Ring in the New Year Blog Hop!!

Hello Everyone!! Welcome to the Ring in the New Year Blog Hop!!

Happy New Year!! Can you believe it's 2013 already??!! If you have just stumbled upon this blog hop, you can follow along by starting at Holly's blog, Ribbon's and Glue. If you have been following along you should have come from Heather's blog, The Honey Pot.

The idea behind this blog hop is to use something "new". I decided to make a wall hanging with several new crafty items I received for Christmas :)

The base is cardboard with heavy weight cardstock attached from Canvas Corp, using the gorgeous Prima Birds on a Limb mask I got for Christmas. It was inked with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, with Stormy Sky along the edges. The flowers were created with my new Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire and Brushed Pewter (new) Distress Stains. were dabbed on my craft sheet, spritzed with water, and then the flowers were inked. The butterfly was created with Spellbinders Wonderful Wings dies, and adorned with Want to Scrap Nestabling (new). The other gems are from my dear, sweet friend Sonia of Passioni di Carta!! She sent me a package of amazing goodies!! Thank you again Sonia...I love everything you sent :)

The tag is a Spellbinders Matting Basics die, inked with Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Just Thoughts stamp set (new). It was stamped with Versafine in Onyx and then heat embossed with Recollections Silver Embossing Powder (new).


All you have to do to win this set of Tim Holtz Life's Possibilities stamps is:
  1. Be a Follower
  2. Leave a comment with a way to contact you
That's it!! I will announce the winner on Monday, January 7th.

My sweetest friend, this is positively stunning! You have embraced (and showcased) your new goodies so beautifully. The mask is stunning, particularly with the color scheme you chose. Those are my favorite blues.. they just so wonderfully capture nature's beauty. :o) The flowers are gorgeous and I'm crazy in love with the butterfly nestabling! Every element on here is so pretty on its own, but as always you have designed them to harmoniously flutter together as one. :o) Exquisite project, my dear Lisa. Your crafty heart is pure beauty!

Hugs and blessings!
