Embellish Magazine Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to your next stop in the first ever Embellish Blog Hop! Here is what the excitement is all about, the Premiere Embellish Magazine issue! Check out the issue details here.
So, join me today along with Embellish Magazine for a blog hop filled with creativity, tips, inspiration and prizes.

The designers participating in today's hop have all created a project using the colors (red, turquoise, brown & kraft) and the embellishment (twine) from the new magazine issue. Here is my creation for the hop...
Stamped a kraft base with two different sized polka dot labels, from Vintage Labels, in Hawaiian Shores and rounded the bottom corners. Attached a strip of Beautiful Blooms pattern paper and stamped a sentiment from Up, Up & Away in Dark Chocolate.
To incorporate the twine element, I created this lovely. By using small lengths of twine and attaching the ends to the back side of a pretty button, I was able to create this super simple twine flower.
Just so you can see how easy this flower truly was to create, here is a picture of the back of the flower. Just used a 1/2" glue dot on the back of the button to hold the twine end in place. To attach it to the card, simply attach another glue dot atop the twine and adhere to the card.

Now for more fun and inspiration! Here is the list of participants:

Don't forget to leave comments on every blog. Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs. A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts Twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon. All details can be found here.

Hope you enjoy the hop!!!
