Blog Hop!



It's Blog Hop Time!!!

I completely forgot that today was the 25th, until this morning. The theme today was Polka Dots, and although I don't have Polka Dot Basics, I do have Shapes by Design.

I was at a conference all day, so I knew I had to do something quick!

I instantly thought of Claire's Three Kings pattern. Claire is in love with PTI, and she is an AMAZING inspiration. I think that Claire and Lauren Meader are two of my favourite blogs to visit!

I was in such a rush today that I stamped the wrong side of the printed pattern.



I decided that instead of re-stamping the entire sheet, I would somehow cover up the lines.

This is what I came up with.



I went around all of the horizontal lines, and the points with Liquid Appliqué, then puffed it up. I wish I would have had more time to make a matching card, or add some embellishments, but over all, I am pleased with how this turned out.



I love the dimension of the LA on the tag that is also popped up on a pop dot.

Do yourself a favour, and visit Claire's blog to gain some amazing inspiration, and to try your own Three Kings gift box.

The best thing about stamping embellishments is that they cover up our mistakes so prettily!
