Oh My Word... A UStamp Scavenger Hunt!


Welcome to the UStamp Oh My Word Scavenger Hunt!  I have a "key word" that I will be sharing in this post.  The members of UStamp Oh My Word need to find all the key words on the participating Designers blogs and then unscramble the sentence.  :-)

Not a member?  No worries - I have a FREE PASS to give away to one lucky commenter!  There is a catch though - the free pass can only go to someone who hasn't participated in a UStamp event before.  My key word is with.  So please be honest in your comment and let me know if you've NEVER been to a UStamp event before... you might just score a free pass!  If you're not eligible for the free pass, you can still join in the fun and purchase a pass here.  I'll announce the winner at 9pm tomorrow night (Feb 20th) AEST.

I decided to make a couple of simple CAS (Clean and Simple) cards using the Aviary set, which is in the Australian Summer Mini Catalogue.  It's such a sweet set!


I also used some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, which is unfortunately not available in Australia.  I've found that the 3/8" taffeta ribbon gives a similar effect though, if you're wanting to try and create this kind of look.


And I still can't get enough of these Antique brads!  I used one of the smaller brads in the collection for these cards.



I hope you liked the simple cards I've shared today.  If you're on the Scavenger Hunt - good luck!! 

Thanks for stopping by!


Materials:
Stamp sets - Aviary
