Quite a Catch Blog Hop

I am so excited about sharing my project for the Quite a Catch Blog Hop tonight! When I saw the stamp set Quite a Catch, I knew that one of the first things I wanted to make was a Diorama Card. Mine is a little taller than what the measurements are on this Diorama Card Tutorial (by Diana Gibbs). I think this is just the cutest stamp set ever and had the hardest time figuring out which one to feature...so chose two! :o) I also used some stamps from Gifts From the Sea and the the waves and sun from Oh Boy!

Here is a close-up of an inside angle.

Diorama Cards are VERY easy to make and I didn't use the standard circle punches that is in the actual tutorial, but used the Big Scallop Rectangle sets (small and large) to create my window. If you make one...I would love to see it so be sure and leave me a link so I can check it out!

For more inspiration, visit these designer's blogs tonight for even more samples with the Quite a Catch stamp set:
And to see all of the adorable samples in the StampTV gallery, check out this link: quiteacatch
