I have three projects, a lot of photos and TWO VIDEOS to share with you so let's get to it! I won't bore you too much with the writing since the videos will showcase all of the product and explain exactly how the cards were made.

These first two photos show the use of the Swing N Slide dies with the Oh Deer stamp set and coordinating dies. Here's how the card came together:

My next two cards feature the Otter Ware stamp set and coordinating dies, which were created to complement the Otterly Awesome stamp set and coordinating dies.

These otters are the cutest and I love all the possibilities between the two sets. If I was just starting out and had to settle on two stamp sets, I'd definitely be buying Otterly Awesome and Otter Ware! Here's a look at how I created these two cards:

The first otter card is more saturated with a busier background. The second is most definitely clean and simple, yet I used three different stamps - six total - from Otter Ware for each of the backgrounds.

I hope you enjoyed all of my projects for this release hop! If you didn't arrive here from Stephanie Klauck's blog, please head to The CLASSroom blog for a complete list of designers. Now I'm sending you to Jennifer McGuire's blog!

Thanks so much for hopping with us!
