The Craft's Meow February release blog hop

Thursday, February 21, 2013


Hello and welcome to The Craft's Meow February release blog hop. Visit The Craft's Meow blog to see the full list of participants. I used the new Rejoice stamp set on my card.


I used an interesting technique to create the shimmery background paper, I embossed some Core'dinations cardstock using the Baroque embossing folder from Sizzix, then using a glue pen covered the raised sections (it did take a little while) and added some gilding flakes. I brushed off the excess flakes and buffed to a shine with a soft bristled brush.


The lovely large sentiment is from the new Rejoice stamp set, the sentiments in this set are such a great size. They really make a statement.


To coordinate with the shimmery background I added some gorgeous Gold Shimmer Twine from SRM Stickers. I love this stunning twine, it really is fabulous!


Just a reminder that the Soaring High stamp set is February's free gift with $50 purchase. It really is a fab free gift!


The color inspiration was from this week's Tuesday Trigger - Set The Table at Moxie Fab World, I was really inspired by the metallic elements and neutral tones in the photo.


Don't forget you have a chance to win all five stamp sets from this release by leaving a comment on the design team's and TCM blogs. The deadline to comment is 9pm PDT Wednesday February 23rd. Next up on the hop is the talented Gayatri. Enjoy the rest of the hop!! : )
