Hello World Blog Hop



Hey everyone! Happy World Cardmaking Day! I'm happy to be participating in a very special blog hop today. You should have arrived here from Laurel Beard's blog.

This is a special "Giving Back" blog hop hosted by Catherine Pooler. She's produced a special stamp set, designed by Chaitali Narla, to raise money for a very special cause.

Many of you know Jennifer (Jingle) Ingle. Her husband Sean is a teacher in a school where most kids are on a free and reduced lunch program, they don’t have computers at home or at school and the school doesn’t have the funds for a curriculum. In the spirit of giving his students the best education he can provide, Sean is working to raise funds to purchase computers for his classroom. You can read more here: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/chromebooks-for-urban-education/2208813/

All profits from the sale of this stamp set and the coordinating dies from Saturday October 1 - Friday, October 7 will purchase computers and other school supplies for Sean’s classroom in Boston.

To help get the word out about this fundraiser, we are hopping! Here is my card:




Starting with some patterned paper from the 6x6 Bloom paper pad by Crate. I used one of the border stamps from the Yay Stripes stamp set on the top and bottom border of the panel. Then I embossed the wreath from The Wonderful Wreath stamp set in gold. I added a bit of inking around the wreath to add some emphasis to the image as well as some splatter to the entire panel.

The sentiment from the Hello World stamp set was then added in Versafine. Finally, I added some copper and clear sequins around the wreath for some extra sparkle and texture.



Instead of simply adhering the panel to the card base, I stitched it on with some gold thread.

OK, time for you to head to your next stop, Kristie Goulet's blog. I've also included the full blog hop list below for your convenience. Enjoy the hop and please consider supporting this great cause!

  10. Simply gorgeous card, Miriam. I thought you embossed the wreath on vellum and was trying to figure out how adhered it without showing any adhesive, then I noticed it was actually stamped directly onto your background paper. :) Thank you for joining this special blog hop for the kids.
