Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop

Good morning!  No ‘Scrapbook Saturday’ today, instead I am joining in with a bloghop with some fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  The new seasonal catalogue has been live for a while now so we are all sharing some makes with the new lovelies from that.

So you may have come here from Fiona’s blog a lovely card Fiona, with my favourite bling!
Last Wednesday I had the honour of presenting at the Creative tour event in Loughborough.  I really enjoy Stampin’ Up! events and was blown away that they asked me to do this.  The theme was ‘Makes for your Christmas events’.

One of the things I talked about was streamlining planning by using a limited bundle of product each month, so using items that co-ordinate with the Season of Style range I set to work designing.

This is a simple make and take card showcasing the ‘faux silk’ technique, I love the texture that it gives.

Secondly here is a stepped up version of the card.  I’ve added extra dimension by popping in a raised layer of textured card and some bling in the form of silver ribbon, rhinestones, and the beautiful Frosted Finishes embellishment, this is actually removable when you untie the bow.
