sets ($12.95 value or less) to one winner!  You can get all the details here on the Stamps of Life Website. 

Here's a complete list of all the designers with projects today!
