Global Stamping Friends Anniversary Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,

We are back at Global Stamping Friends for our One Year Anniversary!  I haven't been part of the blog hop for that long but it's a great achievement and we are celebrating with another hop!

Our theme for this blog hop is anniversary and I've gone traditional with a twist!  

I absolutely adore this paper and knew I had to use it for my card.  I added the scalloped border from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.  To create the crosshatch effect, I used some new washi that will be available in the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue launching on 1 September.  It's pretty special!  

I heat embossed my sentiment in gold and added some leaves from a new Leaf Punch in Pear Pizzazz to match the colours of the DSP.  I used Pool Party for the background piece.  To hop to the next blog simply click the next arrow and head on over to Christina's blog for more inspiration.

I really hope you can join us for our One Year Anniversary blog hop and comment along the way.  A full blog list is shown below.

Happy hopping,

Rachel x
