Day 1 Glitter Queens Blog Hop


Welcome to the very first Glitter Queens Blog Hop, I have a feeling there will be many more!! If you are going in order, you arrived from Eileen's Blog, aren't her projects great using the Merry Winter Set?  Just gorgeous!  At the bottom of my post you will find arrows to go either back or forward and also a list with everyone's blog linked, just in case Blogger acts up and doesn't want to cooperate.  Now, on to the project!
 This week I will be using the wonderful brand spankin' NEW stamp set called Gently Falling.  This stamp set is from the new Spice Cake Product Suite in the Holiday Mini, you will be seeing lots more of this suite this week.  Complete with BIG buttons, designer series paper, stamps, and fabric.  
And one more close-up of the button and leaves. 
Supplies used: 
    Stamp Set: Gently Falling (C#123804 W#123802)
    Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz, River Rock.  
    Designer Series Paper: Spice Cake (#124003)
    Cardstock: Very Vanilla
    Fabric: Spice Cake (#124066)
    Accessories: Designer Buttons Spice Cake (#124113)
 **The leaves were made by stamping in either Soft Suede or Early Espresso, Rock and Roll Technique, stamped on Very Vanilla, cut out, then ink the edges** 
      Sorry for the dark pics, I promise the rest of the weeks will be better.  I had to do a make-shift photo shoot in the kitchen, I am currently moving bedrooms and making myself a craft room, whoo hooo!!! 

                Visit my store Altered Scraps to order all the goodies you need to make this card.  
See you tomorrow with another project, and don't forget to leave me a comment, I will have blog candy during the Blog Hop and all you have to do is leave me a comment!! 
     Also, for every $50 spent with me this week, get your name in the hat to win a Clear Mount Gently Falling Stamp Set!!!   
          Next stop is Candice, have fun and see you tomorrow!!
