Dear Santa Hop at A Blog Named Hero


Hello! I am excited to be sharing a fun blog hop and card with you today! There is a fun challenge blog that has been around for awhile, run by a couple of friends of mine called, A Blog Named Hero. They have an amazing design team that creates beautiful projects based on different challenges. Its a great place for inspiration! And this month I am joining in the Dear Santa hop. Each week there will be different guest designers and different projects to get you ready for the holidays! (click the link for the exact dates for all the projects)

I started by stamping and heat embossing Bead Background onto white cardstock with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped Starburst Background over the top with Mint Julep ink. I used a slightly damp paper towel to remove the excess ink from the stamped bead image. The sentiment was stamped on a die cut circle and foam mounted. I added some cool iridescent sequins to bring some sparkle.

Be sure and stop by the blog, seriously. Its a ton of fun! And you never know who will be guest designing!

thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Kimberly! I love how you stamped the background to create your pattern! Very clever and so, very pretty!

The effect of embossing under the sunburst stamp is gorgeous.
