Go Team … Let’s Go Blog Hopping With Alota Rubber Stamps!


Hi everyone and welcome to the Alota Rubber Stamps blog hop.

The hop started at Helene’s Alota Rubber Stamps Blog, so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

Today the Design Team are featuring stamps from our June release, all of which are available to purchase from Alota Rubber Stamps NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

So far during this release I have featured various sports …. soccer, football and basketball. And today it’s baseball!!!!!!!!

I wanted to create a card using all the cute “Baseball” themed bugs that are being released today so I decided to make a trishutter card … I love making these cards. And yes I do know that the catcher should be behind the one with the bat … but it looked better this way for the card LOL!


For my trishutter card I used the Catcher Bug; Slugger Bug; Pitching Ball Bug and the Scoreboard and a couple of the sentiments from the Sports Words set.

The above photo shows my card when it is closed.


Here is another card this time using “Pitching Ball Bug”, I actually made this one before I created the trishutter. I wanted to use one of the baseball brads I have in my collection so placed it where the ball was stamped on my card.


And don’t forget the inside of my card, this time using one of the sentiments from the Sports word set.
