Everything ABCs Blog Hop~B


Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “B”. This may be the name

of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has

chosen as their “B” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy

If you came from Michelle Battitori – Michelle’s Handmade World then you’re on the right track!

For my “B” item I chose Bling.  It is so much fun to add a little bit of pop to your art work with embellishments like glitter gems, sparkles and shimmer trim.  For this hop I did want to feature some of the new product which is going to be coming February 1st with the new Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.  I designed a couple cards using the Laughing Lola paper pack and two new items ~ Purple Glitter Gems Z1936 and Purple Shimmer Trim Z1919.

For this card I used Lagoon cardstock and random stamped the butterfly from Love This B1432 with Lagoon ink.  I cut the flowers from the Art Philosophy Cartridge at 2 inches and 1 1/2 inch.  The sentiment is from the Happy Autumn stamp set D1550.  The bling I used were the Sparkles Black Flourishes Z1745, Purple Glitter Gems Z1936 and Purple Shimmer Trim Z1919.

For this card I used a retired stamp set Hooray Bouquet D1491 and a non CTMH stamp set to crate the circles in Gypsy, Lagoon and Sweet Leaf inks using first and second generation stamping.  The birthday sentiment is Joyful Birthdays B1419 in Slate ink.  To add my bling I used the Purple Glitter Gems Z1936 and Purple Shimmer Trim Z1919.
