Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop--Bring on the Bling!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for December. The theme for the hop this month is Bring On The Bling and we are all excited to share some projects using and Stampin' Up! products that sparkle, glimmer, and shine!

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the previous person to me on the list. Please be sure to click the person after me to move along the blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.  So, here is my Bring on the Bling card share that I cased from the Holiday Catalog (page 14).  I needed something quick and easy for a holiday gathering last week; and it fit the theme for this hop.  YIPPEE!!


Creative Tips:

  • I am using a mix of Stampin' Up!'s new Thick Whisper White cardstock for the cardbase and the regular Whisper White cardstock for the layer.  I really love the Thick cardstock for the that it will stand strong and tall.  The regular Whisper White cardstock is lovely for using Textured Embossing, like the Softly Falling texture you see.
  • Bring On the Bling!!  I used a strip of the lovely Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to finish off the bottom of the card.  The rest of the bling is showcased with Red and Silver Foil and the Silver Cording.  It was hard getting a picture of the Red Foil to shine.  I love the Delicate Ornaments much lovely detail.  I die cut a solid image of the big Old Olive ornament and punched a 1-3/4" punch, both from Very Vanilla and backed the intricate ornaments so that they looked solid and you could not see the textured embossing through the die cut.  Would cause too much confusion with the eyeballs.  haha!  Both ornaments were popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment comes from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set...inked it up with Black Archival Ink and stamped onto a 7/8" strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I handcut the banner edge and added Stampin' Dimensionals.

Such a lovely piece and easy to create with the help of my trusty Big Shot.  I can't ever leave home without it!  Thanks for taking part in our blog hop. With so many amazing ideas and inspiration filled with bling that sparkles and shines throughout the hop, you won't want to miss a single one!
