Dad is Rad Blog Hop

Welcome to our special Blog Hop!  Today we are featuring one of our June specials - Dad is Rad!  The products in this workshop kit include the stamp set and other items to create one 12" x 1Lets get started on the hop! If you came from Melinda Everitt's Blog you are on the right track! At the bottom of my post, you will find the link that will take you to the next blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of hoppers HERE.

I was inspired by one of the cards to create this one page layout.  Can you guess which one from the picture above?  

I cut 1/4" strips in Sapphire, Crystal Blue, Juniper and Toffee and used White Burlap Ribbon.  To Stamp "Rad" I started with the 'd' and worked backwards inking in Juniper, Crystal Blue and then Sapphire ink. This was a fun layout to create and I liked how it came out!

Remember!  Our special Dad is Rad workshop kit is ONLY available until June 30th!  Contact your consultant to order or you can order from my website HERE:

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - A Bushel & a Peck

Welcome to the JuneStamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp is A Bushel & a Peck. This adorable stamp has 15 images!! If you came from Michelle Johns' Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE.

What an ADORABLE stamp set!  This stamp is a lot of fun for coloring!  Even though this is the JUNE stamp of the month, it made me think of August and autumn colors so I pulled out some Enchantment colors to create my card.  I started with a Sapphire pattern paper from the Enchantment Fundamental paper pack and New England Ivy and Saffron cardstock.

I felt the New England Ivy cardstock piece was too plain, so I used the 'stems and leaves' image to stamp a pattern onto it.  It gave it a nice background texture.  After coloring my bushel of apples, I cut it out and adhered it to my card with 3D foam tape.   To finish my card, I added Gold Glitter Gems - you can get these gems for 25% off in June!

Here are all of the products I used to create my card:

June Special - Create the Rainbow

I just can not get over how fast this year is flying by!  Did we even have a spring?  If you live in Middle Tennessee - probably not much!  We are full blown into summer weather here!  Today I wanted to share a NEW special that Close To My Heart has for you!  I think you will LOVE it!!

If you are familiar with Close To My Heart and our products, then you will know that our cardstock is sold either in 24 sheets of ONE color OR you can purchase a Combo pack which contains 20 sheets - 2 of each of 10 colors in a pack. There are 4 different Combo packs that you can choose from - Basic (Browns & Greys), Enchantment (darker more Autumn type colors), Whimsy (Pastels) and Adventure (Bright colors). The 1-color packs usually are too much of one color unless you are doing a big project that uses alot of one color of cardstock. Our Combo packs are great but how many times have you needed more or less of a couple of the colors??

We've got a great Cardstock special in June!! This month you can CREATE your own rainbow of color cardstock! This special features these exclusive cardstock bundles at 25% off! (Each combo pack contains 4 each of 3 colors or the Rainbow pack - 2 each of 6 colors)

BUT WAIT!  That's not all!  You will also save on individual spools of Fundamentals ribbon, and select embellishments at 25% off the retail price. You can pick and choose the colors that fit your projects best. 

As you create the rainbow yourself, add an extra splash of color with the special's exclusive Be a Rainbow stamp set (D1813) $17.95.

This set of 23 stamps comes with sentiments, quotes, and images coordinating with the Create the Rainbow theme!
