Cookin' It Up Amber Ink Style-A Holiday Blog Hop!

Hello! Welcome to the Amber Ink Holiday Blog Hop!  If you'd like to hop along with us, then start with our Ambassador of Awesomeness~Shannan Teubner!  If you are already participating in the hop, then hopefully you arrived here from Julia's fab blog!  There are some yummy prizes hidden along the way, so make sure you leave comments:)

We have been busy cooking up projects using a recipe that Pam a.k.a. incredimombo gave us (Pam is Amber's mom:)  The recipe is this:

Two colors from the same color family and a hint of another color plus any neutral along with 7 "procedures".  Since I'm here to represent Team Blue, this is what I came up with:


I went with my favorite blue ipapers~Starburst Blue Tiny Whisper, Snowflake Lace Blue Tiny, and Snowflake Lace Blue Tiny Hint.  The image comes from the adorable and super fun digi set Fish Wishes (also available as a clear stamp set).  Isn't he too cute???  So here is my recipe:

Three ipapers
Oval Nestabilities
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Stitching
CB Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder
=7 ingredients!

I also used the layout from this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #85.
Ok, now it's time to hop on over to Taylor's beautiful blog where I'm sure you'll find more wonderful goodies:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
