Stamping Royalty 2013 Blog Hop

Hello, and a happy Friday to you :)


Welcome to the stamping Royalty 2013 blog hop.  Today I am hopping along with the other 14 winners of the 2013 stamping royalty competition.  I'd really like to thank the Paper Crafts team once more for picking my  lil'ole'card. :)

Since I am the first stop on the hop, you should have arrived here from the Paper Carfts Connection blog. I will post a full hop list on the bottom just in-case you need it ;)

For this hop, we all picked one of the 5 competion categories. ( Birthday, Christmas/seasons greetings, Hello/Thinking of you, Love and Thank you).

I have a birthday card to share.

When I saw this photograph on Pintrest a while back,

I was immediately inspired to make a card with my PTI Ikat stamp set.  I just knew it would be bold and beautiful.  I am so pleased with the way it turned out.

I created the background by stamping on kraft card stock with black versafine ink.  I added some shimmer with a starglaze pen and embossed it with the linen and canvas impression plate by PTI, added some gems and mounted it onto a black background. The sentiment is heat embossed with Brown sugar zing powder.
I hope you liked my card for today, and thank you so much for visiting me :)


Now I cannot let you leave without doing a little giveaway, can I? Sooo....

I will be giving away  this prize to one lucky person who leaves a comment below.
You ave until 11:59 pm EST on Tues, July 23rd to leave a comment. I will announce the winner on my blog, on Wednesday July 24th. GOOD LUCK! :)

Now I am sure you are eager to move on, so I will send you onward to the lovely LALO

And last but not least. Here is a full list of the hop:

Natasha Kara  (ME!)
Shelly Kurth

So, go on...get outta here. Go see what the others have in store  for you. :)))
