Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Chelsea Garden meets Bashful

Welcome to our monthly hop!

We're excited to share our creativity with you using PRODUCTS
from Close To My Heart!!

Come on in and see what BEAUTIFUL projects my crafty friends have creating using the AMAZING products from Close To My Heart!!

 This blog hop is easy to do…just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next creation!!  If you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to see the list of this month’s hoppers! 

If you have arrived from my friend, Betty's blog you are right on track.

 We are in our 2nd month of the release of the Seasonal Expression 1 (SE1) and I'm still having so much fun using these beautiful products!

Today, I would like to share a card I created for my January Open House.  It uses a FAVORITE stamp set of mine, and these images are so BEAUTIFUL - they make ANYTHING beautiful that you create!! LOL!! :) 
This card design was taken from our Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 book - and is pattern #20. I know I mentioned it before...but I just ADORE our How-To sketch books that take the guess work out of the initial process of creating a design for our project! :) 

We used the FABULOUS, all around stamp set - "Splash of Color" to give us a "touch" of color on the Bashful cardstock at the top of the card.  

For the stamped images...we used the stamp set - Chelsea Gardens- cardmaking.  This stamp set is BEAUTIFUL, and has wonderful sentiments included in this stamp set too!! 

Then to color in the images...we used a couple different items :) One thing to note....stamped images were stamped with the BLACK MEMENTO ink...that way the black color didn't run. :) 

1. To color the 2 flowers - we used the Bashful Shimmer Brush!!  Yes...the Bashful has just a light touch of pink, that allows you to color directly onto the stamped image!!

2. To color the leaves & small butterfly - we used Re-inker & a watercolor brush! :) 

How EASY to take some re-inker, put a few drops on an acrylic block...and use your watercolor brush to "pick up" some color!  It really IS that easy...happy Coloring!!

Did you notice the 3D banner?  These are a BRAND NEW item in our Thin Cut line!! LOVE these!! 

Each pack includes 2 different banners!! (yes there are actually 4 designs of banners)

Here is the list of items I used to create the card above...
Make it From Your Heart, vol 4
Cardmaking Sketches
D1733 Splash of Color
Chelsea Gardens paper
CARDSTOCK: Bashful & Black
Reinkers: Glacier & Sweet Leaf

Bashful Shimmer Brush
Watercolor Brush- medium
Clear Sparkles

To find these items...just go to your consultants website & type the name into the Search bar at the top of her page!

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :)

February SOTM Blog Hop - Sunny Thoughts

Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!

If you have come here from Brandi's Blog, you are on the right track!!

This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE February SOTM stamp set called "Sunny Thoughts". 

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can START HERE & work your way around to the many consultants on this “hop”! If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

This month we have 25 Close To My Heart Consultants that will be sharing items using this month’s stamp set.  So, sit back & enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of each post to see what EVERY consultant has created.

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in February 2018.

This stamp set caught my eye immediately when I first paged through our Seasonal Expression 1 mini-book.  LOOK at those words, look at the font....the flowers & vines - OH MY! :)   

Let's take a look at the card I created using this stamp set.... 

I chose to use a NEW card design pattern, from our Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 How-To-Book.  If you enjoy creating cards - you'll want to make SURE to check out this wonderful NEW sketch book!!  CLICK HERE to check it out :)  

 I also chose to use the beautiful new paper - "Gimme Some Sugar".  This paper pack is so pretty!! 

Take a part of this card "looks like" paper, but it's's paper I stamped to make it look like paper!! :)  
Did you find it?? got it!!! That striped background was created using one of the borders in this stamp set!   

 Let's take another closer look, this time, at the circle where I stamped my sentiment.  
I ADORE the NEW Bashful Glitter Brush and try and use it whenever I can.  I traced the outside of the circle with the Bashful Glitter Brush!!  I love how the brush added just a little sparkle to the outside of the circle.  It was hard to capture on camera...but look closely, and I think you'll be able to see the shimmer. 

To finish off the card, I used some of our NEW Peacock Stitched Ribbon & the black shimmer dots come from the Chelsea Gardens Dots & Gems. 

Have a wonderful SUNNY day! :)  

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you! 

Now – it’s time to head over to check out my friend Gina's blog to see what CRAFTY items she has created using this stamp set!
