Stampers Dozen Blog Hop


I am so excited to be participating in my first blog hop - one of which will continue every month for the upcoming year!

Our theme for this month, is "Go For The Gold!"  and  we are featuring some of Stampin' Up!'s awesome gold products from the Occasions Catalog. 

I have always loved the color combination of Night of Navy and Silver - and so I decided to try Night of Navy and Gold for the blog hop today.   What do you think? 


My Big Shot and Magnetic Platform, used with the Banner Framelits made creating the banner shaped pieces a snap!

I pulled a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim and attached them to my card front with my "green glue" ( Mono Liquid Glue).

Gold Bakers Twine   - This wraps around my card front three times - I punched two half circle shapes using my 1/2 inch circle punch to help hold the baker's twine in place and add a fun touch to the look of the card.
My card uses one of my favorite stamps - Swallowtail.  Love, love this !!

My photo below shows my matching envelope - Once again, using the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform, this time with the Envelope Liners Framelit dies and the Gold Vellum, I have a perfectly coordinated and beautiful envelope.
