Thin Cuts Blog Hop



Welcome to our Thin Cuts Blog Hop!  This hop features our newest Thin Cuts that are available in the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog!  If you came from Wendy Kessler's Blog you are on the right track!  If you are just starting the hop, it is a big circle so when you get back to me, you will know you finished the hop!  You will find the next blog to hop to at the bottom of my post!


I chose to feature two new thin cuts.  First, I chose the Budding Peony Stamp + Thin Cuts.  I stamped the flower in Charcoal Ink and then colored it with the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush.  The center of the peony was colored with the Gold Shimmer Brush.  The leaves were colored with the Sap Green ShinHan Touch Twin Marker.  The picture does not show the shimmer of the peony which is really pretty!  I layered the flowers on top of the Stitched Rectangle Frames of Linen and Ballerina Cardstock.  The lovely Feels Like Home Paper is used for the base of this card.   I added Gold Glitter Gems for added sparkle.

February Stamp of the Month - Heartfelt Sentiments


Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Heartfelt Sentiments.  If you have come here from Haley Dyer's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

I felt like most people would think this stamp belongs on a scrapbook page because it is so big but I wanted to show that you can use it on a card too!  My card really is pretty simple!  If you love to color, then you will love this set!


I stamped the large image two times with Charcoal ink. First, onto a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white cardstock and then onto a scrap piece of cardstock.  Because I used ShinHan Touch Twin markers, I did not stamp the image directly onto the card to color.  The markers do bleed through to the other side. After coloring the flowers and leaves, I tied some Silver Embellishing thread around the card. On the stamped scrap piece, I colored the word outlines for Heart Happy and then trimmed closely around the edge.  I popped this piece up with 3D thick foam dots and adhered directly over the the words on the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 stamped piece. I used the little dots stamp to fill in all the 'white space' around the flowers.  Finally, I added a few sparkles for a finishing touch!

Heart Happy Blog Hop


The month of love is right around the corner and we've got the perfect paper  - Heart Happy!  Close To My Heart actually released this limited time exclusive paper pack in December.  This exclusive paper suite includes, paper, coordinating cardstock, sticker and a stamp set!  You can purchase each separately, getting exactly what you want or you can SAVE and purchase a WYW kit that includes everything you need to create a 2 single page layouts, a two page layout, 10 cards and 5 tags!  

Today, we've got some great projects to share using the Heart Happy products!  If you came from Melinda's blog you are on the right track.  You will find the next blog to hop to at the bottom of my post.  This hop is a big circle.  If you are just starting, when you get back to me you will know you completed the hop!

Let's check out what I created! This paper pack has some great patterns in this pack that are great for non-valentine themes.  I wanted to showcase this paper in a non valentine way.



















I based this layout off of the layout that is included in the I Heart Us Workshop Your Way kit.  The left page is pretty close to original but I changed up the right page to include more photos for the sizes I needed.  I love how easily it is to adapt and adjust existing layouts for other themes!  The only stamping on this page is the title!  All my other accents came from the Cut Apart Sheet! Let's take a look....


I used the glasses from the Cut Apart Sheet but I didn't want the "YOU ARE" words to show.  I just wanted it to say "Spectacular".  So I strategically placed the flowers over the left lens to cover up the words.


Here is an "OOPS" that actually became a "That's ok!".   I stamped the words "BEST DAY" with the Simply Said Stamp set and the word "Ever!" with Erin's Hand.  See the 'heart' where the letter "v" should be?  That was actually an "OOPS!".  I place the 'v' on my block facing down with the back side of the stamp up!  I didn't realize it until after I had stamped my title.   But I thought this looked like a heart so I left it!  (You probably wouldn't have even known that if I had not pointed it out!).  BTW, this month only - January, ALL of our Alphabet Stamps are 35% off!!  The two that I used here are my very favorites!
