Welcome to this Month’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop and compliments of the season to one and all.
I hope this blog post finds you well and in good spirit and I hope you enjoy the Hop and what we have to share. I feel sure that you’ll have already seen some inspirational makes from Kim and the girls before her and there’s more to come …
I have been enjoying a Christmas Day with hubby and one excited little boy, who turns 5 next month. The magic just grows stronger each year for him and it’s wonderful to see.
It’s a season for over indulging and a season when tummy’s often expand … well for one dear friend, her tummy is on the shrinking, as she gave birth to a gorgeous little boy about a week ago. When the theme was set for a Blog Hop to showcase some Sneak Peeks of the up coming Spring/Summer Catalogue and/or Sale-a-Bration offerings, I turned to a set that is amazingly versatile …. ‘Welcome Words’. The beauty of this Stamp Set is that the words blend beautifully with so many other Stamp Sets and here I coupled it with one of my favourites … Zoo Babies.
I don’t know about you, but I ran out of time to send all the cards we normally would for Christmas, so a New Year’s card might just have to fill the space.
You can’t really see it here, but I’ve used Shimmery White Cardstock as the top layer on Sahara Sand and Silver Foil Cardstock. I’ve sponged to create a Bokeh technique behind the sentiment. The numbers came from the Project Life Day to Day stamp set and the silver foil stars created from the Confetti Star Punch … another favourite of mine. If only you could see the shimmer that this card stock creates with this.
