How many stamp sets do you have that include some pretty small images?  It's so hard to know what to do with them, right?  So let the Let's Get Hopping team give you some ideas so you can get those stamps inky and not leave them to gather dust!  You may have just come from the incredibly talented Cathy Caines, whom I know would have "wowed" you with her ideas, or you may be starting the hop here, at my blog.  Just make sure you select the "Next Blog" button at the end of this post to carry on hopping!

I am using a sneak peek of a new stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, due out 3rd of January, called Perennial Birthday.  Some of the floral images are quite small, but perfect for multi/repeat stamping.  Using a different colour for each image, I have built up a lovely floral card front, letting these stamps do all the talking!

I have used them on the inside of my card to create a frame around an area to leave your message in!

I have broken up the many busy little stamps by cutting my card front and stamping a lovely large sentiment through the middle before heat embossing in white.  To complete my card, I have wrapped White Bakers twine around my card front twice before tying off in a bow.  To add a little sparkle, I coloured three basic Rhinestones with a Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blend and adhered them to my card front.

Next up on our hop is Nina McMillan.  I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!
