New Craft Stash Blog Hop



Welcome to Day 2 of the...




I am so excited today to be hopping along today on the New Craft Stash Blog Hop! What does this mean? The idea of this just for fun Blog Hop is that the participants are using something new--"New" meaning - new to the papercrafting market, new to the participants, or newly discovered in our Craft Stash - you know the stuff you bought, tucked away and forgot about! The Blog Hop is split over three days, so if you missed Day 1 you can go to Ingrid Blackburn's blog to get a list of links for the Day 1 participants. By following the hop you have a chance to win one of 6 prizes plus there are a few other prizes along the stops of the hop.

For my card today I am using the new Essentials by Ellen Inner Mermaid stamps and designer dies! I combined my new stamps and dies with some stamps and dies that I have had for some time now that got filed away and forgotten.




I created a video for you to show you how my shaker card was put together. Some stamping, die cutting, embossing and ink blending to create this porthole shaker-whoa, is that a mermaid swimming by?






I hope you enjoyed my video. Don't forget to comment you way along the hop so that you will be entered for your chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous sponsors!




Now it is your turn to complete the Blog Hop. I am sure you will be inspired by all of the participants posts...
