Celebrating Cath & Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Hey there! I’m so excited today to be participating in a very special blog hop featuring brand new stamps and dies from the one and only Cath Edvalson! She’s teamed up with Technique Tuesday and had her own designs made into fantastic stamps and dies that I just love.
Most people know Cath as the former Creative Editor for Paper Crafts magazine and the writer of the Moxie Fab World blog. I was lucky enough to know Cath in real life when I met her during my internship at Paper Crafts in 2008. And she’s just as fun, sweet and creative as you’d imagine her to be! I spent a lot of time with her during my Utah adventure and she made me feel at home even though I was across the country from everyone I knew. I’ll never forget her kindness and the fun times we had together.
I just wanted to share that because it makes this blog hop extra special for me. To see a friend getting to experience such a fantastic creative opportunity is a joy. She deserves it and her designs are fantastic! So let’s get on to the hop, shall we?
Heart Thanks Card | Kalyn Kepner
I created this thanks card using the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set and the Garden Leaves die set. I stamped and heat embossed the heart stamp on watercolor paper then painted it with some Distress Inks and water. I die cut the leaf die out of teal cardstock and added those behind the heart. And of course added some rhinestones as a finishing touch!

And what would a blog hop be without some awesome prizes, of course?
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 – pretty sweet huh?
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, you need to leave a comment any of the blog hop stops. You 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.
