Welcome back! I'm so glad you could join the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team for our last Blog Hop of May! Today is a very special hop. We are each giving away some sort of blog candy including our featured cards on this post and/or Stampin' Up! product! You'll want to comment on each person's post so you have a chance to win each prize (but no more than one prize per person). You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, make sure you go all the way around the hop to get to her terrific project!
For my post today, I made a card featuring several new items. The base is made from the new color Smoky Slate Cardstock. The patterned paper is also a new color, Strawberry Slush, from the new Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper. I pierced around the edges of this pattern to give it a little more texture. The Night of Navy Cardstock is embossed with the new Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The wonderful ribbon is the new Chevron Ribbon in Smoky Slate, and it will also come in several other colors in the new catalog.
Here's a close-up of the card front. The greeting is stamped in Night of Navy, and is from the new Really Good Greetings Stamp Set. The small images are from the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and were first stamped off in Strawberry Slush, then onto the card so they were lighter than the cardstock. The little flowers were punced from Strawberry Slush Cardstock with a punch from the Punch Pack. Then, the smallest gem from the Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents was added to the center of each. This whole piece was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.
**For my giveway, I'll be sending the lucky winner the new Smoky Slate Inkpad, 1 yard of the new Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon, 4 half pieces of the Smoky Slate Cardstock, a packet of Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents and the card shown above. Comments will be closed Friday, May 31st at 12 midnight Central Time U.S. One comment per person please, and must live in the U.S. to receive the product bundle. Winner will be notified on Monday, June 3rd. **
Well, that is all for today. You’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature another hop with all new projects featuring lots of new products from the new catalog! And, don’t forget to click to get to Sarah’s Blog for the next stop on the hop. You won’t want to miss her creative project. Thanks for stopping by!
