I Hear the bells

The Stampendous design team members are hoping like crazy this week!  



Today I am sharing a project using Core'dinations Cardstock and Cardinal Elements from Stampendous for our mini hop with them.


I embossed a piece of Black Magic Cardstock with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
Then I used a sand it gadget to sand away the black and reveal the red...awesome stuff, huh?


I stamped the Cardinal Elements from Stampendous two times.  I cut out one of the images and colored it with Copic Markers.  Then I cut it out and adhered it to the other stamped image with 3D foam Squares.  And then of course...I added some Aged Gold Embossing elements and heated from underneath to add a little "Frantage".


I hope you enjoyed my project today!
Make sure you hop all week and leave us some love!
