Creative Inkers Holiday Blog Hop

Hey, this is fun! My first ever participation in a Blog Hop.

Some of Jacque Williams' team of demonstrators (of which I am one) have put together a Blog Hop for your viewing pleasure, featuring products from the new Holiday mini Catalogue 2014, (which goes live on the 28th August).

 For those of you new to Blog Hopping, just view my post here and then click on the link at the bottom of my post to visit the next site and so on. Enjoy:) Please leave a (nice) comment before you leave:)

I have designed my card using the Stamp set "Bright and Beautiful" and the coordinating "Stars Framelits Dies". I have laid a couple of strips of the new "All is Calm" Washi tape (which this time comes in a delicious pack of 5) across Whisper White on a base of lost Lagoon. I embossed the star using silver Embossing powder onto Lost Lagoon card stock and and die cut it and laid it on a larger die cut star using the "Brushed Silver" card stock (pg 193 Annual catalogue). the sentiment comes from "Endless Wishes", a photopolymer stamp set. I finished the star with a tiny star punched with the star from "Itty Bitty Accents " punch pack (pg 222 Annual catalogue) and a self adhesive Rhinestone in the centre.

AND just for something completely different, I made the card into a "Magic Envelope Card" using "All is Calm" DSP. I got the envelope design from Deb Valder.
