If you love Papier Tole then you’ll absolutely adore Mystic Feathers 3-D Foil Papier Tole.

 This gorgeous Feather’s Stamp clear acrylic stamp set is a must have!  This wonderful set features 20 clear acrylic stamps on a 6”x8” sheet. I love the variations in this set with the solid feathers and the detailed feathers, having both in a set can help you create the perfect layered look. It includes feathers, flourishes, stars and cute sentiments like, “Let your dreams take flight”, “Don’t let life ruffle your feathers”, “free spirit” and “fly high”!

Gail used the solid and intricate Feathers Stamps on this card by applying different shades of  perfect pearls directly to the stamps. The results are so stunning! Find out how to create your own card here.

 And of course Hot Off The Press included 2 sets of coordinating Dazzles™! Silver Mystic Dazzles™ will give your scrapbook layouts a whimsical touch!  There are three 6”x9” sheets that include 99 pieces of feathers, fancy hearts,  scrolls and sweet  sentiments such as, “You give my heart wings”, “Sometimes you  have to fall before you can fly”, “Free spirits have to soar”, “Feathered  Friends” and so  much more! They add the perfect finishing touch to any project. You’ll have the look of a heat-embossed image but all you do is peel and  stick! Even better, your Dazzles™ also come packaged with an idea sheet showing a finished card idea plus additional ideas for using Dazzles™!

Look at how beautiful they look on this colorful layout that Gail created! I love the way these Dazzles™ really frame the photo. You can find directions here.

Brand New Additions to Our Blog!

We are so excited to bring you some new features to our blog. We will have project ideas, color inspirations, new techniques and much more! My name is Amy Hurley-Purdie and I’m a new designer at HOTP, and could not be more excited about sharing time with all our wonderful friends (that’s YOU!) on this blogging adventure. First a little bit about who I am and what I do. I am a wife and mother to 9 children, some of brought into this world and some I’ve been blessed with the gift of becoming their mother. Mother to many, wife to one and friend to all : ) I’ve been a designer in the scrapbooking and card industry for 16 years. I love art and creating. I love sharing that love with others. I’m a bold, sophisticated vintage gal with a note of sassy and crazy. And a pinch of Geek! I love ALL THINGS paper crafting, and my favorite thing about this hobby is that it is a hobby where strangers can come together and share their crafting stash freely, and uplift one another with encouragement through their love of art! Crafters are the best!!!
