Enjoy Life Blog Hop Challenge

Here we are at day three of this month's new release blog hop challenges, and we are LOVING your reaction to this month's sets! Today's set is just AMAZING, and we are SUPER excited to release another set of Dies!! 

No sweeter treat, or better way to Enjoy Life in the summer time than an ice cream cone, am I right? Well, Torico has made a FABULOUS set of mix and match patterns of ice cream, and their cones, for you to custom make your own YUMMY treats! And even better, we have custom made our own Die’s to go along with this FABULOUS set!!! They are a set of three dies including two ice cream tops, measuring at approximately 1 1/4" and 1", and one cone measuring at 1 1/8".

Enjoy Life is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 11 stamps and will sell for $10.00.
The matching Enjoy Life Dies will sell separately for $8.25. 

I stamped my ice cream and cone with Colorbox chalk ink on Sweet Tooth cardstock. My oval was cut out with the MFT Oval Stax Die-namics, and the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. My borders are the Dot Border Die-namics, in Hot Fudge, and my other card stock colors are Baja Breeze and Orange Fizz. To finish, I used Walnut Seam Binding and Michael's brads.

Would you like to win the new Enjoy Life stamp set and matching Dies? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, July 28th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

For my card tonight, I used the a la mode- You Anchor Me.  I paired it with the Buttons Galore Ocean Tide button assortment. My image was colored with Copics, and then layered with Going Gray card stock. The paper I used is the MME Be Amazing paper pad. To go along with my paper, I used Orange Fizz(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and Berrylicious(MFT) cardstock. The Designer Labels 3 were used to create my background, and my border was made with the Bracket Edge Border Die-namics. To finish my card off, I used some Orange Fizz grosgrain, Michael's brads, and a creative express spiral clip. Stone Twine was used in my Buttons Galore buttons.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out the MFT blog to see who all is participating today, and don't forget to comment for your chance to win!!
