Textured Fun Blog Hop & Giveaway



Welcome to the Textured Fun Blog Hop and Giveaway!  I am so excited to be hopping along with some super talented ladies, all showcasing Nina Yang's new stamp sets available at Avery Elle.

So here is my first card...

I die cut 4 tags using Simply Tags dies.  I took the striped image from Textured Tiles and stamped each with a different color.  I added all four tags onto a scrap piece of paper so I could easily center them on the card front.  Once I had that done, I popped the tags up on foam tape and cut the excess off.  I tied one tag up with some white twine and added a sentiment from Simply Tags: Everyday.

Here's one more CAS card...

Here's how I did it...I took a piece of typing paper and cut it in fourths. I took 3 circle dies, and die cut one on each.  Then I just moved them around on the card until the circle was where I wanted.  I used one of the pattern stamps from Textured tiles and pressed firmly down.  Once I had the pattern I wanted, I stamped a sentiment from Simply Tags: Everyday.



Now lets talk prizes!  You can leave comments on all of the blogs on the hop, for the chance to win these great prizes!

  9. Just GORGEOUS! LOVE the circles - and why didn't I ever think of using thin typing paper?!?!?! I always try thick cardstock, and it never works very well! Have to give that a try!
