December 2018 Stampers Dozen Blog Hop

Hello stampin' friends!  Welcome to this month's edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!  If you're stopping by my page for the first time, WELCOME!  I hope you come back often...and if you've been here before, I'm very happy to have you back.  :)

Our theme this month is "Non Holiday", so I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at an upcoming beautiful new stamp set and framelits.  The stamp set is called Beauty Abounds and it coordinates with the Butterfly Beauty framelits.  Oh. My. Gosh.  This framelit set is AMAZING!  Let me show you my card and then I'll explain why this is one of the coolest framelit sets we've had yet!

All of the pieces in the framelit set are nice, and there are a LOT of them--several different sizes of butterflies and a couple of neat floral/flourish pieces...but my FAVORITE are the two very large framelits I used on my card.  What is so neat about them is that they layer, which is how I achieved the lighter colors underneath a layer of darker color.  And I even took it one step further by cutting the bottom layer out of three different colors, then cutting them apart before layering the top so that my butterflies are three different colors!

I also discovered something else when I was making this card...I cut the top butterfly layer from Basic Gray cardstock and after I layered it, I felt like it needed just a little something so I brushed Wink of Stella over it...the Wink of Stella turns to a gold sheen when it's used on gray!  I'm not sure how well it translates in the photo but it sure is pretty in real life!

The other fun thing I did on this card was pop the butterflies up by attaching them with mini stampin' dimensionals...love these little sticky dots!

These products will be available to purchase on January 3rd when the 2019 Occasions Catalog goes live...and it is also the start of Sale-A-Bration which means you can earn a FREE SAB item for every $50 you spend!  Whoop! Whoop! My favorite time of year.  <3

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek!  If you're ready to hop to the next blog, just click the link below to head over to see what Karie has to share!

Thanks again for stopping by!  Until next time...happy stampin'!
