Today we are featuring a blog hop using Clear & Simple Stamps with Creative Cuts & More dies. 
How to Win

Your chance to win will end Friday, September 24th at 11:59pm EST. Two randomly selected winners will be announced on Saturday, September 25th.  Thank you for stopping by and good luck!


I have had so much fun creating for this blog hop-I love creating baby projects so this was right up my alley.  I chose to work with Oh, Boy from Clear & Simple Stamps.  






The blocks I used are the Tuck Top Cube Boxes from Creative Cuts & More in Tropical Breeze, Pomegranate, Lime Crush.  I stamped some backgrounds on each of them from left to right using {Oh, Boy, Wallflower and Art Deco}I stamped the images over the backgrounds.  Some of the beautiful Clear & Simple ribbons finished off the boxes in Dare to be a Diva Red and Simply Blue-tiful.  The middle one, I simply tied a string of twine around it.


For my card I chose to use Square Border Windows Square Card in Tropical Breeze.  I love the non-traditional colors for a baby card-different than the pastels.  I layered some Kraft Like a Rockstar cardstock with a piece of a Pomegranate card that I had in my stash.  The doggy image was stamped and colored twice, and then cut out the image and popped it up with dimensionals.  I tried to create a "leash" for the puppy using some twine. On the inside I layered a piece of A Blanc Check Cardstock and attached two buttons with twine with the sentiment stamped in the middle.



Hope you have enjoyed my creations and make sure to hop through all the blogs and comment for your chance to win some great prizes.  If you get lost along the way, the beginning of the hop starts at the Diecut Diva blog.
