Thanks A Melon … Alota Blog Hop!


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 August release, all of which are available to purchase from Alota Rubber Stamps NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!


For my card today I used the cute Watermelon Fun Bugs … aren’t they darling!!!!! I love shaped cards so I decided to create a watermelon shaped card which I designed using SCAL and then used my cricut to cut it all out. The water melon seed shape is cut out of the top red card so that the black layer underneath shows though … so much easier than attaching all those seeds by hand hehe.


Here is the inside of my card, which is the same as the outside other then the sentiment.

I have uploaded the files of my template if anyone would like it ... this is the first time I have done this so I hope I did it correctly. Please let me know if you have any problems.
