Mystery In the Blog Hop

This month for our Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop, we are using our Mystery Swap theme. Each participant sent three items (or four) to another participant, who then had to use all of those items in some way on their project.

My items came from Donna, and while I forgot to take a picture of what she sent me before I got started, here are the items from the online store images.

Before we get to the main event, you should have just left stop number 1 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Jenn @ Happy 2 Scrap 4 Life. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. Please leave us some blog love as you hop along. We always love to hear from our followers.

So what did I make with the four items that Donna sent me?

I colored the cute little dude with some Classic Ink Pads and my Blender Pen. You have to look really close to see it, but I strung the Silver Metallic Thread through the button in an X. Those Metallic Doilies are on the Weekly Deals this week! I'm definitely going to grab some while they are on sale! They make a great layering piece!

From my own stash, I used Mossy Meadow card stock for my base, the Winter Wonderland Vellum, some of that fabulous Corrugated Paper, and some Perfect Plum Candy Dots from the Regals collection. I also stamped a greeting from Happy Scenes in Mossy Meadow on Perfect Plum card stock. I cut that out with the Bitty Banners framelits. One final detail: that fabulous Curvy Corner Trio Punch!

After looking at this card, I've now got "Silver & Gold" from Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer running through my head! Now that I've got you singing it too, it's time to head over to see what Tobe received for her Mystery Supplies and what fabulousness she created with them!
