Stampin' Up Blog Hop!!! Hoppin' Along!

Well hello!!!

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.

I used;
 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;
Linen Thread
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.
