INK & INSPIRATION | ALL ABOUT BLING

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Angie McKenzie from the USA. If you are starting here please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the inspirational projects the team has to share. The theme for this hop is "All About Bling"!     I love the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper, especially its clean elegant designs and stripes like ticking are my favourite!   I coloured the Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Real Red Stampin' Blend to co-ordinate with the Designer Series Paper and a little Real Red Glimmer Paper adds another little sparkle. All the products I've used are from Stampin' Up! and can be purchased directly from my On-Line Shop by clicking the Shop Now link at the top.   Thanks for visiting today and be sure to hop all the way around to see the gorgeous creations my fellow team members have created.

It's lots of fun, just watch out for your off-white walls, which may or may not now be splattered in ink!!! The wreath has been die cut in Vellum and Shaded Spruce Cardstock and layered up.
