Cath Edvalson for Technique Tuesday Blog Hop


Hip & Hooray!  I'm so excited to be taking part in a very special blog hop today celebrating the partnership of Cath Edvalson and Technique Tuesday!  Cath is incredible.  Total creative genius!  I've loved watching her paper projects unfold and now to see it in stamp and die form - I'm overjoyed!  

For my card, I played with the new Garden of Life stamp set.  It's amazing!   There's five sets total so you can find all of Cath's products here!
Here's what I created with it! 


Instructions:
1.  Using a circular motion (and dabbing excess in on a scrap), ink blend background. 
2.  Splatter lightly - to do this I simply used black watercolor. 
3.  Stamp and heat emboss images, fussy cut. 
4.  Stamp and heat emboss sentiment, trim and add strip of accent washi tape. 
5.  Assemble.  

Your next stop on the hop is Julia Stainton but for reference - here is the entire hop order!
Heather Campbell  <- You are here!

What's a hop without a prize?!?!

Technique Tuesday is going to give away three prizes. One person will a package consisting of all 5 of Cath's new products. Technique Tuesday will also give away two $25 gift certificates.  The three winners will be chosen at random from all the comments left during the hop on all the blog stops. To be eligible to win, blog hoppers need to just leave a comment any of the blog hop stops. The more comments they leave during the hop,  the more chances they have to win.  Folks have through midnight PST on Sept. 16th, 2015, to leave comments. The three winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on Sept. 18th, 2015. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking part in such a fun hop!  Have a great day!

Hi Heather - this is my first time visiting your blog (I'm only new to card making) and I LOVE your style. This is a fabulous card - elegant with impact. I love the way you set out your instructions on it too - I confess I get a bit lost in long paragraphs sometimes but the simple dot points steps are easy to digest and ever so helpful. Thank you - I'll definitely be back to visit again (in fact I've subscribed) :)
