Ringing In The New Year - blog hop

Pssst...if you're looking for my The Shabby Tea Room post, it's just one down from here :)

Hello everyone and welcome to a very special Ringing In The New Year blog post! I can't believe yet another year has come and gone! I'm so very thankful for a lot of things in my life and you are one of those things. I'm honored and humbled that you take the time in your busy life to visit my little blog week after week and as always, you are free to contact me with any questions or suggestion as to what you'd like to see here on the blog weather it be a specific stamp or new segment. I really do appreciate each and every one of you and can't thank you enough for all of your love and support! I hope with all my heart that 2014 brings you health, happiness and wonderful new adventures to enjoy.
Today I'm honored to have been asked to help a very sweet friend celebrate a dream come true...she started her own line of stamps! We have a small but fun filled blog hop for you today that starts at 2:pm cst. :)  Let's get started, shall we? 

I'm so very proud of my friend for all that she's accomplished. She started the ever popular Jo's scrap shack and now has branched out to start her very own stamp line, 3 Twenty Crafts! What a scary yet amazing step to take in life. I am wishing her success in her new adventure and am positive that 2014 will bring so many new and wonderful things for her!

If you're following along with the hop, you should have arrived here from Tina C's blog. If you didn't and want to start from the top of the hop, just head on back to Jo's Scrap Shack for a full list of participants :)

I paired up her beautiful Winter Wonderland set with some left over Bo-Bunny papers that I had from last weeks card I made for The Shabby Tea Room and came up with this....
Isn't it amazing how you can achieve such different looks with the same paper? This time around I chose  navy blue cardstock for my card base and I reversed the papers by using the pretty chevron pattern as a large layer and the snowflake pattern as a trim piece. I stamped the 3 Twenty Crafts sentiment from the Winter Wonderland set (don'tcha just love the pretty font??) on my focal panel and then stamped one of the little snowflakes from the set onto white cardstock, punched them out and popped them up using foam tape. I added some yummy iridescent sequins to finish it all off :)

Well, I'm last on the list and I thank you for joining us today. I hope you enjoyed this little hop and don't forget to stop in at Jo's Scrap Shack to see what all Jo has going on!!


  1. Such a pretty wintery card Tina! I like the frosty blues and sheer snowy whites!

  3. Hi Tina, this is a lovely card you've created using the Winter Wonderland 3 Twenty Crafts set. That is indeed a very pretty & versatile stamp & loved the way you showcased the sparkly snowflakes. These were perfect with the wonderful dp you chose. I'll be joining as your newest follower (and fellow DT member!) and hope you'll find time to visit me as well. Happy New Year.

    Pretty, pretty, pretty card.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Tina my lovely friend... this card is just beautiful! More so, are the beautiful words that you had to say about me and my blog/stamps. I appreciate you so very much and I am the one who is honored that you said YES to be apart of this New Year blog hop! Your card is just fantastic. I love how you stamped the snowflakes and then punched them out to pop them up. I have not seen this look yet using the stamps. I can say that the stamps are very versatile and you have showed just how versatile they can be! Love the papers that you decided to go with too. They work well with the theme and stamps. Thank you ever so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join the hop and make time to play with my stamps. I heart you my friend! Happy New Year!!!!!
