July Blog Hop with Sean & Regina


WELCOME TO THE JULY BLOG HOP!
(please scroll down for the Sweet 'n Sassy new release hop)

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in this new blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating the Christmas/Winter season! Most of us are going through extreme heat right now and we are looking for some relief!  When I think of relief, I think of a crisp winter’s day watching the snow falling and watching the neighborhood children outside playing and laughing.  I’m starting to cool just thinking about it! 

We have some amazing creations for you to see and what's even better is that there are goodies you can win!

I used the reverse masking technique on my card. I used a Spellbinders large oval and cut out a template to use as a mask. next I stamped the script background. My next step was to place the glimmer screen where I wanted it and then sponge all around it.
Supplies:
Background Stamp: Light of Christmas
Cardstock: Stampers select white, Bazzill shimmer blue 
Glimmer Screen snowflake: Tattered Angels
Other: Distress inks, Ribbon, Spellbinder Lg. Oval die
