CardMaker - Ellison/Sizzix Blog Hop

Hello!



I'm excited today, to be part of a fun blog hop!  

Sizzix and CardMaker Magazine have joined together to bring you a wonderful variety of cards, and other inspiration and ideas featuring some amazing dies by Stephanie Barnard.  Each designer on the two teams, will be featured on one day of the hop. Each day from June 1-13, you will find inspiration, as you hop along with us!

I'm happy to share some fun things with you today!
Thanks to the folks at Sizzix, I had some incredible new products to create with! I am still pinching myself - what fun! Thank you Sizzix!

It was unbelievable, just how easy this card came together!


The products I used for this card were:  
Blue card stock, white card stock, sequins, adhesive, baker's twine


Here's a view from the side - just look at that fun die!!!


I decided to use some of the die elements to create a fun Birthday card!
Hope you like it!


I also used Stephanie Barnard's stamp set 'Back2Basics Set #1. This was the series premier in 2009, and I've nearly worn it out!

Be sure and check out the next person on the hop tomorrow!  
Mou Saha has something wonderful to share with you, and will have the next link to the hop!

Leave lots of love along the way, because to thank you for taking the time to follow along in our hop, Sizzix will be giving ONE LUCKY WINNER a Sizzix Big Shot Machine, their choice of 3 Stephanie Barnard dies from her latest cardmaking Sizzix collection, as well as a YEAR long subscription to CardMaker magazine!!!  All of the details for the giveaway, and how you can enter for a chance to in can be found on the Sizzix site!

Thanks for stopping by!
