Die-Versions Blog Hop

Selected as a Favorite of the Week at Split Coast Stampers.


Welcome to the Die-Versions Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from Mary's blog , but you can always go back to the beginning here, if there is a broken link.



I absolutely love this Edge die "Believe". So much so, that I cut it four times in an ombre effect. The Jingle Bell is just the right size for card makers, and I really like how you can color it, stamp it or just leave it plain. The silver cord I added here is from Kreinik (you will find it in the sewing section of your local craft/sewing store).


I used Blue glitter glue and Silver Liquid Pearls on the bell also.
(You know I can't hardly make a card without my Liquid Pearls).

Of all the zillions of stamps I have, nowhere to be found was the little bit of sentiment I wanted to go with the Believe die, so I made it with my Silhouette software. 

I hope you are enjoying yourself today. Don't forget to leave a comment on each stop of the hop to be entered into the drawing for the $50 gift certificate to be used at Die-Versions.

Your next stop is:

Penny (you are here)

Each Friday I will give a shout out to all new Followers (click on Follower Button on the right side) and if you have a blog, I will make a link to you also.


Thanks for stamping by, and an extra special {mwah} for leaving a comment and/or following my blog....

What a beautiful effect you got with the repeated edge die! I have yet to add any edge dies to my collection but I keep adding to my wish list when I see you use them. Marvelous work Penny. Now I'm off to the start of this hop to see what other goodies I *wish* I owned. :)
