Seasons Givings Blog Hop

Hello and Happy New Year! Today we are honored to join a huge annual blog hop, a concept started by Latisha Yoast to say "THANK YOU!" to our wonderful blog readers and share some extra goodies. Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post for the giveaway info, as well as the list of companies and bloggers participating. Every single blog along this hop is sharing a giveaway! You won't want to miss it!

But first, Ilina is here to share a little New Year's cheer with you! Take it away, Ilina!

Hi everyone, Happy New 2019!!! This is Ilina and in the spirit of the new year I am sharing an elegant (black and gold) New Year's day card featuring the Party Confetti Fancy Die along with the Wishes Stamp & Cut set.

To make the card I started with die cutting the Party Confetti Fancy Die from shimmery black card stock and set it aside. Next I die cut the Wishes sentiment from the Stamp & Cut set. I did this twice from gold card stock and adhered the die cuts together. 

Next on piece of vellum I stamped "Sending New Year's" with Versamark and embossed with Gold embossing powder. Using the Circle Infinity Dies I die cut a circle. Adhered the "Wishes" die cut to the vellum circle and let it dry.

In the meantime I adhered the black die cut to a gold top folding note card. Adhered the vellum circle, trimmed the side a little and added few Champagne sequins to finish the card off.

For our giveaway, we're offering all of the products Ilina used on today's card! That's a prize package valued at $86 retail! To enter, let us know your goal for the coming year. You have until Friday, January 4 at 11:59pm PST to enter, and we'll announce the winner the following week.

And now for the hop list - it's a long one, but full of fabulous giveaways! Have fun hopping along!

A stunning card Ilina, that background die is perfect for new years but also ANY celebratory occasion. Very well done as always.
My goal for 2019 is to take more time out for myself for my health and mental well being. (My craft room is my happy place and THAT in and of itself is good for my mental well being!)
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2019! One goal is to use my time more wisely to make more cards & tags to give away, bring more smiles.
It’s always better to give the pretty cards & tags away, knowing you’ve made someone’s day with a special gift.

Love all the Hero Arts creative tools – Thanks for all you create :)

My goals for next year are simple: first, finish the eight papercraft projects that need finishing; second, finish the three embroidery projects that are left; and last, work on three new designs. These and others will—in nineteenth-century parlance—keep me out of the oyster cellars and saloons.
