Stamp Of Approval Blog Hop

This is my second post for today. To see my Papertrey Ink Countdown post, click HERE or scroll down :)

Hello! I am thrilled to be hopping along with a talented group of girls for the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Blog hop! If you are not familiar with Stamp of Approval, you can check out all of the details on Catherine Pooler's website! I have to tell you, I was thrilled when I opened up this box of Holiday goodness! So many pretty stamps and dies! It was like Christmas morning!!



For my card, I used the gorgeous snowflake dies from Casual Fridays for my card. I used the inlaid die cut technique. I laid the snowflakes down on my card stock where I wanted them and ran it through my Big Shot. I took all the pieces out, then cut the same three snowflakes out of the three shades of card stock. I added some Score tape to the back of my white piece behind where the snowflakes were cut out, then flipped it over and added the colored snowflake pieces back into the cut out spaces. 



I stamped the sentiment in black dye ink and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins!

SOA is giving away two boxes to two lucky commenters, so be sure to comment here, and on all the blogs along the way in the hop! The winner will be announced Friday, Oct. 16th on the Stamp Of Approval blog! Good luck! 

Here is a list of the entire hop! Enjoy!

I'm also playing along  with "Christmas Anything Goes" challenge over at Stamp Nation  this month, using the amazing Holiday Magic Collection from Stamp Of Approval. What an amazing box of stamps and dies!   My card uses only supplies from the Holiday Magic Collection.





You can see the whole card, and find out more about the challenge and all of the fun things going on at the Stamp Nation website

Thanks so much for stopping by!
