ESAD Goodbye Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello friends and a very warm welcome to you, thanks for stopping by. 

Today I am participating in the ESAD Goodbye Mini Catalogue blog hop. We are showcasing some of our favourites from the August-December 2020 mini catalogue. 

One of my favourites from this catalogue is the Peace and Joy bundle. I love all the layers you can create with these dies and stamps.

For my card I chose to showcase the stamps. I saw these projects by Artisan designer Lauren Alarid  and knew I wanted to recreate them as I loved the colours - silver and balmy blue together. And it uses a lot of my favourite dies too!

I embossed the background using the scripty embossing folder. I die cut the star and the starburst elements from the Stitched Stars dies. The Joy sentiment was stamped in misty moonlight ink and die cut with the  stitched so sweetly dies. 

I love how easily this card came together, it was a lot of fun to make.  Why not give it a try yourself? 

Make sure you head over to Leonie's blog to see her fabulous creations.
