Star It! Blog Hop & Giveaway

 
Welcome to the Star It! Blog Hop & Giveaway!!! 
You should have arrived from my friend Jennifer Ingle's blog.  If not, start back at the beginning HERE at Nina's blog.
 
 
I'm here today sharing projects using some great stamps that my friend Nina Yang of Waffle Flower Paper Crafts designed for Avery Elle!  We all are using the stamps Simply Tags: Christmas along with the dies.  Thanks Nina for sharing your designs!!!
 
 I thought it would be fun to use a non-traditional somewhat retro color scheme for my cards today.  I sure wish you could see the star as I have coated it with a layer of coarse Martha Stewart glitter! 
 
Merry Christmas  
 
Here's a closeup of the focal point:

Here's my second card using the same color scheme.  For this card, I thought it would be fun to create my own wreath using the stamps in this set!  Again.....a retro feel with the Wonky Rectangle die as a layer!!!  I may go back in and add some stickles here and there.....just because :)
 
 
for you  
 
Now, there is a giveaway too!  There will be 4 random winners (one for each stamp/die listed) drawn from comments left on all of our blogs.  The winners will be announced on Nina's blog on the 18th.
