It's here!! The first Embellish Magazine Blog Hop!! I am so honored to have been a contributor to the first issue, as well as this hop! I loved the magazine, and can't wait to "hop" through all these wonderful projects!! So, grab a cup of your favorite morning beverage and enjoy the creativity!!
Don't forget to leave comments on every blog. Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs. A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon!!!
For the hop, we were asked to create a paper craft project using: red, brown, kraft, turquoise and use twine. (White/Cream are fine to add as well). I have fallen in love with Stampin' Up!'s new Elements of Style stamp set--so I grabbed that!!
I used my wonderful Big Shot to cut out the three butterflies--one each in Bermuda Bay, Kraft and Real Red. I stamped the flower image in Basic Brown ink, and watercolored with Real Red and Bermuda Bay. The pearls are from the Pretties Kit, adhered with Mini Glue Dots. The card base is Kraft, which is then layered with Bermuda Bay. I sent my 1/4 sheet of Soft Suede through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I love that folder!! But, to be honest--I'm not sure which is the "right" side!! haha!! So, I just use whichever I like better! The sentiment is also from Elements of Style--it's stamped in Basic Brown, then I added the flower image in Bermuda Bay. I'm very happy with the way the card turned out! Sure hope you like it, too!!!
Now, on to the next stop: Heather's Blog!!!!
Have a GREAT day!
