Precious Remembrance Shop Blog Hop!

Hello PRS fans!!!  Today the PRS design team is showcasing a brand new PRS stamp set called "Joy"!! YAY!!  Love it when we get to showcase a new PRS set!  If you got here from the blog of the super talented Geri, then you are on the right track.  If not, head over to the PRS blog and start the hop from the beginning.  At the end of this post I will have all the details about how you can win this fabulous new set. 




I went for a clean and simple look for my card.  I used some non-traditional colors for my card and so I will be posting this to the current Less is More challenge.  I started by stamping the sentiment strip that says "Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year" multiple times (8 to be exact!) using aqua ink.  I then stamped the wreath in pink and then over stamped it using watermark ink.  Iridescent embossing powder was applied and then heat set.  I die cut the wreath using some Spellbinders plain circle dies.  The wreath was attached and the sentiment stamped underneath with black ink.  To finish things off I added some tiny pink sequins (from Verve) and an aqua baker's twine bow.


Now for the details on how to win this set!
