Cuttin' and Stampin' 2014 Design Team Blog Hop

Blog Hop Blinkie

Can you believe Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge Blog has been going for over a year now? It has gone by so fast and we have had so much fun creating and sharing projects with you.  Starting the first of the year we decided to make a few changes.  These changes include bringing you different types of projects, and to do that we needed to increase the number of members on the team.  We also decided to create two teams, Green Team and Orange Team.

Today we are introducing the Green Team.  The Orange Team will be featured tomorrow, February 1.

Be sure to stop by each of the team members and welcome them to our 2014 Design Team.  We will have a drawing for each day of the hop.  Just leave a comment below and at each stop along the way.  We will announce blog winners next Friday along with our regular weekly winners.

You should have arrived here from Janet's blog.

I'm a very eclectic paper crafter and have lots of fun creating projects and cards using many different styles, depending on the project.  Here's my card that showcases my CAS style:

I used a stamp, die, and sentiment from the Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamp set and matching die set.  The background was embossed and splattered with Copic White ink.  Edges of the card were sponged with SU white ink.  The snow mounds were die cut from a PTI die and then the edges sponged using Bordering Blue ink.  The metal snowflake is by PaperStudio.

Your next stop on the hope is Doris.

Meet the GREEN TEAM:

  1. Like the way the embossing compliments the Wintery snowman image. Especially like how you made the snow strips of curved paper that you placed the snowman on.

  2. I love your card, but all this snow this year is wearing me out!! Welcome to the team!

  3. What a GREAT card!!! So simple, but yet so detailed. And LOVE how the embossed snowflakes enhances the snowman. Love your description for your style-"eclectic" papercrafter and how it all depends on the project you are working on. I am the same way-it all depends on the project and what I am working with (digis, stamps, dies, etc.). Again, just love, love, love your card. Thanks so much for sharing and for the inspiration!!!
