July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Life is Wonderful

Welcome to our July SOTM Blog Hop featuring our exclusive Life is Wonderful stamp set!  If you have come here from Terrie's blog you are on the right track.  This hop is one big circle so if you keep going you'll eventually head back here but if you get lost along the way, you can find the complete listing of participating CTMH Consultants by clicking HERE.

I wanted to create a birthday surprise card with this set so I used a bit of masking technique to make my sentiment read "something wonderful is about to happen".  
The smaller words on the right side are actually snipped from the Zip Strip and mounted on some coordinating CS.
On the inside I created a pop up surprise by mounting some Artiste cut balloons on strips of transparency.  
Our Confetti Wishes Paper Pack perfect for bright fun birthday cards!  The balloons and the Happy Birthday were cut with our Artiste cartridge and use a bit of retired Dream Pop CS.

If you'd like to order any of the products used to make this card and get your July SOTM for just $5 with a $50 order, visit my shopping site at:

Use Your Stash Blog Hop - June Watercolor Fun

Welcome to the June Use Your Stash Blog Hop!  This month we have been challenged to use our Watercolor mediums on a project of our choice. If you have come here from Priscilla's Blog you are on the right track! If you get lost along the way, a full listing of participating hoppers is at the bottom of this post.

Today I'm sharing a bright and colorful 8x10" multimedia canvas I made for this challenge. I absolutely LOVE the way this one turned out with the watercolor shading and the bright pops of colors. It shouts summer time and is totally a "me" thing!
I stamped a bunch of flowers from our Wavy Blooms D1651 stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with our Watercolor Pencils and some Inktense watercolor pencils all blended with our Blending Pen. All the flowers are popped with various levels of foam tape to give a nice dimensional look.
I added a couple of lines of our Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape and then stamped the sentiment directly on the canvas with Memento.  The vase is cut from Art Philosophy but modified to make it wider.  The leaves are cut from Topiary and Pear cardstock.

My Crush Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Crush Blog Hop - celebrating the June Special where you can get a free My Crush coordinating stamp with the purchase of a book and the accessory pack!  If you've come here from Lauren's Blog you are on the right track!  This hop is one big circle so eventually you'll come back here but if you get lost along the way you can find the complete listing of participating CTMH Consultant Bloggers HERE.

The My Crush line of books are perfect for quick memory keeping, creating a day planner or even taking apart to create artwork with the fabulous printed heavy weight papers inside.  Today I'm sharing a fun 5x7" card that I made by removing the papers from the Modville Book and using them as a card base and layers.  The My Crush book is sized 10x7" so the papers make perfect 5x7" bases when folded. 
I added a bit of stamping in Whisper ink with the Reel Life coordinating stamp set and a few of the stickers from the My Crush Best Day Ever Assortment.  I popped the stickers up to give the card some dimension by putting them on scrap paper and cutting around them. 

Through the end of June you can get the coordinating B sized stamp set ($9.95 value) when you purchase a My Crush book with the matching assortment! To see the selections visit my shopping site HERE:
