TSG Mini Sets Blog Hop!

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Welcome to the There She Goes Mini Sets blog hop!!

We're showcasing two awesome mini sets today. They may be mini but they're definitely produce a big impact! If you've stopped by from Maki's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and you'd like to hop along with us, then head over to the TSG blog and start there.

I used the new Stick Together mini set again. Remember that 10/15 min card I made earlier in the week?? Well I had to make another card that took a bit longer than that! LOL Not too much longer though.

Before I get into the card, I just have to say that Jess uses the BEST fonts for her sentiments doesn't she?! I ADORE this set just for it's fonts! hahaha Anyway, I pulled some of the colors from this yummy paper by Memory Box and used them on the main panel. I sponged a combination of SU's Soft Sky (I think it was an In Color from a couple of years ago) and Antique Linen and Tea Dye from Distress Inks onto the Labels Four panel. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Stick Together set in StazOn and then snowflakes with the Tea Dye ink over the top. Then I matted it with some Bazzil Bling paper. The piece of Memory Box paper was sponged lightly around the edges with Frayed Burlap and adhered to the Bazzil Bling base. I then spritzed both pieces with some Glimmer Mist in Pearl (it sparkles soo much in real life!) and once they were dry, I put the pieces together and added some wide ribbon to bring the card from so-so to glamorous! Don't you think wide ribbon really does that to a card?!
