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 a Strip Card Challenge.  I also wanted to show off the Twigs and Sprigs Hybrid Embossing and Die Cuts.  I also did the Floating strips technique using the Pretty Prints DSP.  Here is my card and I will be sure to include the supplies below.

Twigs and Sprigs SU

I used the White craft ink to highlight the embossed area of the Twigs and Sprigs.  

Here are the measurements for easy reference.

Basic Black:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4", 2 5/8" circle, 4 1/4" x 6" to cut dies for embellishments
