I hope you are enjoying the "HOPPIN. " You should have come along to my blog from SARAH.
Now please be gentle with me, this is my first ever blog hop.
Now anyone who "knows" me will know I often have to put my crafting to one side, while my hectic life takes over. Well I have been panicking over this card for a few days. My crafty mojo is obviously on it's Summer Holidays and that is never a good time to try something a little different from my usual style!
(If I actually have one that is!) Eventually I took inspiration from an example shown on page 119 on the New Annual Catalogue.
I am trying to keep things simple!!! First I made up my card by embossing a layer of white card stock using the gorgeous Beautiful Baroque Embossing Folder. Then is stamped a band to go across the card; I used colours from the New IN Color Collection 2013-2015.
Coastal Cabana - lattice design from Summer Silhouettes, Butterfly, Pappillon Potpourri
Crisp Cantaloupe -Travel Journal, script
Pistachio Pudding - Viola's Lace.
I added depth and detail by distressing the edges with Baked Brown Sugar.
Other products used;
Simply Pressed Clay & Blossoms Mold.
Right, enough of my waffle, ready to hop on for some more ideas and inspiration.......hop over to
Thank you for hoppin' by.
