You Are My Happy - National Stamping Month Blog Hop!

2013-9 September_CC_ImageGallery_National Stamping Month
I’m so excited to be joining a group of almost 25 Close To My Heart  consultants where we will be sharing items that we CREATED using this FABULOUS “You Are My Happy” stamp sets! 

Here is a look at this AMAZING Trio of stamp sets!
These stamp sets can be yours for ONLY $10 - when you place a $50 order of Close To My Heart products with your CTMH Consultant (or click here if you need a consultant J) !

If you have come here from Vicki’s Blog, you are on the right track!

This blog hop is one BIG loop…so after you have seen my creation, feel free to click the link at the bottom of my post to go onto the next creation!  

Here is the card I created...

I used our NEWEST how-to book, Make It From Your Heart, volume 2 - Pattern #20, to create this card.  I LOVE the fun, new patterns in this WONDERFUL new how-to book!!

I pulled out our NEW paper pack Laughing Lola to create my “Happy” card.  I started by stamping the background of my white daisy cardstock with the script image from Universal Backgrounds stamp set. J

One of my Favorite things about this stamp set…
****this TRIO stamp set is Cricut Compatible!!  ****

What does this mean?  It means that 5 of the shapes in this stamp set, can be cut out using the Art Philosophy.  and you can stamp the coordinating image directly on top of the shape!!

For example - that’s EXACTLY what I did with the flower on my card!!  I cut the flower shape (on pg. 50) on the Art Philosophy cartridge out at 1 1/2”, and stamped the flower image PERFECTLY on top of the cut out shape!

Take a look at the flower…

I used 3 of our alcohol markers (they come in 80 colors!) to color in the one flower…Gypsy, Crystal Blue and the light Olive marker.

Did you notice the filled in flower petals?  Yes, I LOVE the Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel J

I am really excited about the Lagoon Washi Tape that I added to my bottom border.  I cut out a piece of black cardstock, and added the Washi tape directly over top!  ***Stay tuned, because in mid-Oct 2013 CTMH will be releasing 6 more washi tapes patterns & colors! Wahoo!****

The frame shape with the sentiment (You are my Happy) , came from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, key 6.  I used that wonderful glitz glitter gel to outline the frame, to carry over the sparkle and shine on this card. J

Did you notice the black scallop border?  That is what our NEW Scallop Border Punch can do!!

I’ve been using this border punch on so many things!!  It works great to scallop our rolls of shimmer trim OR edge any paper or cardstock, like I did here! J


Since I was having so much fun creating with the Laughing Lola paper pack, I decided to create some 3x3 cards with my leftover scraps too!

I hope this inspires you to create some projects of your own! J

I really loved the FLOWER that comes in the You Are Happy Stamp set, and wanted to see if I HAD to color it in with markers, or could I just stamp it on colored cardstock. J 
What do you think??? J
