Today I am playing along with the Greek Isle Incentive trip Blog Hop! This is a blog hop for earners of the Greek Isle Incentive trip coming up in July 2019! I am so excited about this trip! I can't wait!
The theme for December is a project using products from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catty.
For my card today, I am using some fun new products including a new bundle coming in the Occasions catalogue starting on January 3rd, 2019.
The bundle is called Beauty Abounds which includes the Beauty Abounds Stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies. These dies are absolutely stunning! See that big butterfly image that covers the entire front of my card? That's actually 2 large dies! Yes, Two!
I cut the background one using Lovely lipstick Cardstock and the one at the front was cut using Basic Black Cardstock. Next, I just used a few glue dots to adhere then to each other and then to my card front. So easy and what a dramatic result! I am in love with these new dies. I can see so many possibilities for carefully cutting them apart and using them individually on projects too.
The stamps in the Beauty Abounds set are beautiful as well. Check out the background circles behind my greeting. These stamps are precisely cut to make them look this way with the light and dark circles. I did not "stamp off" to get this effect. It reminds me of the Bokeh technique. So much fun!
If you like what you see, please leave the designer a little note. It sure makes my day when someone leaves me a comment and I'm sure the other designers feel the same.
I hope you like my project today and you will keep hopping along with the Blog Hop to see what all the other Greek Isle Incentive trip earners have created to share with us. Here's the list of hoppers. Just click on any name to take you to the next blog.
