Blog Tour


Welcome to the next stop on your Blog Tour of the Jacksonville STARZ Family Tree!! I hope you are enjoying all the great sites so far and the beautiful handiwork! I also hope you are remembering to leave your comments and contact info to maybe get lucky with some Blog Candy.

If you’d like to join us for our next Tour, hop on over to your demonstrator’s site and sign up. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I’d love for you to join my team. Hard to beat the latest special from Stampin’ Up! Plus the freebie from my upline, Lee Conrey.

Here is my card and Blog Candy – Enjoy the rest of your tour and thank you so much for visiting!!

The base is Cherry Cobbler with a strip of Snow Festival dsp to contrast. I stamped the gingerbread man from Scentsational Season stamp set with Versamark on the card base. The Whisper White mat is cut with the Labels Collection framelits, pierced using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack (and tools) then the edges are smudged a bit with crumb cake. I tied and attached Gumball Green satin stitched ribbon to the dsp before adding the label. Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread were cut from More Mustard cardstock using the Holiday Collection framelits die and then stamped (“paper-to-stamp” method) with Versamark before I embossed them with the SCRUMPTIOUS Sugar & Spice embossing powder. I then attached them to the Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a bow tie and hair bow using Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. The heart was punched from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Small Heart punch and then after being added with a Stampin’ Dimensional, enhanced a bit further with Crystal Effects.  Hope you like it!

Here is my Blog Candy – Fabulous You – all you have to do is comment on my blog and leave your contact information to be entered into the drawing for this adorable set to be drawn this Sunday, November 4th (Is it November already?!?!)  Good Luck!!
