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!
