ICS Blog Hop...Friend Like You

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  This month we are focusing on Beautiful Bundles.  What does that mean?  In the Stampin' Up!® catalog there are bundles of products which are typically a stamp set and either a punch or dies.  You can see all the bundles starting on page 4 of the Annual Catalog.   I chose to focus on the Friend Like You bundle.

 Stamp set Friend Like You

This bundle intrigued me.  I love a set with images and sentiments especially if the sentiments are a little different.  This bundle of products will be featured on my blog in a Product Spotlight soon.  


This is a bridge card and does fold flat for mailing and makes a great stage for a scene. This is a typical scene here in the Pacific Northwest.  I have way too many pictures of herons.  They still make me very happy when I see them while out on a walk.   The heron silhouette is from the Lakeside dies but I couldn't resist adding him to my scene.  

Here are some basic measurements.

    Card base- 4-1/4" x 7-1/2" scored at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 5-1/2" &  6-3/4"

    Bridge- 1-1/4" x  5-1/2"


The middle panel and sentiment was sponged using Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, Mango Melody, and Terracotta Tile.  Love this technique and it is easy to do. 


On the back of the middle panel I have a 2-3/4" x 4" Whisper White panel where I can write a little note.  I love that this card is stable enough to stand on its own and yet folds up nicely for mailing.

It is time to hop on over the see what the talented Audra Monk has created for you.
