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....

Textured Fun Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi everyone and welcome to the Textured Fun blog hop. Today we are showcasing the Textured tiles stamp set.

You should have arrived here from the lovely Wida Miller.
I am so, so honored to be hopping with these AWESOME card makers. These are some seriously talented ladies and I am humbled to be in such company :)

Without further ado I give you my card:

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE color!  I have been told I have a "colorful" personality, (which I take as a compliment) he,he!
For this card I drew heavy inspiration from the African Ndebele prints.

Don't you just love the color and geometric prints?
I used the single outline triangle along with my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to create the pattern. I also used the strip of tiny triangles to create a border and the tiny little ones to fill in and add something extra.
I colored the triangles in with copics and then used a clear, ZIG wink of stella brush to add some shimmer. I then used glossy accents to add some dimension.  I mounted the strip to a piece of wood paper. I die cut the bottom edge with a pinking border die. The sentiment is from the Avery Elle Blooming banner set. For the background I used the striped rectangle in the textured tiles set that I heat embossed with clear embossing power.

Now what is a hop without a giveaway?  ;)

Nina will be drawing three random winners from the hop to receive some yummy items, so leave a comment on this post, and check Nina's blog on the 22nd to see if you are one of the lucky winners. Good luck!
