August Blog Hop Button-ResizedWelcome to our August Blog Hop!  You may have hopped over after seeing Diana’s cute project, but if you’re just joining us, please take a minute and see what the rest of the Di’s Country INKers have for you!

This month, we have chosen to highlight the Big Shot and the ‘Buy a Big Shot Get a Bundle’ promotion. Through August 31, get an exclusive Framelits and Stamp Set Bundle for FREE when you purchase a Big Shot. Or, if you already own a Big Shot, get a 15 percent discount on select bundles. Check it out here!

One of the perks of attending Convention this year was that we were able to buy and take home product Blog Hopfrom the Holiday Catalog.  One of the first things I jumped on (and will be available as one of the promo freebies!) is the Bright and Beautiful Stars bundle.  The stamp set is called Bright and Beautiful, and it coordinates with the Stars Framelits – here’s the first card I made with the set.  I started out CASE-ing the sample from the catalog, but remembered that I wanted to try Blackberry Bliss accented with gold and red in some of my Christmas cards this year.  I’m loving it!  I started with a base of Brushed Gold cardstock layered with Blackberry Bliss.  I did some heat embossing over Brushed Gold and Shimmer White cardstock for the stars and colored the rhinestones with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities marker.

I experimented a little with the embossing powder and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to white which is what I used on the bottom and top stars.  It’s hard to photograph sparkly stuff, but this might give you the idea… Blog Hop 2Photos, of course, just can’t capture all the sparkle and shine.  You’ll just have to come over and see the card for yourself…

Thank you so much for stopping by -it was lovely visiting with you today.  Now, off you go to see what Kathya has made!
