Season's Givings Blog Hop 2015


Happy 2015 and welcome to the next stop on the Season's Givings Blog Hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by--today and every day.  This hop is our way of saying thanks to you, our readers, for all of your support and encouragement.  You should have arrived here from Laura's blog.  If not, be sure to start at the beginning of the hop at the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog.  You can also find a full list of participating bloggers at the bottom of this post.  You don't want to miss a stop since every single stop on this hop is offering prizes!

Pop Fizz Clink New Year card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps

In honor of the new year, I put together a festive design using stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps.  I've never been a big fan of metallic gold, but I have to admit it's growing on me, especially on designs like this one!  I'm looking forward to lots of great things in 2015 and hope that you are, too.


I've put together a great prize package for one lucky visitor.  The package includes two 6x6 paper pads (one from Studio Calico, one from Crate Paper), a large Woodgrain Background stamp from My Favorite Things, some assorted inks from my favorite ink company, IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko, some trendy wood veneer speech bubble accents, and some striped washi tape that somehow rolled out of the frame before I took the photo.  There's also a bottle of irRESISTible Pico Embellisher.  If you haven't tried this yet, you need to!  It's a super cool way to add texture and dimension.   You can draw or write with it and it resists ink, too.  A few more things just may find their way into the package before it gets mailed . . .  Just leave a comment on this post letting me know something new you want to try out this year in your crafting.  I'll select a winner from comments left on this post by 11:59 PM (EST) on Sunday, January 4.  The winner will be posted here on Monday, January 5.

Thanks again for stopping by today--and happy new year!  I'd love it if you'd stop by again or connect with me on Facebook and/or on Instagram. Your next stop on the hop is Chaitali's blog.  The full list of participating bloggers can be found below.  

Lori Tecler--you're here!


Materials Used:
By the Glass and New Year Cheer stamp sets, Perfect Little Black Dress and Golden Tiara inks, 24 Karat Gold, Perfect Little Black Dress, and A Blanc Check cardstock, By the Glass dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); circle die (Spellbinders); gold sequins (Michaels); white paper doily; foam tape

  177. I am thinking of taking a crochet class this year. With card making, the only thing I tend to shy away from is using stamps that need to be colored. I'm not very good at that and wish that I would be.

    Thank you for sharing your talents and for being a part of this Fantastic blog hop!!

    Have a Wonderful 2015!!!

  191. Your card looks great. I love metallic gold but I think it looks best when used with restraint the way you did it on your card.

    Sometime in this coming year I would love to try Mixed Media techniques on my cards. I tend toward Clean and Simple, so it would be a nice growing experience for me. Happy New Year!
