June Stamp of the Month - Ice Cream Dream



Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Ice Cream Dreama set of 7 stamps. If you have come here from Cat Nowak'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.




How fun it is to have an Ice Cream themed stamp for June!  I couldn't WAIT to create with this set.  This stamp set was calling out for ShinHan Touch Twin Markers to me.   I paired them with the fun Confetti paper for my card.



I added Purple Shimmer Trim and pink Flamingo Dots to accent the card.  Also, to make it even more fun I added Liquid Glass to the windows of the Ice Cream Truck!  



If you haven't had a chance to try out our new ShinHan Touch Twin markers, you can do so in my next Technique Tuesday Class!  Be sure to check out my Upcoming Events Calendar tab for all the information on my next class!



Remember!  
This stamp is just $5 when you spend $50 in Close to My Heart products during the month of May!  If you don't already have a consultant, shop my website at www.stampinheaven.ctmh.com 

Now it is time to hop over to Jen Patrick's blog and see what she has created! 
You are in for a treat!

Taste of Summer - Finding the Words

I created these 8 4x4 cards for my mom for Mother's Day.   My mom loves to send little notes of Thanks, Thinking of You and more.  She always hand writes a little note of encouragement or expresses her appreciation for something.   I love it that she still does this rather taking to the internet to send an email or her phone to send a text.   (Something WE ALL do!).    I thought she would love to have a set of cards created with this cheerful Taste of Summer paper.



I used the stamp set Finding the Words for these cards.   I also used silver sequins coloring some of them with my ShinHan Touch Twin markers.  I love how you can match to any color you need!

Taste of Summer - For Someone Special

Here is anpther Taste of Summer sampling!  Today's card features the strawberry and orange print from our exclusive Taste of Summer paper pack!  


This is the 3rd card I created using the Heartstrings WOTG Cardmaking kit pattern.  I added started with the strawberry and orange print paper as my base instead of leaving it plain as directed in the Heartstrings pattern.  See the pattern I used below.


Once again, I used the Finding the Words stamp set along with the strawberry images from the Taste of Summer stamp set.  I accented the card with White Shimmer Trim and Pink Glitter Gems.

Taste of Summer - Simply Sublime

Ready for another Taste of Summer sampling?   Today I'm sharing a layout.  This layout started out from a sketch from one of the Make It From the Heart sketches but totally evolved into a sketch all it's own.  I had cut the papers which consisted of 3 pennant pieces that ran vertical across the pages.  I  left it laying unattached for a few days - never adding the adhesive because there was something about it I just didn't like.  I couldn't put my finger on it.   As I was getting ready for my Album In A Day workshop, I scooped it all up and put it back in the bag to take along with me thinking I'd finish it during the workshop.  When I pulled it out to work on it, I decided to change it up and this is what I ended up with.  I like it much better than my original layout.



To stamp my limes, I used 2nd generation stamping with Pear ink and then I rolled the edges in pear again to give it a darker tone around the rind.  My strawberries were stamped in Cotton Candy ink and then rolled in Cranberry.   I added Pink Glitter Gems for a final touch to my layout.

This is just one of 4 layouts and LOTS of cards that I have created using ONE Taste of Summer paper pack!  I still have more to share so be sure to come back later this week for another Taste of Summer Sampling!!  I'll be sharing another card I created on Friday!

Get your own exclusive Taste of Summer Paper Pack and Taste of Summer stamp set today!  This paper pack and stamp set are available ONLY during the Month of May (or while supplies last!).

Taste of Summer - Thanks so Very Much

Here is today's Taste of Summer sampling!


This card was very simple and it is one of THREE cards that I created using the Heartstrings Cardmaking WOTG instructions! I will be sharing the other two cards in the near future.  It is a good idea to keep your instruction brochures you get with the Workshop On the Go Kits!  You can use them over and over with other papers!



In addition to the Taste of Summer stamp set (lemons) I also used Finding the Words (D1646) a great stamp with lots of sentiments.  I added Purple Glitter Gems (Z1936) for accent.

Taste of Summer - Well, Hello!

Quick post today to share another card I created with the Taste of Summer Paper!  I created 4 layouts with this paper and have alot of scraps so I've been creating cards to!  This is my 4th card so far!

I found the sketch for this card on Freshly Made Sketches.  I had the perfect stamp set to use so I created this one quickly to make the Freshly Made challenge deadline which is today!


In addition to the Taste of Summer stamp (for the the lemons) I used the Tagged With Love stamp set.  This is a Hostess Only stamp that hostess can choose with their Rewards!  This stamp coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.   I used Thistle ink on the tag.  For the lemons, I first stamped in Canary Ink and then rolled the stamp in Honey.   I used Purple Glitter Gems, and Thistle Extra Thick Twine for embellishing.

May is National Scrapbooking Month!

May is National Scrapbooking Month and Close To My Heart is celebrating with a tasty paper pack! During the month of May, get the Taste of Summer paper pack for $8.95!   This pack of 12 B&T papers has 6 yummy designs.  Mix and match the papers for some fun flavors in your layouts and cards!


Not full yet?  Add the Taste of Summer stamp set for $17.95 and you can come up with really great desserts!


I have been busy creating a lot of layouts and cards from this paper pack and stamp set.  I will be sharing my creations all through the month so be sure to stop by often!

A few weeks ago I spent the weekend creating with my Spa Girls in Virginia.  The Spa Girls are my group of CTMH sisters that won the Spa Retreat back in 2010.  We had such a great time, we make sure to have a lunch reunion at Convention every year.  Last year we decided to get together for our own little retreat.  This year, we were able to get our Taste Of Summer papers just in time to take to our retreat!  We shared ideas for layouts and cards which was so much fun!   This first layout I am sharing was designed by Shannon Pelletier.  This layout is based on Sketch #6 in Make It From Your Heart Vol 2.  Once she designed the layout, we were able to take it and run away with embellishments!




















For this layout, Shannon added Pear Cardstock and then used the reverse side of one of the B&T papers for the photo mats.  The purple strips are zip strips!  I love the free-handed lines around the layout and photo mats that we drew with the journaling pen.  We stamped the lemon in Pear and Canary inks.  Then we cut out the middle of the lemon and layered it on top of the pear stamped lemon.   It doesn't show up in the picture, but we added liquid glass to the lemon.  When it dried, it has a clear shiny look.  To finish the layout we scattered some Purple Glitter Gems and also added Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon.
