CTMH New Product Blog Hop

If you came from Joy's Blog then you are in the right place! For a complete list of bloggers participating in the hop, please refer to Melinda's Blog.

Close To My Heart (CTMH) just release its Annual Inspirations book on August 1, and I can't help but feel excited to share with you my latest projects using the products that you see in the book. I used the Seaside paper packet and White Daisy 12x12 cardstock to make these 3x3 notecards. I am participating in an online swap and these cards will soon find their way to their new homes. :-D I kept the designs simple so it will be easy to adapt them for Home Gathering Workshops.

The stamp set that I used for the first notecard is from Cuddly Salutations. I added some White Enamel Stars which I colored using ShinHan Touch Twin Markers in B68 Turquoise Blue and B262 Cerulean Blue Light. I used Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape to emulate waves.

I used the Treasured Friendship stamp set for this next notecard. I stamped the background using Flaxen Exclusive Ink Pad and Chocolate Exclusive Ink Pad for the sentiment. I added a trio of sequins from the Silver Sequins Assortment, for extra sparkle.

For the last notecard I used the stamps from the Your Own Kind Of Wonderful set. I stamped the background paper with Sorbet Exclusive Ink. The smaller butterfly and the sentiment were stamped using Glacier Exclusive Ink. I dotted the "i" with Bitty Sparkles and anchored the corner with Durables Triangle Studs. I added a strip of Gold Shimmer Trim at the bottom.

Thank you for visiting, and please check out Carol-Anne's Blog next!

    1. Jean, I think with some adjustments in the proportions and perhaps adding a b&t strip or two, it will work!
