SSINK Blog Hop - Mystery Supply Challenge

This month's blog hop theme with the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration girls is basically anything goes...with a twist! We each were assigned a design team member to send three mystery supply items to. They could be anything we wanted to send as long as they were current items from either the Annual or Holiday Catalog! A surprise envelope would come in the mail for us and we would then use these items to create something! It's such a fun concept and many times we get things that we don't even own and so it's a chance to play with new products! 

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 12 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Laura at Crafty Chicks Creating. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

My three items arrived in the mail from Jennifer Gregorsky. I didn't own any of the items she sent me, so I was thrilled to be challenged with these new goodies! Thanks for the fun Jenny G! :)

My items included:
  • 5/8" Gold Satin Ribbon
  • Delicate Ornament Thinlits Die (cut out of black glimmer paper)
  • Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack

I added the vellum piece to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Mini Glue Dots. I hid the glue dots (as you can see through on the vellum) with the Gold Satin Ribbon. I decided to make it look like the ornament was hanging from the big bow. The ornament is cut out of Black Glimmer Paper and I attached it to the vellum using glue dots, as well. I wanted an accent piece for the ornament, so I grabbed the Snowflake Wooden Elements (a favorite!) and added a large size Pearl Accent to the middle. I hand cut the banner and stamped Very Merry in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Shiny and Sparkly - Yes please! I really like how you paired your supplies with the wooden snowflake element and a very cute, short and sweet sentiment. I see a CASE in the very near future. Thank you for INKspiring me Heidi! :)

I love that black glitter die cut - I just cut it out of a scrap of black glitter paper and haven't figured out what to do with it yet. It is just so elegant! Beautiful card.

Beautiful! I love all the different elements and the mix of black glimmer paper and gold accents really helps dress it up, love it!
