December 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Bloghop featuring, Candlelight Garden!  This bloghop celebrates posts from many, participating Close to My Heart Consultants who showcase what each has done using this SOTM.

It works as one big loop that can be started anywhere.  Just hop on board and follow the trail by clicking on links embedded in each person's post.  I will assume you just came from Jacquelin's Blog which technically came just before mine.  If you continue in forward movement, you will hop on over to Krista's Blog next.

Now that the technical issues are explained, here is my artwork:

It's a greeting card meant to recognize those great friends who encourage us in difficult times and when we appear less that stellar.  After all, we all have a broken fence somewhere in our lives, yet some gorgeous flowers if you look beyond the fence problem!  These are the products I used:
  • La Vie En Rose Paper Packet
  • Gold Foil Tape
  • Pink Enamel Gems
  • Poppy Cardstock
  • Pomegranate Cardstock
  • Watercolor Paper
  • Watercolor Paints
  • Paintbrush Set
  • White Daisy Exclusive Ink
  • Black Exclusive Ink
  • Black Pigment Ink
  • 5.5" x 4.25" White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
  • 3L E-Z Dots Adhesive
  • Gold Sequins
  • Microtip Scissors
Please buy this stamp sometime during this December of 2015 because it's adorable and so versatile.  You may qualify to get it for $5.  Contact your regular consultant or click here to order yours on my retail site.

Enjoy the rest of the bloghop!

September 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome to the September 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop featuring "Paper Garden", a stamp set of 10 images.  

This may be your launching page.  Or, you may have come here via Jacquelin Green's fabulous post. Whatever the case, when you are done looking at my page, you will click on the link below which will take you to the next blog in this hop.  It's one big loop and eventually you will be back where you started.  There is a list of the bloghop order at ifyoublingit.blogspot.com.

The gals that come to my classes are mostly interested in making cards.  So I created a card without a sentiment so that it can be used for multiple occasions.  One can easily add a font using our cricut cartridges or with fundamental stickers.  

The base is the grid-like B&T from Zoe.  The image is stamped with Cocoa Pigment Ink onto the arrows B&T also from Zoe.  I used Whisper Cardstock to frame the image.  Before adhering the framed part, I added Teal, White, and Coral Glitter Tape.  I'm in love with the accessory splash from our new, Annual Expressions 2015-16 so I did a version of this in two corners using Aqua Dots and Silver Sequins.  Of course I used our 4.25x5.5 card base from the White Daisy Value Pack and the 3-L E-Z Dots Adhesive.

You may order Paper Garden by clicking here or contacting your local consultant.

Next you'll visit Kathy Burrow's amazing post to see what else you can do!

July 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome to the July 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop! This month we are featuring, "Life is Wonderful", a wonderful stamp set.*

This is a bloghop that features MANY talented Close to My Heart Consultants.  If you started at the beginning of the blog, your last stop was most likely Lori Brown's blog.  When you finish on my post, click on this link to go to Michelle Stewart's Blog.  It doesn't matter if you are hopping forwards or hopping backwards because this is one big loop.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a list of the order at ifyoublingit.blogspot.com.  

I made a greeting card to use at my next card class.  Because the beach on the Oregon Coast is my favorite place to think, "Life is Wonderful", I made a card that feels all beachy.  You are welcome to think of your favorite beach when you look at this card!!!  I combined three stamp sets into this image:  July SOTM, Seaside WOTG, and Ice Cold Summer.

I fell in love with the cabana look created when using the Seaside Paper Packet, retiring Smoothie Striped Washi Tape, Teal Shimmer Trim, Sorbet Cardstock, Glacier Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock, and Coral Reef Sequins.  The inks I used were Sorbet, Hollyhock, Desert Sand, Glacier, and Pear.  Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors and 3L E-Z Dots Adhesive were the basics I used.

Remember that the July SOTM is only available between July 1 and July 31, 2015.  Click here to order yours or visit with your own consultant.  Have fun creating with "Life is Wonderful"!
