Star of Wonder

Welcome to the monthly blog hop from the fabulous stampers at ICS. You may have hopped here from my BFF Nichole’s page or this may be your first stop. We would love to have you hop all the way around and see the many amazing projects we have for you!

This month our theme is  I am dreaming of a White Christmas, and so we are sharing white on white creations. Winter is getting into full swing here in Idaho, where we had our first snow this week. This theme is just perfect for the winter!

White on white card for the ICS Blog Hop. Star of Night is featured with Wink of Stella and some bling. Find more at www.faithgracestamp.com

Star of Night is by far my favorite set from the Holiday catalog and a perfect fit for this challenge. The camera does not pick up the shimmer from the Wink of Stella or the dimension this card has, which is such a shame! It’s glittery and gorgeous in person!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Jennifer’s page and see what she has created for us!

ICS Blog Hop – The Season of Gratitude

ICSBlogHop

Welcome to another month of the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop! So glad you are joining us. You may have hopped here from Claudia’s blog, or this may be your starting point. Tonight we are sharing creations using the monthly Paper Pumpkin subscription offered by Stampin’ Up!

Our kit in October

October Paper Pumpkin Kit. Subscribe today! Faith. Grace. Stamp. with Jen Guarino

My project

Festive home decor piece! Shaker tealight votive cover created using supplies from Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin kit. Faith. Grace. Stamp. with Jen Guarino

I’ve seen many fun votive holders during the fall season and I thought it would be fun to create a Shaker Votive cover as a table centerpiece. The window box was completed using a window sheet and a piece of vellum for a softer look and both the front and back of the box have the windows so that it’s beauty can be seen from both sides.

Now it’s time to hop over to my BFF Nichole’s blog and see what she has created. I would love to hear your thoughts on my project and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!

ICS Blog Hop Technique Time

ICSBlogHop

Hey Stampers and crafters! Welcome to the monthly Inspire, Create, Share blog hop. I am so glad to have you, whether you hopped over from Anna’s blog or if this is your first stop.

This month we are sharing our favorite techniques. I love techniques so much that I teach a monthly technique class – and the card I am sharing with you is a sneak peek of one of the techniques we will learn this month. My classes include one technique using paper and one technique using ink. This ink technique is called Salted Watercolor Background.

ics-sept-card

I absolutly love the rich colors of this card and the copper cutout using the Detailed Floral Thinlit is so dramatic, wouldn’t you agree? There isn’t much in the way of bling or accessories on this card because I want the star of the show, the technique, to stand out.

If you would like to join me for this class, or would like to purchase a class kit with complete instructions please leave me a comment or send me an email. Classes/kits include 4 cards – 2 of each technique, with envelopes and are only $15 or available for free with a minimum purchase.

Now it’s time to hope on over to Tina’s blog and see what she has for us!

ICS Blog Hop – Fabulous Framelits

ICSBlogHop

It’s the first Wednesday of the month so that means it’s time for the ICS Blog Hop! I am so excited that you are here.

This month we are showcasing our Fabulous Framelits! Did you know that Stampin’ Up! offers 52 different sets of framelits! That is such a huge selection to choose from! My project used 3 different sets between the gift item and the coordinating card.

Aug ICS Blog Hop

This was a wedding gift for my son’s youth group leader who got married last weekend. I used their invitation as the inspiration for patterns and colors. Their wedding was an evening filled with family, fun and faith. The bride and groom met last fall at a youth event held at church and now they are husband and wife. I love that our Large Letter Framelits and Large Number Framelits make personalized gifts so easy! The Sunshine Wishes thinlits made a coordinating card quick and easy to add!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Megan’s blog and see what she has for us. Thank you so much for hopping by tonight! I would love to know what you thought of my project! Be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post.
