Paper Crafts Handmade Cards Blog Hop (with GIVEAWAY)!!!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I disappeared there for a bit. We're in the process of moving (and still trying to get our homeschool in) so things have been a little busy to say the least. ;)

 
I'm taking a little break from the packing boxes and school books to participate in the Paper Crafts Handmade Cards Blog Hop! I'm so honored to be taking part in this hop. I had 7 cards picked up for this issue but to tell you the truth I wasn't going to submit to this call at all. My dear friend (Lucy Abrams) was all over it and her enthusiasm eventually rubbed off on me. Thanks, Lucy. ;)

For this hop, the designers are using either 3,5,7, or 9 different TYPES of supplies. I signed up for using 7 different types of supplies and used: paper, a die, stamps, ink, embossing powder, washi tape, and enamel dots.

Here's my card:




I clear heat embossed the 'you' sentiment on patterned paper and cut it out before adhering it to the tag.

Supplies (first 2 are linked the My Favorite Things, the rest to Simon Says Stamp): 


Here's the full list of designers participating in today's hop:

Ashley Marcu
Chan Vuong
Lucy Abrams
Lorena Cantó Lavería

Now how about a giveaway? One commenter on this blog post will win their own copy of Handmade Cards! Just leave a comment here by mid-night Tuesday, September 24th and I'll announce the winner within a few days.
