Emboss It Blog Hop~~Skylark

Welcome to our Emboss It Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Close To My Heart's NEW product, Embossing folders.  If you have come here from Terry Ann's Blogg, It's My Garage , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.
For this special Emboss It Blog Hop we have 26 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using different embossing folders and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

For today's project I used the Damask Folder on Creme Brulee cardstock for the background of my card.  I distressed the edges of the card with Cocoa and Lagoon Inks.  I also swiped straight from the inkpad onto the embossed cardstock to highlight the embossing and add to the distressed look.


 The bird image is directly from the Skylark paper pack...no stamping involved today, making this a fairly easy project to duplicate.  I simply cut out the image I wanted to use with my paper cutter, and then tore the one corner, adding even more texture to this card.  I did add another creme brulee cardstock ribbon to the other "ribbons" already on the paper, just to add some balance to the colors.  I also cut out the sentiment directly from the same sheet of Skylark B&T.  I backed it with some more of the Skylark B&T for some added depth.

The branch and flower that the bird is sitting on is also preprinted on the paper, but I did highlight  them using our colored pencils and a simple water brush.  Then all that was left was to add some sparkle flourishes for some extra bling and now my card is finished for a very special friend.  Thank you for looking at my work, I hope it inspires you to do some embossing of your own.

Now "Hop" on over to Joy'sBlog, Wow...Did You Make That!  to see her Embossing fun! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great inspiring and fun ideas! Remember, if you would like to order one of these unique embossing folders you can get it right on my page for just $8.95!

Happy Place~~March's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is Happy Place, a set of 7 stamps.  If you have come here from Toni's Blog, Wholly Crafts, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This is such a "Happy" stamp set, these little dolls, or "matryoshkas" always make me smile.  
 I used the Jubilee paper pack with these because it's so bright and cheery.  For the background, I used Creme Brulee cardstock which I ran through my cuttlebug with CTMH's new embossing folder.  This was my first time practicing with these, and I love them, the embossing is so crisp!  I used our cranberry pigment ink to highlight the raised part of the quatrefoil design so it would match the ink I used for the dolls and the sentiment.  The dolls are colored with CTMH alcohol markers so they can be as vibrant and rich as the real dolls. 
Here are the stamps included in this Happy set.  I love all the cute sentiments.

 I hope you enjoy my card as much as I've enjoyed making it.  Leave a comment below before heading off to see what delightful fun Melinda has ready for you.  Be sure to enjoy the rest of the hops along our little Happy Place Blog Hop!

Remember, the March SOTM is only available until March 31st!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5.00!

Nursery Rhymes With Artbooking Made Easy

Another fantastic Artbooking video for your enjoyment

There are some absolutely adorable layouts made with this key on the cartridge.  I even made some myself, I couldn't resist that adorable little owl.  And they are not just for girls, here's one I did for my cute little nephew.
I used our brown and tan glitter papers for the little owl and used him for  a sleepy time page.
Be sure to check out Jeanette Lynton's Blog too for some close ups of the layouts on the video.  I love how they used the new paper fundamentals for the little girl's owl.  It really makes it pop.
