Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop.

We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that love to Create and share what we do. Every two weeks we blog together with a given theme.  The theme for this Blog Hop is the New Annual Catalog.  It is amazing!  Did you notice the Dots and Spots Die on page 170?  It is a hidden gem.  I wanted to show it off using the remnants of the dots to make a Shaker Card using the Bottled Happiness.  Here is my card.  I will be sure to include the supplies below.

Bottles of Happiness SU 1

I also used the cut out die to use as a stencil, to add a background and texture to the card.  

Bottles of Happiness SU 2

I stamped the bottles on the inside.  I wish the Masking Paper was more convenient in the video because it would have worked better.

Bottles of Happiness SU 3

I also used the remnants from the Dots & Spots  Die to fill the shaker card. That die is going to be so much fun to use.  Make sure you check out the video to see how I used it.

It is amazing how you can use a lot of product from different Suites and Bundles.

Here are the measurements:

Soft Succulent; 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 41/4", 3 3/4" x 5",  1 5/8" x 4 3/4" 

Sahara Sand: 2 5/8" x 4"

Basic White: 2" x 3", 1/2" x 3, 3/4" for Sentiment

Window Sheet: 2 5/8" x 4"

Make sure to check out the  video and I will show you the versatility of the Dots and Spots Dies.
